Painted, Dark and Divine: The 2017 Summer Debauchery Ball-Winter Baby's Revenge

Painted, Dark and Divine: The 2017 Summer Debauchery Ball-Winter Baby's Revenge

Created by Chicago artist, Khari B a/k/a Discopoet with sounds provided by DJ Bill Will and Craig Alexander, The Debauchery Ball, Winter Babies Revenge is an AfroFuturistic, fetish-themed summer party held every summer.   This year’s theme was “Painted, Dark and Divine”.   The WBR encourages patrons to delve deeply into themselves and pull out that fearless, sensual, uninhibited divine being that resides within and adorn accordingly.   In Khari’s own words, this production is part of a continued mission to inspire, educate and empower audiences as to their own greatness while adding to the spectrum of how the art can be expressed over multiple mediums for a more lasting experience.   The entire event is a tasteful, erotically themed event where music, movement, art and spirituality are synergized for a most memorable event.
