Get out your harness for this one, piggies! One of the world’s preeminent producers of nightlife entertainment, The Saint at Large is known and respected for its infamous productions. The Black Party, its biggest event, is held every spring in New York City and is considered to be the ‘Daddy’ of all large circuit events. With more than 4,000 attendees, it remains one of the largest gay dance parties in the world. Well, you’re IN luck. The dates have been announced, and tickets for this year’s bash have officially been released for purchase. The Black Party 2018 steamrolls into its 39th year on April 21.
The Saint At Large exists in the space where music, dance and art collide. It’s an unapologetically sexy queer phenomenon with a cult following. Over its 39-year history, it has retained its reputation for cutting-edge innovation and staging. The Black Party has grown through many transformations in the NYC nightlife environment and continues to wow audiences with large-scale installations, theatrical staging and light shows, all set to a soundtrack by the best DJs from the international underground.
Underscoring the party’s forward momentum is the commissioning of New York City artist Gio Black Peter as this year’s Creative Director. A multimedia provocateur who’s built a formidable body of work resisting proscription and conformity, attendees can anticipate Gio’s eye-popping art, videos and performances to gleefully exploit this year’s theme, “PIGTOPIA: I Want to Break Free.”
In anticipation of the big event, Gio has released a very cheeky teaser video for PIGTOPIA, which is a twisted version of the #SatisfactionChallenge. You can check out the very naughty uncensored version of that here.
