Acrobatics & Ballet

The Homeless People put on an amazing show in the Ice Cage the weekend after Gypsy Camp – including ballet-acrobatics, foot-stomping accordion & violin duets, saw-twanging, and intense vocals.

We can’t wait to see what they’ve got going for Tabor!

Reporting from the Front Line…

Gypsy Camp had its kinks (a lot of them…) but we made it through and had a blast. Dancers prancing around fires, men getting arrested right out of the ocean water, helicopters buzzing above, bouzouki notes soaring, glasses tipping, world cup fans freaking the f*ck out around the big screen, and of course, fantastic weather.

Zooey England flew into town to help us prep with  parties, paint, and general bohemian street cred.

The night before camp we had our [Burdel Dali Presents] Gypsy Camp Pre-party, full of beautiful people and their beautiful dance moves.

We set off for Camp, ready for anything!

Stage building, falling into holes, anti-climaxes, and what-have-you…

After day-one and camp set-up, we drove back to the lower east side to party!

Day two of camp was hoppin’! Eight bands & performers canceled on us at the last second, but everyone still kept the music and the movement alive.

Of course it was world cup, so there was a lot of soccer enthusiasm going on.

Bastet Belly Dance Troupe and Anna Leah led a workshop in the grass in addition to stellar performances (sharpened daggers and swords included), with the help of live music played by campers…

Unfortunately, with the focus on food, bands/dancers (many of whom bailed out), disco balls, and other exciting things, the most important element of “Gypsy” was lost this time around. While the entertainment aspect of the Camp did suffer, people had a great time… but no one walked away from this mini-fest with a better understanding of Gypsy culture.

For the Tabor fest in August, an enormous emphasis will be placed on Gypsy culture, the Roma human rights movements, Gypsy folk music and dance, etc. The criticisms aimed at this event have been heard loud and clear.  Burdel Dali will continue to represent and support the movement and focus our efforts on this fantastic opportunity to bring people together through song and dance!

See you at TABOR in August! xx

Gypsy Camp Ahoy! Pre-Party is in order…

The Thursday throw-down, and finally – a photo update!

We’ve had a few straight weeks of pure pleasantry – tribal dancers, confetti getting into Mishto’s laptop keyboard, great people who have been added to our phone directories for future folk-dancing/shot-taking, and inspiration to take this festive gathering to a new level.

Spring Fest Weekend!

Dhyana and Irina danced for us Thursday and Saturday, with Raya Brass Band.

That night we learned that BALKAN ROBOTS exist. Wowwww.

Sarah tearing apart the shot-selling competition! How can you say no to this face?

Thanks to all who came out – we’re about to get balkan-bananas again tomorrow night, so come out and forget about everything else for a few hours:

Thursday night – come learn something about human anatomy & shake yo’ shit!

[Burdel Dali Presents] Gypsy Punk Trans-Global Dance Party!

THURSDAY NIGHT! Bands on both levels of the club will get you shakin before Mishto & Raphlex teach you something about rhythm, cultural diffusion, and human anatomy…

Come stomp around to the trans-global tunes and immigrant anthems, have some hookah and a gypsy burger, and get NEEDLESSLY PASSIONATE! It’ll be hard to out-do last week, but we can try…
