VELVET (Norwegian Breakaway)
Velvet is a nightclub and a state of mind – a fantasy. Inspired by Studio 54, a club famous for its wild parties and hedonism but also for its culture of acceptance – blind to color, creed, class, gender, size, shape, sexuality. Velvet is a celebration of that freedom. It is a party, it’s dangerous, it’s electrifying, and it’s exhilarating disco soundtrack never lets up from the opening moment. Each performance invites the audience into an intoxicating glitter ball world where the performers and the audience walk the fine line between the romantic and the audacious. ‘VELVET’ is a fantastic sensory overload – funky, fresh, fun and sexy.
