Serendipity Is Back For One Night Only!
On October 17th, a fantastic 3,600 sq. ft. warehouse space in Downtown, LA will morph into the second installment of a lively enchanted forest offering an abundance of art, music, theatre, cuisine, and other noteworthy performance artists.

Surprise performances to be revealed later. This isn’t just a show- it’s an experience. Saturday, October 17, 8 p.m.- 2.a.m. Performance starts at 9 pm sharp. EVENT IS LOCATED IN A SECRET LOCATION DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES. Pre-sale priced admission is $35. Cuisine is included. Valet is available. (415) 407-8440.
Performance artists including aerial acrobats, dancers, poets and musicians, will take on character roles as the inhabitants of Fakouri’s lush garden oasis, intermingling with guests while showcasing their skills.
“We want to give our guests a wild ride, a magical experience to escape from the hum-drum of their every day cares,” says Fakouri. Earlier this year Fakouri and her production partners hosted a different themed event in the same space transformed by Fakouri’s design skills. Sweet Siamese, received rave reviews and drew guests from all over the City and State to an isolated section of Downtown. For the upcoming Serendipity event, Fakouri and her Treetop Productions partner, Alison Segura, have spun a new back-story, characters, costumes, props and artworks.
The imaginative theme of “Serendipity” explores the evolution of an antiquated society transformed by the enchanted forest. “The likes of a wolf in a top hat and vest coat, gossipy ladies of the lake, a day-dreaming trapeze artist, a ballerina, botanists, a masterful mistress of the spoken word and a puppeteer with magic powers to control others, dwell here,” says Segura. “The puppeteer is also a practical solution for a stage manager to keep performers on cue,” Segura adds.
While Serendipity’s performance acts are scripted and rehearsed, guests will also enjoy the happy chance to impromptu interact with characters and the environment. “The level of interaction is up to each individual guest. You can just relax and watch, intermingle and network with other guests, or become part of the experience. This is your playground to let your inner-child out to play” says Fakouri.
Both youthful treats like mounds of scrumptious desserts and adult drinks are in the offering. To purchase tickets and for more information please visit: www.treetopproductions.org. Go to www.maderadesign.org for information on the design house event location.
