2019: The Dreamer's Bal
THANKS TO ALL WHO CAME OUT! A few photos from Jerry Mann, Kevin Jackson, Bob Perkoski, Michael McFarland . . . More to Come!
The Dreamer's Bal Experience
Visitors will enter unique second-floor space of our hundred-year-old factory to find a dreamscape filled with larger-than-life artwork, including a bedroom that shrinks guests to ankle level and floating dreamboats that explore the idea of “what your bed becomes while you sleep” . . . climb aboard pirate ships, snuggle in a giant birds nest, let your dreams roar to life in a race car, or float amid the crowd in a hot air balloon.
Musical guests range from the intimate – Taylor Lamborn and Uno Lady perform solo – to the extravagant funk-focused New Orleans Style Jazz of Revolution Brass Band. We’ll also feature Gypsy-Jazz project Moustache Yourself, neo-soul groove project Nah Nah (think: Postmodern Jukebox) and, to make sure no one leaves before dancing the night away, the irresistible jams of DJ Byron SquareBiz Lee.
Performances will include dance offerings from Get Hep! Swing and Viva Dance Studio, plus the quirky roaming characters of Nerdy Dancers of the CLE, Fire and Light Performing Art, and Sam Novak, performance artist. Enjoy dazzling Aerial and Pole performance from the strong and sultry students of Be Studios/Be Fitness. Plus immersive meditation from Selfspace.
Libations, Little Bites, and Other Partnerships We’re thrilled to present a range of custom cocktails from our friends at Watershed Distillery, plus new flavors and classic favorites from Platform Beer.
And we couldn’t be happier to announce a new partnership with Ohio City Galley, the foodhall-meets-incubator bringing offerings from all four kitchens: Poca, Sauce the City, Tinman, and The Rice Shop! Enjoy sweets from Pierre’s and Sweet Costo, and commemorate the evening with a special snapshot from the themed photobooth built by Liza Sue Productions.
Multimedia Installations include projections by Kevin Jackson and Ross Bochnek, the Artwork of Amanda Nyx, Michael McFarland, John Kasunich, Tom Stoll, Paige Knoefel, Ian Keating-Mullaney, Adam Patterson, Ryan Kinney, and many more talented artists who work every week with The Ingeneers.
Attendees should plan to wear “the costume of their dreams” . . . whether dreamwear means the fantastical trappings of knights and princesses and fairies, the Sandman’s ensemble or garb of a monster under the bed, or even cozy PJ’s! We’d love you to consider the environment in creating your costume – visit our friends from Upcycle Parts Shop and mention “Ingenuity Dreamer’s Bal” for a special discount!All ticket sales support Ingenuity Cleveland’s low-cost, accessible year-round community programming!
