The Soiled Dove Experience
From The Vau de Vire Society, co-creators of the world-renowned Edwardian Ball, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Phantasm Halloween, New Bohemia NYE and a decade of The Bay Area’s most creatively outrageous nightlife events, comes an immersive, circus-infused, scandalous and historic dinner-theater experience that will titillate your every sense. For 2019, The Soiled Dove graces Downtown Oakland September 20th, with shows every Friday and Saturday evenings, through December 7th…under Vau de Vire’s massive 12,000 sq. ft. circus tent, the Tortona Big Top!
Providing the musical accompaniment for The Soiled Dove is Jazz Mafia's Heaviest Feather - just voted "Best Band" in the annual "Best of the East Bay" poll. Fresh off a performance at the Kennedy Center in DC, the brass-heavy octet of Jazz Mafia veterans and rising stars is joined by a lineup of some of the West Coast's most talented vocalists. Led by musical director Adam Theis, dance/musical liaison Shaina Evoniuk, and vocalist Trance Thompson, Heaviest Feather's rollicking, theatrical approach makes them natural collaborators with The Vau De Vire Society.
Drexl will be providing quality crafted cocktails & professional bartenders, bringing people together to have good times and good drinks.
“Epic aerialists, circus and showgirl acts, a cracking live jazz big band with several amazing solo acts, luscious beauty and lascivious behavior all within the bounds of good taste…. And there is no real line between the audience and performers.“ - Mark Metz, Concious Dancer
"It's such a gift to have a fun, creative, professional and outrageous show in the Bay Area. It's an immersive experience with surprises and artistry that's over the top. It's a "must see" for San Francisco Bay Area hip and creative culture. And this year it's running through December so get your friends together to go see it and have a great time.” Debra Giusti, producer of Debra Recommends and Harmony Connects.
