Saskia Ozol Eubanks
Jane LaFarge Hamill

Despite mother nature’s efforts, awesome is not hard to come by at Gowanus Ballroom. On January 26th, we will prove that fact yet again, hosting a Save the Gowanus Ballroom extravaganza with all the proceeds going to keep our art and performance space alive. You’ve helped us survive the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, but we’re not out of the woods yet.
Come on out to show your support, help us keep the lights on, and have some good old fashioned fun. We’ll be joined by some amazing performers, including Morgan O’Kane, Imaginary Weapons, Big Volcano, Matthew Silver the Great Performer, and others, extreme aerialists, silliness, dirtiness, food, drink, and of course, fire. As a bonus, this iteration of the Save Gowanus Ballroom series will double as a post-event celebration for a certain group of shopping cart-wielding, costume-wearing, race-running friends. If you know what we mean…then you know what we mean. And be sure to watch your head as shopping carts fly through the air courtesy of our homemade Cart-A-Pult.
