2nd Annual Steampunk Carnivale set for Saturday, June 7

KNOXVILLE — The Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA), an artists’ colony on a 29-acre farm in Knoxville, Tennessee, is pleased to be a part of the second-annual Steampunk Carnivale, presented by Paulk + Co. The event will take place on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at 510 Williams Street. Due to popular demand, the event will be having longer hours and more kid-friendly events for families to enjoy.

Actors and performers from the Knoxville area will be reading Steampunk spins on classic tales, every hour on the hour from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Steampunk Storytime will conclude with a final tale at 10:00 PM, just before the evening’s adult festivities.

1:00 PM – “The Four Skillful Brothers” by Larkin Grimm – Four brothers travel the world and learn very different trades, each of which proves valuable in rescuing a princess from a mechanical dragon—but whose skill is most valuable?

2:00 PM – “The Machinist” by Darren Jackson – In a desperate attempt to secure his daughter’s future, a father’s wild lie puts his daughter in an impossible situation. She is saved by a technological marvel, but the price of salvation is higher than she expected.

3:00 PM – “Candy Heaven” by Larkin Grimm – Two children discover a candy store in the heart of the city. From the outside, it looks abandoned; inside, they find a world that is not quite as sweet as it seems.

4:00 PM – “The Clockwork Girl” by T.A. Noonan – Fashioned by a master craftsman, the clockwork girl dreams of becoming real. The journey, though, will take her places she never dreamed and teach her things she never expected.

5:00 PM – “Tiger’s Bride” by Angela Carter – After being lost by her father in a game of cards, a woman becomes the captive of a mysterious beast-man known as “Milord.” What neither of them knows is that each is the other’s perfect mate.

10:00 PM – “Little Red Fascinator and The Wolf on Her Tail” by Larkin Grimm – A milliner’s granddaughter receives advice and a gift that seem to contradict one another, and it’s up to her to decide which is more her style.
