The Lost Circus
Details & RSVP:http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html
Sat, July 31, 11:59pm-4am,



The Circus is said to have started in ancient Egypt when the court entertainers of an immortal Pharaoh escaped their slavery under a midnight moon. They have traveled the globe for centuries, gathering talent from every great empire as the empire itself begins to crumble: Istanbul, Saint Petersburg, London, Berlin...and now they have made it across the sea.

At the stroke of midnight, discover a circus long lost. With music from times gone by or times that never were: dark string fusion by Brooklyn's own Copal and bohemian cabaret in 13 languages by Vagabond Opera - our special guests from Portland, OR. And announcing our secret guest: circus composer Sxip Shirey, on his last night before he leaves NYC.

The circus unfolds to the bands and in between: mind-bending contortion by Jonathan Nosan, aerial dance by Madeline Hoak; tribal fusion bellydance by Lauren Robbiani and special guest Rio; fire & gorgeousness by Ali Luminescent; gypsy fortunetelling by Kai Altair; an original installation & performance by artist (and Minsky Sister) Kristen Rhea van Liew. Kinetically sculptural poem of bondage, beauty, and light by The Baroness. Beautiful costumed creatures perform feats of fire in the courtyard. Dusty circus visuals set the mood. DJ sophybot fascinates your ears with a renegade circus tent soundtrack. With your ever-dapper host, steampunk author G.D. Falksen . Fanciful body artistry by AMBodyArt. Photo-op custom art installation with works by Molly Crabapple and Kathleen Green.

There will be a film crew from France shooting a Doc for French TV at this event so it is a chance to get on TV as well.

Dress code (required): dark cabaret, traveling circus, steampunk, Victorian, Edward Gorey,City of Lost Children.

What is steampunk?
Steampunk is the science fiction of the steam age, re-imagined with the advantage of modern hindsight. Drawing upon the wealth of historical technology and the scientific fantasies of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, steampunk seeks to reinvent modern wonders such as the computer as the people of the age might have envisioned them. Following in the footsteps of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, steampunk authors blend history, science and imagination into a world of wonder that might have been.

What were the pulp magazines?
Pulp adventure magazines were a genre of exciting and daring fiction, inspired by the great upheavals and worldwide uncertainty that developed in the wake of the First World War. Fueled by adrenaline and the greatest wonders that mid-20th century technology has to offer, Pulp explores exotic locales and terrible dangers without blinking an eye. Tackling mad scientists, would-be world conquerors, ancient curses, and even horrors from beyond the stars is all in a day’s work for any Pulp hero worth his or her salt.
Ladies and gentlemen, here is an update to all of you planning on attending this year's annual Time Travel Picnic, being held on August 2nd, the opening day of the Tuxedo, New York Renn Faire.
Everyone will assemble OUTSIDE the main gate, so that all attendees will have an easier time finding one another before having to go inside. We will be meeting at around 1:00 pm, and while I am certain the group will not mind waiting a little while for stragglers, I would advise everyone to show up no latter than 1:15. If it happens that you show up after the main party has gone inside, please do not panic. Simply stroll about at your leisure: we should not be difficult to spot.

We will be holding a picnic inside after everyone has assembled. Food is available for purchase at the faire. For those of you interested in bringing your own items, please note that as far as I am aware the faire does not allow outside food or drink (although I don't recall them being overly thorough in their searching). If you do decide to be scandalous and bring your own nourishment, make sure it is hidden (though of course I discourage such action in the strongest possible terms, etc.)

Admission information can be found on the main page of the website. In addition, I believe there is a $10 discount coupon available for the opening weekend (the Time Travel Picnic weekend), which is explained here: http://www.renfair.com/NY/tickets/08coupon_web.php
and can be downloaded here: http://www.renfair.com/NY/tickets/08coupon_download.php

Directions can be found here: http://www.renfair.com/NY/general/maptofaire.php


Please remember that those of you attending are free to dress however you please, although the Time Travel Picnic is an opportunity to wear your favorite warm-weather steampunk/Victorian outfit, which is what I shall be doing. And, on that note, I leave you with the following inspirational figures:
