Bedlam brings Cirque du so gay [photos]

The most original party crew in town did it yet again on Saturday. This time, the Bedlam clan of artists and madmen threw down a circus theme like no other dance party in town at Jungle.

In their ongoing mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new gay Atlanta night lifeforms and to boldly go where no ATLiens have gone before, Bedlam brought dance beats with twists of performance art, silks, aerial acts (photo), pole dancing and more.

With performances by artists in multiple disciplines, the night of cabaret, burlesque and dance with costumed partygoers went down in the annals as just the latest one of a kind evening from Bedlam. This year alone, we’ve already seen their WackedOut BlackOut, Glitter & Fur and their ongoing weekly singing competition Sing For Your Life.

Speaking of which, the SFYL Top 4 Semi-finals take place on Thursday this week before the big March 28 finale for the win. They’re busy and serious about their fun. Even before Sing For Your Life ends, 1 Dazzling Evening goes down on March 27 with a preview of things to come at the W Midtown’s Pond Room, too.
