Hi Artist x Airbnb Experiences present the Brooklyn Speakeasy Dance Show
October 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$30
Hailed by Gothamist as one of “The Best Things To Do In NYC,” Hi Artist events combine an intimate dance performance with a lively gathering to deliver a “once in a lifetime experience” featuring “some of the most creative [dancers] in the country” (Airbnb). Guests enter the private loft of 61 Local—referred to by Time Out New York as “the new nerve center” of Brooklyn’s craft brew scene—through a discreet back door, transporting them to a speakeasy dance theater where everyone has a front row seat. Hi Artist founders Elizabeth Cooke and Xenia Mansour (who are also local dancers) emcee the evening, providing additional context about the artists and sharing untold stories behind the dance pieces being shown. Intimacy reigns supreme: events end with the performers joining the audience for drinks and conversation, giving guests the unique opportunity to meet and mingle with the artists after the show.
The October 16th event showcases an array of dance styles from contemporary to Indian. The program includes a new solo by Urban Indian dancer Ishita Mili, a duet by Doug Varone dancer Hollis Bartlett and Nattie Trogdon, a solo by Brooklyn-based artist jess pretty, and more.
