ECSTATIC LIGHT: TODAY IS THE DAY FOUNDATION’S 3RD ANNUAL BENEFIT AND AUCTION

A huge thank you to the TODAY IS THE DAY Foundation for such a great party on Thursday night at the Jane Hotel Ballroom! Noritoshi and his wonderful team orchestrated an incredible showcase of visual arts alongside Japanese cultural heritage to raise money for the 14+ Foundation and Chipakata Children’s Academy Foundation, with proceeds from the night going towards the creation of an art retreat program for children in Fukushima.

The lavish design of The Jane Hotel Ballroom with the velvetine curtains and smooth, cigar smoking, Bohemian interior provided a perfect backdrop for Noritoshi’s vision of “transformation through consciousness.”

Noritioshi has helped bring together an army of artistic talent, and the support shown at Thursday’s Benefit was testament to how far they have come. TODAY IS THE DAY is an expanding organisation and deserves our support!

Highllight of the night was undoubtedly the eerie silhouetted performance by New Optimism (with Miho Hatari from Cibo Matto!) in a Macbeth-meets-Lady Gaga visual orgy of panting bodies, twisting and pulsating to the digital sounds of “King of Monster.” The performance was like witnessing an interpretive production of Gladiator by Alexander McQueen and it was amazing!

See you next year, TITD!
