Temple of Venus

Posted September 13th, 2019

September 13, 2019

The Temple of Venus is open for worship on Friday the 13th of September. Holding space with light, sound, flesh, scent, and taste, this immersive experience is centered on the divine feminine, presented through an interactive flesh suspension, art installation, accompanied by poetry, burlesque, and ritual. Enjoy a submersion of the senses with curated cocktails and snacks as you explore an ancient artform brought to new life in the city, in honor of Venus.

$50 / 90 minutes


The Collective of Jawn is a group of multi-disciplinary practitioners who have come together to weave their magick and create beautiful environments with a blend of hook suspension, rope, dance, performance, art installations, burlesque, poetry and photography.

Using exemplary stagecraft and thoughtful curation of aesthetic elements, Temple of Venus will feature suspension of Amanda Mandalay and Will Atkins by Orban Isma of The Skin Project, performances from Eyrie Twilight, Miss V and others of Hexwork, visual alchemy from Brent of Tiv Photos, and coordination from the creative minds of ELECTROCUTE. “Beauty that exists on the fringe has always fascinated people, as strange and bewildering as it may seem,” says Amanda Mandalay, creative director of ELECTROCUTE, “Temple of Venus is a chance for us to showcase some of the more cultural aspects of the occult in modern-day terms. Beyond ancient history and beauty standards, I am happy to say that our show presents a taste of Occulture that is diverse, decadent, and playful in its respect of the divine.”

About the Artists

Eyrie Twilight has been creating live Occulture since 2014 with the inception of Hexwork- A Spellbinding Burlesk Revue, a twice annual celebration of the Sacred and the Sexy, featuring a rotating cast of performances exploring themes of death and the divine feminine.

An expert at ephemeral capture, Brent has expanded his creative vision from the camera to creating immersive pieces integrating ascetic experiences through technology. His mercurial talents inform the audience and provide beautiful, engaging backdrops for your photos.

Orban Isma is a multi-disciplinary artist, that works primarily with rope, metal, and the human body. His focus is in exploring the connections between geometry and the human sensory experience, and as a result, finds himself in the realm of the occult often. His primary medium of interest is that of body suspension, which led to his founding of Anchors Aweigh in 2011, and The Skin Project in 2015.

Amanda “SpOoky” Mandalay is a dark artist who embodies the adage “variety is the spice of life” with her diverse background in aerial acrobatics, dance, flow arts, body modification and performance coordination. Her penchant for the unusual and the beautiful show in her designs, themed acts and visually arresting stage presence. She has been directing and performing in shows with ELECTROCUTE since 2010 and is the creative force behind Nightmare Festival, Dreamscape, and others.

The Collective of Jawn celebrates all that the spirits of Love and Beauty have to offer in their show and become alchemists in their own right; blending their skills and transforming them into a fusion of their own that is the Temple of Venus.

This immersive dance experience places the audience in and around the performance space in an unconventional theater setup. The all-female cast from NYC-based Inclined Dance Project invites the audience to experience dance from a fresh point of view and explore new perceptions of environment.

$15 / 60 minutes


Inclined Dance Project is an all-female Brooklyn-based contemporary dance company which strives to present visually intricate landscapes inspired and propelled by human experiences. As an all-female dance company Inclined aims to challenge the stereotypical roles of a female dancer by creating works that defy gender and physicality. Derived from a fusion of classic dance vocabulary, pedestrian mannerisms, and contemporary ideas, IDP aims to create work that tests the imagination of audiences. Inclined approaches dance-making through a “set and destroy” method, allowing the performers and collaborating artists the opportunity to deconstruct material and incite dialogue, exploration, and personal contribution to a work. The end result is athletic, technical, and dynamic movement that challenges the dancer and engages audiences.

Inclined Dance Project was founded by Artistic Director Kristen Klein in 2009 and the company has performed at many venues and festivals throughout New York City, New England, and San Francisco including Boston University, The Brooklyn Academy of Music: Fishman Space, the Ailey Citigroup Theater, Baruch College, Dixon Place, Little Boxes Theatre, The Dance Complex, Chen Dance Center, the Center for Performance Research, University Settlement, the Martha Graham Center for Contemporary Dance, Greenspace, The Actors Fund Arts Center, Triskelion Arts, RAW Artists, the Totts Gap Arts Institute, and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, among many others. The company is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas and has been featured in Dance Spirit Magazine, The Huffington Post, Critical Dance Magazine, DiY Dancer, FitEngine Reviews, offoffoff Dance, and on Dancemedia.com.

Inside, discovery is paramount as players embark on a journey filled with unexpected encounters. Throughout more than 6,000 square feet, players will be thrust into a story that’s out of this world as they meet unsettling characters and explore elaborately designed sets.

About Play Nice Productions
In today’s world, bullying is all around us—in books, in movies, on TV, in schools, on playgrounds, and in workplaces. Our children are watching as divisive behavior is normalized. Adults must teach kids to be kind and to make good choices. Why not make that learning fun through interactive children’s theater, a medium good for both auditory and visual learners? Play Nice Productions was created in May 2019 to offer young children interactive and exciting theater experiences that will help them learn to be kind, empathetic, and inclusive individuals. Our first show is a 45-minute play, Billy the Baaadly Behaving Bully Goat: The Musical, during which a young bully goat must learn how his mean behavior affects others. Kids aged 4–9 will laugh, sing, and interact with our talented cast—all while learning to be caring and compassionate up-standers.

This play will be performed six times during the 2019 Fringe Festival in September. We are so excited to be contributing one of the few Fringe programs geared specifically for kids and families! All performances will take place in a popular, ADA-accessible, neighborhood child and family enrichment center called Nest (located at 1301 Locust Street).
