A Night To Re­mem­ber

“Dress code is el­e­gant, glam­orous, orig­i­nal,” said the invitation. Hilda Hoy raided her closet to at­tend Salon K Privé, an un­for­get­table night of per­for­mances and cham­pagne.

An un­for­get­table and mys­te­ri­ous night of per­for­mances and ev­er­flow­ing cham­pagne at Salon K Privé.

Imag­ine this scene: you ar­rive at a turn-of-the-cen­tury build­ing tucked away in Berlin’s west end, fol­low­ing the mys­te­ri­ous ad­dress you re­ceived by email just yes­ter­day. An im­pos­ing fig­ure in bondage gear and tow­er­ing stiletto boots di­rects you to the creak­ing, an­cient el­e­va­tor with the words, “Fourth floor.” Up­stairs, the scent of in­cense wafts over the thresh­old to a grandiose pri­vate apart­ment. As your smil­ing host­ess greets you, it’s best to leave your in­hi­bi­tions here at the door along with your coat, for this will be a night to re­mem­ber. Wel­come to Salon K Privé. What awaits is an evening some­where be­tween cabaret and cir­cus, per­for­mance art and con­cert, din­ner party and ad­ven­ture. It’s im­pos­si­ble to say what will be more mem­o­rable: the el­e­gant at­mos­phere charged with se­duc­tion and mys­tery, styled after the deca­dent sa­lons of the 1920s, or the top-notch per­form­ers, which in­clude vet­er­ans of Cirque du Soleil, dancers from some of the most renowned bal­let and mod­ern dance com­pa­nies in the world, ac­tors, singers, and ac­ro­bats. The ques­tion is: are you ready to give your­self over to the un­ex­pected? Sip the flute of cham­pagne handed to you by a man in a tuxedo and top hat and the an­swer is, of course, yes. Born out of a de­sire to move the per­former off the dis­tant, im­per­sonal stage and into an in­ti­mate at­mos­phere, Salon K Privé evenings en­velop their au­di­ence in mys­tery, song, po­etry, cos­tumes and ever-flow­ing cham­pagne. Per­for­mances are in­ter­spersed with in­ter­ludes for rounds of play­ful, tan­ta­liz­ing food and drink and the chance to min­gle with the other guests, though in a sense, ev­ery mo­ment and ev­ery in­ter­ac­tion of the evening is part of the per­for­mance, each at­tendee a part of the show. What role will you play? Only one way to find out.
