updated-date-and-timeThe Decadent Gathering Tea Party is a fundraising celebration of filmmaker Amir George’s most recent project, a feature length movie entitled Decadent Asylum. Decadent Asylum is an experimental fairy tale in eight parts. A mundane doorman is transported through a broken door that leads him to metaphysical dimensions where he is put through practices of self-alchemy.

This unique event breaks out of the normal fundraising mould, giving audiences a taste of the film’s zeitgeist and themes with inventive games, a chance to take home the surreal props used in Decadent Asylum, and a glimpse into the world of the film with actors from the movie acting as hosts in a contemporary take on a Mad Hatter tea party. Central to the proceedings is the communal act of drinking tea — the Decadent Gathering Tea Party brings the arts community together over tea in celebration of new work.
