The Duality Kiki Ball,
22. February

Spilles: Sat 22. Feb

The first Vogue Ball at Dansens Hus!

The dance form of voguing has now broken through in Norway, and interest elsewhere in Europe has exploded in recent years. The vogue and ballroom culture can be traced back to the LGBTQ+ community in New York in the 1930s, but first appeared in popular culture in the documentary film Paris is Burning in 1991. The American drama TV series Pose from 2018, which can be seen on HBO Nordic and Netflix, shows the 1980s Vogue community in New York, and has been highly acclaimed.

We and Norway’s vogue house mother Cassandra are invited to an evening with the atmosphere of a fashion show, beauty pageant, dance battle and underground nightclub.

The KiKi scene in the vogue and ballroom world was originally for young people who were not allowed into the underground clubs in which vogue balls were initially held. A KiKi Ball works like any other vogue ball, with categories including dance, runway, fashion, design, face, realness, etc., but the threshold for who can organise and participate in a KiKi tends to be somewhat more relaxed. Having said that, the KiKi scene has become huge in Europe in recent years, and as much effort is involved in the preparations as for a major ball. ‘Let’s have a KiKi!’ is a common expression in the ballroom community, and it says a lot about what a KiKi ball is: it’s about enjoyment, being free and having fun together!

This event is OTA (Open To All) and there is no dress code for the audience. A vogue ball is a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community, and everyone is welcome to come as they are, or as who they would like to be this evening.

Participants are judged in 18 different categories, which are all based on the number 2 or duality.
