Welcome Spring!

, , , , , ,

It was a rough winter here on the East Coast, but on this beautiful warm day it seems that Spring has finally arrived for good. We’ve been busy bees at our Lux Arati headquarters, scheming and dreaming and working away at new and exciting things for the upcoming summer. New tricks to learn, new props to play with and always more costumes to make! We’re all really excited about what we’ve got in store for the months ahead. Keep an eye on this space and our facebook page for some sneak peaks and updates on where we’ll be performing next.

While I’m pretty sure I’ve posted this before, I figure can’t hurt to share again. For all those out there with nice toasty wicks, here’s a quick way to refresh your props so you’re ready to go this summer. Enjoy, and burn bright!

Looking for something fun to do this chilly Valentine’s Weekend? Heat things up at Heartburn! We won’t be performing as a group this year, but some of our ladies will be there to entertain. Check out our lovely Miss Xtina with a burlesque piece, I’m sure you won’t want to miss it.

2014 Krampuslauf

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Every year Philadelphia Krampuslauf gets bigger and better! This year was no exception. There’s something about the crowd, the collaboration, the excitement…. everyone is really there to have a great time. The costumes are consistently amazing. I wish that we could march with the parade, but we’re usually setting up for the show. We had our full group this year, which was a ton of fun. Lots of fur (we scrabbled around at local thrift stores to find the real stuff… you want to singe, not melt!) and home made horns- we even got to use the AMAZING headdresses that Xtina made a few years ago. (They’re also going to be displayed at the Krampuslauf exhibit at iMPeRFeCT Gallery in January — “UNVERIFIED PERSONAL GNOSIS: KRAMPUSLAUF PHILADELPHIA, PARADE OF SPIRITS”)

Enough rambling. Photos!!! These photos are all copyright their respective photographers, who we thank profusely for allowing us to share here.

Krampus AND the first Philly Flow Social!

We are going to be some busy ladies on December 13th! First… Krampuslauf!! Krampuslauf2014PosterOne of our favorite events of the year! We’ve got some fun stuff planned, including a mini kids showcase as an opening act- right after the procession and before we light up the stage. Really can’t wait. Our fingers are crossed that the weather is a bit better than last year… as always, its a free family-friendly event, so bundle up the kidlets and come on by! There’s even going to be a food truck with some special Krampuslauf dishes.

Then, if you’re in Philly anyway, why not come by the first ever Flow Social?? It’s a non-fire event, but that means its in a warm and toasty indoor location, so a perfect place to thaw after Krampuslauf. There’s a great lineup, its definitely worth checking out. Tickets can be purchased here.

Happy Halloween

We had a lot of fun this Halloween over at the Twisted Tail for the second year in a row. Whenever we perform in public there are always countless lenses aimed at us… I do the best I can to track down photos that are made public (thank you, geotagged instagram posts!) but occasionally I manage to touch base with some actual photographers on-site. Thank you so much, J. Allen, for following up on the business card quickly forced into your hand by a sweaty and sooty fire dancer! Check out more of his work here.
