2nd\NE Quadrant: The Approval Matrix
Impresario Ross Mollison announced today [July 3, 2008] that Spiegelworld 2008 will return to the South Street Seaport, Pier 17, for its third annual summer carnival, running August 6 to November 2, 2008. Once again, Spiegelworld will deliver a non-stop program of ground-breaking shows, intimate concerts, brazen burlesque, the city's top DJs and superb dining, all at one stunning location.
Mr. Mollison also announced that this year's Spiegelworld New York will present the world premiere of Désir, a daring new theatrical circus experience.
"Never before has such a lavish production been created for a Spiegeltent," Mr. Mollison said. "We have assembled the most beautiful aerial and acrobatic acts from around the world, some of which have never been seen before in such an intimate performance space."
Inspired by the sexual, intellectual and artistic adventurers of early 20th century Paris, Désir will take audiences backstage at the greatest nightclub the world has known.
Absinthe, the number one NYC summer event since 2006, will again take New York by storm with a brand new line up of talent from the seediest and sexiest cabaret dens of the world.
Spiegelworld 2008 will also feature the filthy-rich host of Absinthe, The Gazillionaire, in the premiere of his very own fully-staged variety show of questionable entertainment: The Gazillionaire's Late Nite Lounge, playing six nights a week in The Deluxe, with his band Fish Circus. -- Broadway World
