Body Art Ball

The permission to take a brand to a unique place, is always a remarkable opportunity


A decade ago C&C Productions created the critically acclaimed "The Body Art Ball." The show has performed in capacity-filled venues an traveled throughout the country and currently performs in Canada. The Body Art Ball is a high-art, variety show that is refreshingly smart and sexy.

Each night, audiences are treated to the finest art and performance found on stage today. The award-winning cast has recently been seen in national touring productions, including Cirque du Soleil and on TV shows such as Americas Got Talent, So You Think You Dance, etc.

The platform of The Body Art Ball allows the talented cast and music to be updated every year, to meet the highest and timeliest entertainment and art standards. This cutting edge team of artists and performers bring a lifetime of work to the stage for a night you will never forget.


The Body Art Ball is a fusion of two separate disciplines of art into one electrifying performance piece. Fifteen visual artists transform 15 performers into living, breathing works of art. The extraordinary performers take to the stage in a runway show that dazzles the audience, with a presentation to music and synchronized lighting.

The pre-show experience allows a window into the development of the final illusion, as the audience watches the artist apply their paints onto the body of each performer. During the progression of each design, the artists and performers interact with the patrons as they discuss the vision of what will ultimately be delivered on the stage for all to view.

"Ten years ago, I created The Body Art Ball. I knew that I was giving a platform for artists and performers to celebrate their lives. What I did not expect is to share the stage and create friendships with some of the most amazing and beautiful people I have ever known. Thank you to all of them for sharing their hearts and gifts to this project. This show is always evolving. It could not have succeeded in reaching new heights without the best production team in the world. To all the crews, in all the cities, your efforts were always noticed. Most importantly, to my sister and the director of this show, Chris--The Body Art Ball's success lives because of your love and direction."

A huge crazy thank you to all the audiences that marveled and laughed with me. Art is alive because of your support." Candy Smith
