This is what a Bounce/Vogue Ball looks like. Hosted by 1msqft and New Orleans Airlift, this legendary event, featuring internationally respected legends from both long-standing cultures, and an amazing array of visual and sound artists from New Orleans and around the world, was held at the Musée Conti Historical Wax Museum in the French Quarter. The night featured everything from chariot arrivals in a host of original vehicles (see Rally Under the Bridge for more!), to Tableaux Vivants frozen among the wax figures, to a 20 member community choir introducing the courts, to an 11 piece improvisational waltz orchestra, to 350 hand made original masks, to a human-sized swinging chandelier and so, so much more. Dozens of artists collaborated to make this event an overwhelming expression of talent and passion. The New Orleans Airlift is busy adding this and other new projects to our website, where you will soon find a list of all the awesome artists involved so you can look them up and adore them at your leisure. www.neworleansairlift.org

"It’s just like something that crawls in your ear and just goes down to your feet and just comes back up like a little chill, you know how you catch a little chill?" - K Gunna

"It just lifts you up, it’s bigger than you…we’re not just a bunch of silly queens running around and spinning to the count of 8 and dropping ourselves on the floor. We’re artists in motion, we’re poetry in motion, it’s actually beautiful to see." - Jack Mizrahi

Every year in June, a brave group of daredevils in the city of Alesund, Norway stack up hundreds of wood pallets to a height of over 130 feet, which they then light on fire in celebration of Midsummer and John the Baptist’s birthday.

Norway: where they build monuments and burn them because metal.
