The title of Octave Mirbeau’s subversive 1899 novel, The Torture Garden, has been appropriated over the years by numerous musicians and artists. Among other things, Torture Garden is the name of a London fetish club, which is returning to Los Angeles for the first time in 17 years. Hosts Dita Von Teese and Amanda Lepore present high-flying aerialist Katrina Lilwall and a DJ set by T.G. co-founder David Wood alongside assorted DJs and burlesque and BDSM fetish performers and a latex fashion show.
