Creative Coworking Partners with Fierce Productions for Bi-Monthly “Parlor” Event at Historic Colvin House

Creative Coworking announces its new, event series, “The Parlor,” presented in partnership with Fierce Productions. On Fridays, April 6June 1August 3October 5December 7, The Parlor presents interactive performances of dance, music, and theatre. Set in the historic Colvin House, The Parlor is a variety show inspired by the salons de Paris of the 1800s. A salon is defined as a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and expand the knowledge of the participants through conversation.

Bimonthly, on the first Friday of the month, guests will be entertained by opera singers, Shakespearean actors, musicians and more. Every performance will feature a different lineup of performers, uniquely curated and based on a theme. This month’s theme is Love Conquers All and features acrobatic dancers, an acapella vocal trio and Beatrice P. Francis, ghost and stand up comedian.

While there is no strict dress code, guests are encouraged to take advantage of the setting and dress in their finest accessories, suits, and gowns! It’s Fridaynight in a mansion – maybe it’s time to bust out that old prom dress or your favorite hat? Signature cocktails, wine and heavy appetizers will be served in abundance inspired by the art of the evening.
