Remember 'Return to the Bubble Kingdom'? The huge, end of summer warehouse party in Brooklyn hosted by Unicorn Meat NYC, featuring performances by Conspirator and Two Fresh among others, that promised tons of quirky visual features to excite guests. Along with 'large scale art installations', 'choreographed performances', and 'holograms that float in the air above the dance floor', a major selling point was a 'black light reactive waterfall on the dance floor'.
How do you get a 'black light reactive waterfall' into a Brooklyn warehouse? Apparently by filling a swimming pool with glow stick chemicals. Gothamist is now reporting that two 19 year old women, Rocio Marie Cabrera and Sarah Deodath, both of the Bronx, have filled a lawsuit against both the promoters and the owner of the warehouse. They claim the pool left them with permanent vision impairment.
Unicorn Meat has Released This Statment on Their Website:
As a small event organization, we work hard to create diverse, entertaining, but ultimately safe parties for our clientele. It’s all about doing good things and having fun — for us and our clients. We have become a leading event company in Brooklyn by doing just that. We try to support not only ourselves, but also other talented musicians, performers, and visual artists, through our events.
We understand that claims have just been made – with massive and unnecessary publicity, both online and in mainstream media — that two individuals were injured at one of our events. We are of course concerned, as we pride ourselves on sponsoring safe events. We have not been served with any papers yet or arranged counsel. We do not know the full details of the accusations. We do know that no one else has come forward with similar claims. Yet dozens of other people participated in the same activities that allegedly produced injury.
We just found out about all this in the last 24 hours or so. It has been a chaotic situation for us. We have not had a chance to investigate the facts. We know nothing about the people who are complaining about what happened at the event, if anything. We don’t know whether there is any legitimacy to the claims. We do know that one of the people complaining lists her place of employment as a hair styling salon that also manufactures and sells their own products. Those products, such as hair sprays and gels, can cause eye irritations. We will want to investigate the possibility that she developed an irritation from her workplace or other location but we haven’t done this yet. We just don’t know – and, again, no one except the two people complaining has reported any similar issues to us. We do intend to respond to this litigation in a responsible, thoughtful, and professional way, with help from counsel.
