Welcome to VIBEGALA, a late-night odyssey sailing between a rockin' dance party and oxytocin-filled cozy cuddle hangout. The setting is a Berkeley Hills mansion with 3 stories and a hot tub, with plenty of space for quiet conversations out of the chaos. There will be a lineup of DJs and musicians, as well as snacks, tea, decks of uncomfortable questions, and a clothing-optional hot tub—bring a towel!
 
We encourage all attendees to participate in creating experiences.
- We invite flow arts, circus arts, storytelling, poetry reciting, live painting, acrobatics, body-painting, interactive art and theater. etc.
- Please bring wholesome food and drink to share. BYOB. No alcohol will be provided. Free gourmet tea served in a Chinese tea ceremony style by Tea Tribe / Om Shan Tea

Schedule

7:00pm  Doors open!
 
Main Floor
7:30-8pm   Opening ceremony to welcome us all into this space together. This group has never gotten together before and never will be again, what's it like to be here right now?
8:30-11pm   Graham Patzner of Whiskerman will kick us off on our journey with splendid, rapturous singing 
12-2am   DJ Eva Lygress will take us on an ecstatic dance journey featuring salacious sounds, textures, beats, and rhythms
 
Master Bedroom
8-9:30pm   Contact improv with Olivia. If you've ever wondered how to do contact improv, this is the place to learn the basics! Roll around the floor and find surfaces of connection with the people around you. Space limited!
10:30-12am   Aella is hosting a weird, experimental descent into dance hell where nobody looks good and grace doesn't matter. We'll start with some technical instruction for good dance basics and see how we can connect those basics to raw expression, and gradually morph into a full-blown, but very weird, dance thing. (This class is flexible; you can engage with it how you want, even if it's "lying still on the floor the entire time", and will probably be fun even if you are a good dancer). Space limited!

DRESS CODE

Wear what makes you feel great! If you're looking for a reason to go all out, lean into your sense of Dionysian excess. Think demigods in distress. Diogenes in drag. Tap into your alter ego as an olympian gone wild, a murderess sorceresses, or stoic warrior. Don't be shy with the crowns, chains, and robes. 
 
No shoes in the house! We go barefoot for maximum coziness.
