Retro Factory Presents VOULEZ-VOUS? 
An homage to the indulgent, decadent and legendary Moulin Rouge

LONG ISLAND CITY - “After the success of 1983, we can’t wait to transport our guests to the famed Moulin Rouge,” says Carlos Armesto, Producing Artistic Director of Theatre C. “The Moulin Rouge was a safe haven for fun and abandon, where people of all walks of life could come to revel, dance and express their truest self. We want to create that same place of wonder and inclusion in our warehouse in Long Island City,” he says. Co-producer Daniel Nardicio lauded the RETRO FACTORY team saying, “These guys know how to throw a party. We couldn’t be happier to be partnering up with them again.”

Come deliciously decked out in Belle Epoque-inspired fashions and dance the night away in our 12,000- square-foot, multi-purpose gallery that will become the Moulin Rouge, as designed by our designers Frank Oliva(Oklahoma!) and Andrew Garvis. Experience flashmob-style recreations of dance numbers from the famed film by Baz Luhrman, choreographed by Mark Myars (My Fail Lady, The Cher Show), co-choreographer with Chris Gattelli (An American in Paris, The Cher Show), Breton Tyner-Bryan (Alvin Ailey), Omar Nieves Delgado (The Guthrie’s West Side Story), Elisabetta Spuria and Brinda Guha! The visuals and performances harken thoughts of THE DONKEY SHOW and HERE LIES LOVE.

Hear music spanning the eras spun by Queer DJ Bright Light Bright Light from Club Cumming. Partygoers will be greeted by an opulent champagne sculpture and can partake in intimate one-on-one experiences guided by the band of mischievous minions lead by opera director Raymond Zilberberg (Tosca at Loft Opera). Hosts for this party will include three of New York’s Queer Voices/Influencers Zach JobChad Ryan, and Chris Costa. They will be alongside the main provocateuse; the illustrious and talented Drag Star: Sucia

Voulez-Vous? Do you want? You know you do!

Belle Epoque attire and attitude strongly encouraged!

Retro Factory Presents REVISIT:1983 @ Bedlam

Relive the magic of our inaugural Retro Factory pride party and REVISIT: 1983

East Village, Manhattan - Theatre C, Zach Job, Chad Ryan, and Jason Barker in association with Daniel Nardicio Productions and Long Island CIty Artists, Inc., have come together to create a new series of retro-themed dance parties called RETRO FACTORY. The past smashes into the present, in this series that brings long-ago eras (and not so distant ones) into an all-night-into-morning affair. The night will be filled with with surprise immersive live performances and visuals in the style of The Donkey Show and Here Lies Love. The capsule RETRO FACTORY events will take place at Daniel Nardicio's Bedlam in  the East Village and will give you a taste of our larger events in our Long Island City warehouse location and give you a peek into what we have in store for our next large scale event.

We #FlashbackFriday to "1983" - an homage to the legendary gay dance party held at The Pyramid Club in the East Village until 2011. This is an 80's party reimagined from a gay perspective, and encompassing the grit and sex appeal of the east village.

“1983” Pride 2017

Our first event set out to create something missing in New York City nightlife: A space for queer people of every demographic that could be celebrated and who could witness their story reinterpreted through dance and a party with a throw back twist. 1983 was a huge success and turned into quite the amazing and inspiring night!! We got to participate in and celebrate queer art made by queer artists. It was something we at Retro Factory are immensely proud of and will strive to continue to produce.
