KABINET w/ Scorpia

Jun 12 2010 9:00 pm
Jun 13 2010 1:00 am

Imagine... it is a cold night in the Japanese countryside and you find yourself walking to a bench to find a woman weeping into a bit of cloth. Being the caring person that you are, you stop. You inquire as to the woman's woes and are deeply moved by her response. She gazes at you with liquid eyes and intimates that her lover has left her in this flurry of snow and pain to fend for herself. Concerned, you sit and offer your most colorful description of the nature of fate and the stupidity of fickle and blind men. She clings to you, her arms sliding over your shoulders as if to block out the cold.

You almost miss the blade that she has formed to her tongue as it glides across your neck... sealing your fate.

Meet the KUNOICHI. The female ninjas. As deadly... if not moreso... than their male counterparts, they are the masters of their craft and are ninjas the likes of which even the most stalwart opponent dare not offend.

Lady Scorpia is such a ninja and her lethal skillz draw you in to such an extent that your ultimate destination is of no moment, and all that matters is the beauty that lures you to ecstasy...


We're back!

On rare evenings, the dust and shadows are parted and the Kabinet Theatre is unlocked. On Saturday June 12th, the Wandering Marionettes invite you to experience the world within. The creatures and toys of the Kabinet Theatre have been tirelessly creating mischief that will tickle your imagination and leave you swooning. Let us carry you away to a world you can only imagine. Come dance. Come play.

Headlining the evening are your hosts, THE WANDERING MARIONETTES, interspersing the night with on and offstage performances including new dance, aerial, interactive theatre pieces and characters... This month join us and take part in the tale of THE TWIN, our spotlight character of the month. Read more »

If you can't make it out OR want to help support the temple with a larger donation, please visit our donate page:

* Since 2000, the Temple has been a place for catharsis, remembrance, and rebirth, offering Burning Man participants a physical reminder to embrace change.

Drawing its inspiration from canyons carved over time by wind and water, the Temple of Flux rises from the desert floor as a series of gracefull double-curved walls. Their wide, heavy bases taper as they ascend, leading the eye from a solid urban foundation to an increasingly fragmented upper edge as these long angles reach to the sky.

The Temple is a collaborative effort of three long-time community artists; Rebecca Anders, Jess Hobbs, and Peter Kimelman; along with numerous Burning Man communities and friends.
We have a huge range of experience and backgrounds, with one unifying vision: creating awe-inspiring, memorable art that emerges from the community and influences change.

Please be quiet in the neighborhood, respect your surroundings, and do not post to lists. Read more »

Opulent Temple goes La La with an underground fundraiser in the City of Angels (in association with Pantheon)

Taking our hopes for 2010 on tour, we'll be coming south to bring the Opulent beats and vibe at a proper underground spot on the west side. Combining our talents with some of LA's finest, we'll be popping some serious beat induced synergy.

(but all you other photographers, feel free to bring your camera)


Area 33 has changed to a private event space that requires attendees RSVP to be on the 'member's list' for the night. To get on the members list for the night you just simply need to buy a pre-sale. No tickets can be sold at the door. There are 2 tiers of pre-sale now. $15 general admission or $40 includes admission and free cocktails all night long. We know $40 sounds high at first, but do the math for this all inclusive deal, and you'll see it's actually a great deal!

Thanks for rolling with us as we've adapted to circumstance on this fundraiser. Since this is now a pre-sale only event, if you get a pre-sale and then end up not being able to - we will refund your ticket price. We look forward to seeing every Saturday!

9pm-6am, 21+
