Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, The Gristle Gals and Ascential Dance Theatre Colorado cordially invite music lovers, dance aficionados, art enthusiasts, fashion devotees and the Steampunk community to examine five characters fall victim to the effects of the world they occupy.

Rustle and Guilda are two individually proficient con-artists with colorful pasts who habitually scam their way through life. The Spinster is a talented, yet widowed seamstress whose addictions and broken heart leave her embittered and destructive. Angel and Dread are two archetypes and their allegiance to good and evil are neither permanent nor clearly defined.

Audiences will be treated to original sights and sounds as our characters manipulate love, destroy reality and discover themselves.

You are currently being offered a performance experience populated by professional dancers, live musicians, designers, and visual artists . Each ensemble is talented and virtuoso in their own right and promisingly viral as a collective. The Gristle Gals and Ascential Dance Theatre Colorado offer their artistic prowess for what is guaranteed to be a unique, unforgettable, and provocative evening.

Join us and enjoy the 'show.'
