Communikey Festival 2011: Kiss & Tell photo gallery
Spring is in the air.... On Sunday April 17, a very auspicious day indeed, a full moon will be on the horizon, and we will be in Colorado celebrating the final day of Communikey Festival. For the special out of town voyage, we are hosting a unique edition of Kiss & Tell at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
Taking inspiration from Igor Stravinsky's infamous 1913 ballet The Rite of Spring, expect to attend a riot of a party! When the ballet first premiered almost a hundred years ago, the audience caused an uproar because the music and performance was far too avant guard. Unlike most perfectly pleasant ballets of it's era, this one had ugly pagans that sacrifice a maiden to propitiate the gods of spring. The crowd was so disturbed that fighting broke out in the auditorium. The Rite of Spring later became one of the most appreciate and adored scores, it was even used in 1940 to create the most memorable scenes in Walt Disney's Fantasia.
At this magical closing pageant of Communikey Festival our favorite DJs Mick Huckaby, Bethany Benzur, and Bryan Kasenic will treat us to spectacular sets of rare italo, cosmic disco, space pop, and other vintage dance music delights.
We have been working furiously on creating a flower explosion of hundreds of recycled paper flowers to decorate the gallery walls and make the night even more glorious. Meghan Rozell has a team working on flowers in Boulder, and Seze Devres has her good lady friends helping out in Brooklyn. Expect to dance, among delicate handmade flowers, to sexy disco tunes.
Dress to impress: Fun and fancy floral dresses and ties, wear anything with flower patterns, wear flowers in your hair, be a flirty ballerina or dress like your inner flower child, wear all white and mix in with all the paper wallflowers we have made just for you! Don't forget to wear your dancing shoes.
