“The Black Party, the granddaddy of all gay ‘circuit’ parties, is an annual rite-of-spring bacchanal that turns (40) this year, a remarkable run by any standard.” The New York Times
This 18-hour dance ritual and fetish fantasia will indulge all your senses and tap into unexplored carnal cravings. Whether you’re coming to release endorphins in an underground dance marathon soundtracked by world-class DJs or witness the legendary “Strange Live Acts” that won’t end up on social media or cruise dark corners where your wildest dreams can come true, THE BLACK PARTY is a one-night only, immersive theatrical event unlike any offered elsewhere in the world. Since 1980, THE BLACK PARTY has aptly provided its loyal international audience with a cathartic social, sexual and spiritual pilgrimage designed to purge participants of their dark winter demons and summon their sunnier springtime demeanors. All other details of this gay tribal phenomenon with its cult-like following are meant to be experienced first hand.
The Saint At Large exists in the space where music, dance and art collide. For close to 40 years, it has retained its reputation for provocation with cutting-edge, theatrical innovation and staging. It continues to transform audiences with large-scale immersive installations set against progressive beats from the burgeoning gay underground music scene. Its mantle helps keep New York City on top of the list of nightlife capitals.
