THE SOILED DOVE

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. The Soiled Dove is a one-of-a-kind touring show that takes place under Vau de Vire’s massive 12,000 sq. ft. circus tent, the Tortona Big Top!

To enter The Soiled Dove, is to step back into another world, inspired by the Bay Area’s notorious Gold Rush & Barbary Coast era. A fully built-out 19th century outpost of decadence and delights, a replica of a 19th century Oakland saloon and dancehall, replete with all its characters and misfits. An evening filled, with decadent culinary creations served alongside world-renowned performances accompanied by a 10 piece live orchestra with surprise musical-guest cameos each evening.

In 2019, The Soiled Dove graced Downtown Oakland with shows every Friday and Saturday evening…under Vau de Vire’s massive 12,000 sq. ft. circus tent, the Tortona Big Top! Thank you to all who helped make it a circus! Stay tuned for details on our next season!

THE EDWARDIAN BALL

Well it certainly has been a most peculiar year. We are ever so grateful that we were able to celebrate Edwardian Ball’s 20th anniversary in January of 2020 before the world as we have known it ground to a halt. And while it is nearly certain that we will not be gathering in January 2021 in our typical fashion, we will most definitely not let a year slip by without some measure of Edwardian revelry. Please stay in touch on our mailing list and on our social channels as updates emerge!

ALL’S FAIRE IN LOVE AND GOREY

Nigh impossible to describe, but absolutely delightful to experience. The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, music, theatre, fashion, technology, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author and illustrator Edward Gorey.

Set in a re-imagined “Edwardian Era,” this multi-city, multi-media extravaganza has grown over the past TWENTY years from an underground club party into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, now operating with the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.

The Vau de Vire Society has co-produced the Ball for the past 15 years alongside Paradox Media and the founders, Rosin Coven.
