Curated with Dances of Vice devotees in mind, Dark Venus pays homage to the sexual deviants of yesteryear with an evening of sado-sensual parlour games celebrating the fetish culture and aesthetics of the early 20th century.
Whether you're a blushing maid, a lustful rapscallion, a cruel femme fatale, or one who serves them, we invite guests to draw inspiration from BDSM history and vintage erotica to fulfill a vision of decadent depravity worthy of John Willie and Bernard Montorgueil's wicked imaginations.
For the curious and budding initiate, we offer an hour-long salon prior to the play party to discuss dungeon etiquette, best practices and basic techniques in a brief introduction to BDSM. All genders and orientations welcome.
Our venue is a private black box theater in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Address is disclosed to ticket-holders only.
