Witness the epitome of dangerous female seductiveness, with her iconic Dance of the Seven Veils.
Immortalised by Oscar Wilde, and made memorable in Richard Strauss's Opera.
"No longer was she merely the dancing-girl who extorts a cry of lust and concupiscence from an old man by the lascivious contortions of her body;
who breaks the will, masters the mind of a King by the spectacle of her quivering bosoms, heaving belly and tossing thighs;
she was now revealed in a sense as the symbolic incarnation of world-old Vice,
the goddess of immortal Hysteria,
the Curse of Beauty supreme above all other beauties by the cataleptic spasm that stirs her flesh and steels her muscles,
- a monstrous Beast of the Apocalypse, indifferent, irresponsible, insensible, poisoning"
- Huysmans À rebours - Toni Bentley (2002) Sisters of Salome: 24
Harzest Mag describes the event as “a room full of friendly people, an appreciation for art, beautiful models, unreal costumes and a truck load of fun times”
