Saturday November 8th 8pm-Mid

A fun night out full of art, mystery and suspense with a masquerade ball where performers are mixed in with the audience for a whole night of surprises.



In celebration of Maida Withers’ Dance Company’s 40th anniversary, Art Whino is throwing a masquerade ball full of mystery and surprise. This full sensory experience will combine performance art with experimental dance, live music, and a silent art auction where artist will paint Masquerade masks the audience will wear in this moving art exhibit.  Embracing the spirit of the night’s ambiance, dress code will require masquerade masks along with your most eclectic outfit to impress. Once you enter Blind Whino you will become a part of an ongoing performance as members of the audience will have the dance company interweaved in it who will break into spontaneous dance before your eyes throughout all the spaces in the building. As performers and guests mingle in anonymity, the silent auction masks will take life as they move throughout the building as people wear them. This night of celebration will be complete with live music sets and drinks that will compliment the unique immersive experience.
