A new fashion is being created! Blending the sensuous imagery of the Tropics with the melancholy darkness of Gothic fashion, we present Tropi-Goth. Attendees are encouraged to dress up, wear a mask, and ladies to have fans, just like at Truman Capote’s infamous Black and White Ball at the Plaza Hotel in 1966. The evening will culminate with a performance by local Southernmost Situations, premiering a dazzling inversion of the murderous Bluebeard story. A collaboration of performers including Liz Ferrer and myself (Christina Pettersson), Jeffrey Winthrop, Sebastian Duncan, Portuondo Liony Garcia, Eli Peck, and Bhakti Baxter will be playing Romance-Tropic-gothy tunes all night. We promise this will be a night to remember.
