On a mostly deserted block at the bottom of Harlow Street, there is a gallery space within an old sprinkler factory where an alternative universe exists, if only for one night. The Sprinkler Factory is a rendezvous for the black magic masquerade of Cirque du Noir. Once you have arrived in your all black or creative black attire, you will be taken into a darkened room, hear ethereal music, and possibly be unsure of any expectations. You will be among masked seekers of mystery and possibly some skin-baring sparkle. Where else can you wear a new corset or top hat?
100% of the profits are generously donated to the creative community.
Cirque du Noir was voted #1 Fundraiser in Worcester by Worcester Business Journal.
Live art fusion, a silent art auction, live music, great food, sexy atmosphere—where steampunk could meet sultry French burlesque, futuristic robot or a guy in black Levis. For those unfamiliar, Cirque is an alternate reality of sorts, a night to transform, get all dressed up in feathers or just plain leather and Fryes. No matter what you are comfortable wearing or what circles you keep, Cirque du Noir offers intoxicating excitement, as long as you follow that one simple rule.
Pretense is out the window.
Everyone arrives on time in anticipation of watching, discovering and being a part of the unique experience.
Artists that donate accepted works valued at over $200 to the Art Auction receive a complimentary ticket.
Cirque du Noir was established nine years ago, emerging as an intimate group of 80 at Bocado. Quickly growing and taking on a life of its own, it now fills the gallery space at The Sprinkler Factory, which recently completed a gallery expansion with the help of Cirque du Noir, contributing almost 10K. With an exeptional business plan for creative arts programming, The Creative Hub is being developed now and their presence will fill a gap for people of all ages to explore creativity from student to professional levels, as well as provide new event space for the whole city.
Enjoy a night out that you won’t soon forget and know you support these 501(c)3s.
