NEWS: Liverpool’s audacious Vogue Ball returns for a third year, 6 Oct 2012

Following the massive success of ‘The Death By Glitter’ Vogue Ball in 2011, renowned dance company House of Suarez returns to announce that their award-winning Vogue Ball is back. It will sashay into its new home at Camp and Furnace on 6 October. This year’s event will take on a Twisted Fairytales theme as it returns for a third outing, bringing its debauched magic to Camp and Furnace, turning the city’s most happening new venue into a catwalk spectacular reminiscent of 1970s/80s New York (the home of the Vogue dance style) at its most glamorous.

Once upon a time in 2010, a renowned Liverpool choreographer and lifelong Vogue aficionado named Darren Suarez dreamed up what has now become the stuff of fairytales. Since its inception House of Suarez has irrevocably shown that it is a force to be reckoned with in the events world, with the Vogue Ball winning ‘Best Annual Event’ at the Seen Awards in 2011. It is a dance event like no other in the UK – where club culture meets high art and Vogue teams (known as ‘houses’) come together from far and wide to compete for dance supremacy, wearing creative costumes that are often as lavish as Cinderella’s ball-gown. 

The Twisted Fairytales Vogue Ball asks its princes, princesses and evil queens to display a similar fierce attitude through the artisan performance battles. Dancers will strut, pose and sashay their way through tales of old, bringing them slap bang into the 21st century. 

 

This will be the most outrageous and extravagant vogue ball to date, and audiences are in for a bewitching display of all our favourite fairytale characters releasing their inner diva, hosted by the annual father of Liverpool’s Vogue Ball Rikki Beadle-Blair.

The evening will reveal the premiere of an amazing new work from House of Suarez artistic director, Darren Suarez. ‘From Disney to Diva’ brings theatre and vogue styles together again, this piece will see some original company members take to the runway as well as some new ones. The award-winning vogue ball will certainly be one of the most opulent and diva- esque evenings of 2012.

Darren Suarez, Artistic Director of House of Suarez said: “I can’t wait to bring Liverpool its biggest Vogue Ball yet in such a creative new venue. The talent showcased in the past 2 years has been incredible and I think this year’s theme will bring even more spectacular results from competing houses, inspiring them to bring their most magical moves. I am really looking forward to showcasing the new work from House of Suarez, From Disney to Diva. The fairytale theme has never been so current, with re-imagined fairytales cropping up in cinema and on TV, and House of Suarez aims to turn this idea on its head so we see alter egos of these well known characters, so sit back and watch all our favourites release their inner diva!”
