Saturday, December 31, 2011 at Epic Event Center
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn (December 7, 2011) - This New Year’s Eve, we invite you to dance upon the dividing line between reality and fantasy. Limited only by the boundaries of your imagination, you will enter the surreal world of Mystique 2012: Le Cirque at Epic Event Center. An enchanting and colorful realm awaits where the cares and concerns of the past vanish as the beat captivates and invites. This avant-garde event will celebrate the grace and dexterity of the human form through awe inspiring performances as revelers are drawn to the dance floor in celebration of the New Year to come. Raise your glass in communion with your neighbor as you admire the fluid movements and poetic beauty of le cirque.
Death defying acts of dexterity set against the backdrop of splendor and intrigue define this year’s event. Year after year, this 21+ New Year’s bash - from the producers of last year’s well received masquerade ball “A Masked Affair” - has proven itself to be the premier New Year’s Eve party in Minneapolis. Guests will enjoy an over-the-top fashion show produced by Ignite Models, featuring looks from CostumeRentals, a combined project of the Guthrie Theater and The Children's Theatre Company. Runway looks will be styled by Secrets Fashion Agency with hair and make-up provided by Rocco Altobelli Salon and Day Spas. Host for the evening will be style writer and fashionista Joan Erakit, creator of the Brown Girl Files. Spectators will be amazed by the cirque performances presented throughout the evening by the world-renowned Circus Juventas and Cirque DuVolo. The event will take place at Epic Event Center, conveniently located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, and it promises to be the most unique and exciting New Year's Eve bash in the Twin Cities.
