Dissilience Brooklyn is for everyone who loves everything out of the box and will be held at the RabbitHole Gallerylocated in the heart of the dumbo district under the Manhattan bridge. The show focuses on the process of uninhibited art, distinct materials, the empowerment of women in the creative industry and the diversity of our coterie. there will be an eclectic group of 10 mixed-media female artists and performers.

The event will also be a fundraiser for A FREE BIRD, a non-profit organization providing art programs to kids fighting cancerProceeds from Dissilience Brooklyn will be donated to Free Bird.

Miss vanilla’s mission on this planet is clear: build, grow, progress and create.she is a musican, producer, dj, radio host, and designer - set to stun. Her music and her heart are deep, her dj sets are hi-impact and possess a loving authority that comes from years spent participating in some of the most cherished parties around new york city through the late 80s and 90s. Her show on underground quality radio “in my house” is a rare sonic treat, and provides the perfect platform to share her selections from beloved musical eras gone-by,and push new talent up from the underground, into the light.

Vanilla will be creating and performing a sound experience with organic and electronic instruments. Reflecting on 4 decades of underground dance music and subculture, which she absorbed through radio waves and dance floors. She brings a familiar yet forward and avant-garde perspective.


The Duchess is a story teller, and her preferred medium is music. She spinstales of love & loss: uncensored and full of all the feels, with a touch of south london humor - naturally. Her early years spenting strutting around the fashion and drag circuits in london led her to leap across the atlantic where she found a true home in the underground dance community of new york; hosting & promoting parties for i love vinyl, and spreading her own message of love through her bi-monthly radio show “shameless love”, on bel-air radio. Expect to laugh, cry, elevate, and commune during her sets. Also expect her to come down from the dj booth and ask you if you would like to dance? Or if you would like another drink? Or if you are having the time of your life yet?
