Dream Reservoir: A Night at the Surrealist Hotel
Join us for a very special evening of most unusual revelations…
Be transported to a world inspired by the Surrealists of 1920’s and 30’s Paris and New York at this other-worldly, historically inspired, intoxicatingly beautiful, one-of-a-kind art event created exclusively for the Atlas Obscura Society.
Enter the charming Roger Smith Hotel, built in the early 20th century as a traveler’s bastion of class and creativity. You’ll begin in the stunning penthouse that Buckminster Fuller once resided for a spell of inspiration and rest where you’ll enjoy complimentary Surrealist cocktails, cabaret-style musical acts, roving performance art, a Surrealist photobooth, and visionary film and poetry readings. When your fancy strikes you, you’re invited to have your subconscious read by a sultry fortune teller and be transported to one of the hotel rooms turned Surrealist portals for a secret performance.
Inspired by the Surrealist and Dada movements of the 1920s and ’30s, this most unusual evening embraces the wonder, magic, and terror of the human subconscious in a luxuriously enchanting and other-worldly experience. Performance and immersive artworks pay homage to Dali, Magritte, and other Surrealist greats in a playful integration of a pantheon of otherworldly performing artists. Emerging in the desolate aftermath of WWI, Surrealism offered a vision full of eros, violence, dreams, anxiety, and splendor that powerfully continues and evolves today. Join us to celebrate the magical strangeness of the Surrealist vision at this dazzlingly transportive evening.
