Event Description

The Watermill Center will once again bring together the worlds of theater, art, fashion, design, and society for Paradiso: The 17th Annual Watermill Summer Benefit. Benefit artists and Watermill Residents from over 20 different countries including Taipei, Kuwait, Israel, Germany, USA, Japan, Colombia, England, France, Thailand, and Russia will create six acres of installations and performances that will interpret this year's theme of paradise.

LEIMAY will be there with a performance installation featuring music by Jeremy Slater, Joseph Morag, performance by Denisa Musilova, Miyu Leilani, Masa Asahara & Resident artists, design and concept by Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya.

Beginning at 6pm, the evening will include cocktails provided by Bacardi, a silent auction, performances, art installations, dinner, dancing, and a live auction hosted by auctioneer Simon de Pury. Celebrity DJ Touch of Class will once again provide music to end the evening with everyone dancing under the stars in the auction tent.
