Come out to 311 W.Madison for PROM NOIR presented by WDLY
on Saturday February 15, 2020.
This time around we will be throwing a PROM. The theme will be flanked by
its common tropes –– backdrops, prom king and queens or king and kings etc. and so forth,
punch bowls, affection, unbridled nervousness and joy, semi-formal attire –– yet we want to continue
In the tradition of questioning and disruption –– so please feel free to bring your vision and creativity to the event.
PROM NOIR considers black intimacies catalyzed by
Black History Month and Valentine’s Day with regard to
representation, intimacy, and community –– we will collectively listen, dance, observe, and reflect on approaches to love. Really let’s have fun come out in your prom attire from any era, it is important to see how love shows up. The event is a collaboration with the 311 staff
And its “prom committee”. We want to explore films like Love Jones and Poetic Justice where
other art forms are explored in the space of cinema to display the trials and tribulations
Of love –– the process of working through desire.
The event will feature:
DJ Omnibud , the soundtrack
@ihenryphotoproject, keeping your peepers stimulated
311 Chef Moon, keeping you satiated
Teri Henderson + Malcolm Lomax + Remody Celeste, the architects
YOU + your prom images of old sent to the WDLY team via social media
Details including the raffle, menu, cocktails, and further entertainment will be available soon.
Please come out and share in the love.
