Dante’s Infernal Journal With Michael deMeng
Optional Workshop With Andrea Matus deMeng – Hell-Oh Kitties: Portraits of Precocious Pets in Purgatory
February 6-12, 2022
Once upon a time, ole Dante took a little stroll with a celestial pal Virgil, who took him on a little tour into the Nine rings of the Underworld: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud, and finally Treachery. For Dante, this was a pretty good deal; he could check out Hades without checkin’ for good…cuz no one really wants that. So, it seemed to me that he might want to keep tabs on his little meandering downward, and with this in mind, a workshop idea was formed. But where in the world could someone explore strange magical, otherworldly realms filled with saints and sinners? Well New Orleans, of course.
DISCO INFERNO 2ND LINE PARADE
There is no better city than New Orleans for devilish revelry, so put on your best devilish duds or sinful suits as we dance through the French Quarter with our own 2nd Line Parade. Our Disco Inferno will be marching with the Panorama Brass Band throughout the French Quarter. YES… that’s right! Our own parade!!!
