A bawdy CAA party at Sundance shocks guests, including clients


www.latimes.com

For decades, CAA has carefully maintained a reputation as Hollywood's most meticulous talent firm, but CAA's leave-nothing-to-chance attention to decorum vanished in that Bacchanalian blizzard on the snowy streets of this mountain resort.

Some CAA clients found the party so shocking that they said it made them embarrassed to be associated with the agency.

"The performance by Simon Hammerstein's The Act LV was more explicit than intended," CAA said in a statement.

According to a brief Wiki description:


The Sundance Film Festival, a program of the Sundance Institute, is an American film festival that takes place annually in Utah. With 46,731 attendees in 2012, it is one of the largest independent film festivals in the United States.


This time, something would seem to have gone quite wrong with the entertainment. How? Well it appears they enlisted one of the most 'adult' entertainment acts from a town known for pushing the very edges of legal 'Adult' entertainment. Even in Las Vegas, theirs is described by some as pushing the line between performance art and obscenity.

Naturally, that doesn't raise much concern when it's playing in a private showing at the Pallazo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Those who attend know what they are going to see and experience in the show. It would seem that was not the case for the attendees of the Sundance Festival in Utah. Of all places to have such an act perform to an unsuspecting crowd, they picked a doozy.

There are even descriptions in the primary article of an Alice in Wonderland look-alike performing an x-rated level act on the Rabbit of the same story while they moved among the crowd. The interactive nature of their show is also known as a signature of the performance. I'm surprised someone booking them for an event would be so unaware of their nature.

In a world where the basic concept of morality is the punch line to jokes as often as not and values are simply old fashioned things of past generations, the comments made by those who were there for this are telling, as the article details. If the people at a festival such as this were so deeply offended, it must have been quite a show. Remember when George Carlin's "Seven Dirty Words" was considered scandalous? Oh the old days...so innocent.

You just don't hear the word 'bawdy' used much nowadays.
It's so beautifully Shakespearean.
Star for revival of bawdy!

They were crude ...they intruded upon peoples sensibilities. In my book...some occurrences in life are private and do not belong at a public gathering.

Let's just face it...some people have no class...and they probably never will.

Somehow bawdy behavior in UTAH seems out of place; but I can assure you that our SAG/AFTRA after after party for the Oscars this Sunday; the female and male bodies of our members will be openly on display after the Margarita bowl is only 1/2 down. Our parties in Tamalewood make LA parties seem almost staid.

If you plan to attend; check your pistols and inhibitions at the door. We embody the Wild Wild West here in Q.

And rumor has it that the New Orleans SAG-AFTRA parties make NM look almost prim and proper.

I was just on the set of a Steven Seagal film that if it's not rated X it should be.

I'm ashamed to be the same species as anyone in hollywood. I can understand why the good Lord would want a cleansing of all our trash. Take the bankers, lawyers and politicians in one go. Take their millions and give it to the dying kids in detroit.

Thanks for the heads up on a new movie.


The SAG party sounds interesting. I'm no prude and would probably enjoy being at what you're describing. What surprised me about this story was reading the comments and quotes from the people who were there. It sounds like your coming example is one where everyone pretty much knows what they're getting by going, where this one was anything but by the reactions. It seems a rather harsh thing to drop on people by surprise.

Did anyone think my post regarding the party's organizers also host parties for Mattel which was mentioned in the above linked articles was off topic? I linked to wacked out toys because I believe they me the results of parties inspiration hosted by those guys? Well DontTreadOnMe sure does. Funny he didnt take away my two stars.p

It was my bad I think... I chose forums poorly as a mod helpfully noted in moving it to a place more fitting for the topic. That probably brought a bit more focus than might otherwise have been.

The Act for a toy company party is interesting. I think it worked better when business and sex were kept entirely separate, personally. As one example noted in the thread, some parties are simply known for a wild side and par for the course but I'd think it crosses lines when all involved aren't at least passively approving ahead of time and expecting that tone to the event.

Who wants to see blatant sexual performances among such mixed company? It strikes me as what a few in the organizing group really wanted to see for personal interest and just figured everyone else would like it or deal with it. I'm not sure I'd ever return to an event that went like this one so long as those same organizers had anything to do with it. The saying "What do you do to top that?" brings a little shiver of trying to imagine what WOULD top it?

I read about this earlier & couldn't stop laughing. The "Alice in Wonderland" description sort of reminded me of this Nubian-like queen on stage during fetish ball that I briefly attended in the late 90s.

I should have known better before I paid the entrance fee and stepped into a warehouse full of people wearing BDSM attire while I was decked out in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers.

AWKWARD! I'm guessing there are some folks who are now thinking, "I should have known better" as well.
