CURIO – DOXA’s Fall Fundraiser
7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
700 Hamilton Street
Curio is a three-ring circus of oddities and strangeness, a dark carnival of film, fair ground food, and side show fare. The word itself, a diminutive of curiosity, implies a collection of peculiar objects and experiences. A fitting definition for an evening devoted to plumbing the depths of human inquisitiveness. Combining elements of grand guignol freak show, and penny dreadfuls with accordion-fueled melancholia, the evening will feature roaming performers prowling the room and fabulous silent auction items.
This curlicue of serendipitous happenings includes a roving performance by Camilo the Magician (the inspiration of the Said the Whale song). Camilio’s close up magic upends perception with acts of consummate prestidigitation. Camilo embodies the traditional approach of magicians like Ricky Jay or the illusionist Max Malini.
It’s reality with a twist.
Curio will feature films, silent auction items with restaurant gift certificates, fashion, artwork and tickets to great cultural events for guests to bid on.
Tickets: $25 (includes canapes and one complimentary drink)
