THE STORY

In the realm where Bowie and fantasy cross paths so perfectly, there is a masquerade ball dripping with billowing white fabric, glittering crystals, pearls, twinkling lights and gilded masks. Now, imagine we've turned this 80's childhood Labyrinth fantasy into a reality that effervesces with puppets, creatures, and wave after wave of enchanting live music and thrilling performance art all hosted by The Goblin King himself!

The Chapel
The Chapel

This is what Rabbit Quinn and Containher are creating for you and our incredibly creative community for one night of absolute magic at The Chapel, the illustrious music venue in San Francisco. This year has been challenging, to say the least. We wanted to combat the ugliness with beauty and community by bringing us together to create something none of us could create alone!  Through dark times we will shine twice as bright! 

Decorations by Asiel Design
Decorations by Asiel Design

We've gathered incredible performers, set designers, and artists of all mediums to draft up the blueprint for an unforgettable evening!

Together with the marketing team that supports the annual Edwardian Ball, Paradox Media, and with the help of sponsors like Asiel Design from San Jose (bringing beautiful shiny things) .....the night we have in store for you will be absolutely stunning in the picturesque and Bowie-loving setting of The Chapel! 

YOUR contributions will support all of the fantastic sets as they are being made! We'll be posting updates of the pieces each day leading up to the event!  

Our ball will feature drag, burlesque, dance, puppetry and will also host tarot and tea readings. Entering the space will be entering another reality!

Pianist, vocalist and songwriter Rabbit Quinn crafts otherworldly fables reminiscent of unconventional piano rock storytellers such as Kate Bush, Nina Simone, Tom Waits and Tori Amos. After two successfully funded albums on Kickstarter and a sold out album release show — for her sophomore record, "Painted Fan" (recorded at Tiny Telephone) — at the famous Cafe du Nord last year, Rabbit sang the national anthem for the A's 50th Anniversary game at Oakland Colosseum.

ContainHer

ContainHer is a female artist, vocalist and electronic music producer that weaves transcendental sci-fi dreams into indy electro pop that scintillates with warmth and emotion. She likens her solo music to "Depeche Mode riding the luck dragon from the Never Ending Story under an ABBA sun". Along with performing in the Bay Area, she has composed a number of video game and film soundtracks, recently contributing to the beautiful independent game "Ghost of A Tale".

Shadow Creature Circus Theatre

A powerhouse that channels Palmer's theatrical brand of rock along with echoes of past glam greats - '70s Bowie, Roxy Music, T.Rex, etc. Robichaud — who is originally from North Carolina and competed on The Voice in 2013 — has an incredible voice that effortlessly balances everything from razor wit to raw emotion. She will be performing with keyboardist Brendan Getzell, who accompanies her in her spectacular variety show, Misfit Cabaret.

Unwoman

Unwoman has been featured at steampunk, goth, and sci-fi-related events all over North America and has performed with Abney Park, Rasputina, Voltaire, Amanda Palmer, Stripmall Architecture.

Lysol-Tony Romero as The Goblin King

MC Lysol-Tony Romero will bring Jareth to life as an experienced member of SF's beloved Bowie Tribute Band, First Church of the Sacred Silversexual. FCSS puts on musical, theatrical, sparkly spectacles that tap dance on all the lines between religion and revelry, rock show and revival.

Operatic Aerialist Sophia Prize

A true songbird, Sophia soars through the air as she sings. She earned her Master of Music at the San Francisco Conservatory and her penchant for Mozart and Bellini blossomed into an ethereal, yet darkly spirited, electronic pop sound which she combines with thrilling aerials.
