Philosophenomena’s Unity Fest 2015

Standard

On March 21, 2015 Avalouna will be appearing at Philosophenomena’s Unity Fest in Glen Rose, TX. Last year we appeared at Weird Tex Fest at the same venue, which was put on by the same event producers. It was a wonderful event and we had such a blast and are so honored to be the entertainment this year at Unity Fest!

We will be performing the premiere of our Murderous Ghosts set, which is not only a bellydance performance, but the first in our series of theatrical bellydance pieces which tell an entire story in 30 minutes or less. We are so excited to present this new format of show to you and are really, really excited about this piece. It will be making its way around in the future, but for now, to see the whole thing, you should come to Unity Fest! If you’re not able, never fear, we will be posting it on YouTube!

Also later in the day I will be teaching a 30 minute mini workshop. It is included with entry to the event and suitable for total beginners!

Our performance is at 1pm, workshop at 3:30. There is also a wide array of speakers on all things supernatural and paranormal! There are also plenty of vendors to fulfill your shopping needs. This is a really fabulous event and it also is a charity event with proceeds going to Cancer Care Services.

Come out and see us, see the event page on Facebook at this link and buy tickets on eventbrite at the link below!

Next Show! Bat’s World Charity Show at Mable Peabody’s!

Standard

Hello everyone! We are so thrilled to have been asked back by Lemme Addams to appear in the Stardust Revue for the Bat World Charity Show. Bat’s World Sanctuary is a charity that provides care and homing for bats who might not otherwise have a chance.

From the Bat’s World Sanctuary Facebook page “Bat World Sanctuary is on the front line to end the abuse and destruction of bats. Each year we rescue hundreds of bats who might otherwise die. Lifetime sanctuary is given to non-releasable bats, including those that are orphaned, injured, confiscated from the illegal pet trade and retired from zoos and research facilities. Bat World Sanctuary was founded in 1994 and is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization. Donations allow us to continue our rescue efforts for bats.”

Address:
Bat World Sanctuary
299 High Point Rd
Weatherford, TX 76088

We love doing Charity shows and this is a great cause, plus 100% of the proceeds will go to the Sanctuary. So come out on February 7 at 10pm to Mable Peabody’s in Denton, TX and watch us dance, along with many wonderful performers. Avalouna will be doing a super sexy piece and I will be doing another solo that is super special. The whole show is LOVE themed so get ready to feel the love!

It’s Almost A New Year!!!

Standard
It’s Almost A New Year!!!

Wow. 2014 was an amazing and hard year, for most people, as I’ve heard. We got the opportunity to do so many things, perform so many cool places and it was a blast! The girls married me off to the love of my life and we had a collectively ridiculously good time. 2014 was hard, too, for lots of people on a personal level. I felt it, too, and if you had a rough year, I am sorry and hope 2015 is much brighter.

So what do we have planned for 2015? Well we are (always) in the process of more bookings, adding shows and stuff, but we have some pretty neat things coming up!

First on the agenda is Jan 10’s show at Mable Peabody’s. We were asked by the lovely Lemme Addams to return to her show and perform at Whiskey Tongue Burlesque’s 4th Anniversary! We, of course, said yes and started trying to decide what we wanted to do. I won’t give away any spoilers here, you’ll have to get your butt down to Mable’s in Denton around 10pm on the 10th to find out, or catch it on our YouTube channel, but I will say that we are performing a duet, Cassandra and I, and the tag line is “Bela Lugosi’s Dead with 2 Undead Sirens”. So chew on that a little! Also I will be performing a solo! While I solo during sets often, it’s rare for me to do a stand alone solo, but I am, and will be a “wayward gypsy lost in a jazz club!” So you don’t want to miss it!

Next on February 7, we will be back at Mable’s for the Bat’s World Charity Show, another show by Lemme and will be doing some slinky, Valentine’s lovey stuff!

February 14 will find us in Arkansas in Washington, which was apparently the first Capitol of the Confederate army. We will be joining our friends from O’Malley’s Prayer Band for a private event, but I’m sure there will be video! Yes, we’re taking the bellydance wives to a gig for Valentine’s Day. (They’re thoroughly looking forward to it. No but really, I think they’re bringing their swords!)

March 21, we will be heading back to Glen Rose, TX for Philosophenomena’s Unity Fest. Last year we performed at Weird Tex Fest at the same venue, which was put on by the same people! It was fabulous and we are super excited about it!

This event will also mark the premiere of the Murderous Ghosts set. I have a new thing I’m trying this year, which carries on our highly theatrical nature and takes it a step further by doing 25-30 minute “sets” which tell a full story sequentially through the music we pick and the dances themselves. Instead of just random songs put together, these will have a story. We have several of these in the works including the “Bad Girls” set and the revamped “Americana Grunge Steampunk” set. This will also offer private clients the ability to see a full show, and pick which one they would like to have at their event, if they don’t have something already in mind. We’re really excited about this new method and are hard at work at it!

Also at Unity Fest, I will be teaching a short workshop before our performance for FREE so, come see us dance and dance with me a little! It will be very beginner friendly and I believe 30 minutes long. They have some great speakers and vendors lined up for the show, too!

March 28 we will be appearing at The Re-Awakening in Dallas, further details TBA, though we are super pumped about this as we LOVED The Awakening last year.

And for April and beyond you will have to stay tuned as we are ironing out the calendar further! See below for links to purchase tickets for Lemme’s January 10 show at Mable Peabody’s in Denton and a link to purchase tickets to Philosophenomena’s Unity Fest! You have just a couple if days left for General Admission early bird pricing for that one so hop on it!!

Smiles and shimmies and Auld Lang Syne and whatnot! 🙂 Elena

Lemme Addams’ Naughty Noel

Lemme Addams’ Naughty Noel

Wow! We had an absolute blast performing in our first burlesque show. Lemme is absolutely adorable and so sweet, the organization of the event was superb, the audience was great and there were so many amazing performers! The star of the show was the absolutely breathtaking Vivienne Vermouth, who was not only mesmerizing onstage, but so sweet backstage. We adored her Old Hollywood vintage glamour.

Starting the day off was a celebratory lunch to celebrate our dear Assistant Director, Zahra’s graduation from university. We are so very, very proud of her!!!

We then had some last minute costume ideas and thought “Hey! We’re in a burlesque show! Let’s bellydance in CORSETS!!” Luckily Cassandra usually has 2-4 corsets with her at all times and Zahra had one, so we laced up and it was marvelous! I want to bellydance in a corset all the time.

We got to watch the first act of the show, then got ready and lots of rhinestones, glitter and marabou feather boas and we were ready to go on. Oh and did I mention the giant candy canes? We danced saiidi with giant candy canes!

Here are a few pictures and I’ll post the video later today! Subscribe to the Three Fates YouTube channel to see new performances as soon as they’re updated and like our Facebook page for daily updates and news!
