HOUSE OF SUAREZ has announced a Three-Day Bender coming to the city this October.
Film, fashion and fierce voguing all combine from Fri 19 – Sun 21 October with events including Elements of Vogue, The Vogue Ball, and Liverpool is Burning all part of the line-up, as well as a fashion exhibition at Museum of Liverpool and a brand-new vogue documentary at FACT.
Opening the festival on Fri 19 October is the annual dance event Elements of Vogue which celebrates the very best new and emerging vogue talent. Including local and national performers, as well as professional artists, the show fuses vogue, commercial and contemporary dance styles.
Sat 20 October is the main event with the return of the hugely popular annual Vogue Ball, taking place at The Invisible Wind Factory.
Keeping the party going until the early hours of Sunday morning, the official after-party Liverpool is Burning will commence directly after the Vogue Ball. Based on the iconic vogue film Paris is Burning, the club night is free for all Vogue Ball ticket holders.
Also forming part of the festival, House of Suarez has announced a brand-new avenue for its work with a fashion exhibition, shown exclusively at the world class Museum of Liverpool.
Featuring a collection of some of the most creative and beautiful costume commissions to ever walk the runway at past Vogue Ball’s and feature in world premier dance performances, it forms part of the ongoing Tales from the City exhibition of Liverpool’s historic LGBT+ culture.
Closing the festival, House of Suarez will be presenting the Unlimited House of Krip documentary at FACT cinema on Sun 21 October.
This documentary gives audiences an insight into the incredible journey, trials and tribulations experienced by House of Krip, a group of international deaf artists as they take part in their first House of Suarez Ball in 2017.
The screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with festival director Darren Suarez, who will talk about the work of the company and their aspirations for the future presented alongside live performances.
Darren Suarez, Artistic Director of House of Suarez, said: “I am incredibly excited to be announcing this brand-new chapter for House of Suarez. The Three-Day Bender will incorporate all the amazing aspects of Vogue.
“The Vogue Ball and Elements of Vogue have gained huge momentum over the last few years with the audience reaction being truly phenomenal, and 2018 promises to be even better! The fashion exhibition and documentary will aim to give audiences a further insight in to the creativity and work that goes on behind the scenes and the whole weekend promises to be a fierce Vogue extravaganza.”
