Film Fatale presents: Danse Macabre Halloween PaBeware this
Halloween for the door between the living and the dead is opening for a
night of unspeakable glamour. The beautiful and the damned will rise
again for Film Fatale’s Danse Macabre, Ireland’s most decadent Halloween
For one night only, the 17th century halls
of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham becomes a haunted house with a touch
of the cirque du freak. Beware of the strange and unusual. Our fiendish
fan dancers, frightful Follies and avante garde performers will haunt
the stage for the Danse Macabre show. Our aerialists will tease on the
trapeze. There will be terrible beauties and blood-soaked burlesque.
Take part in our Thriller dance class and join our Thriller dance-off
later in the night. Sit in our silent cinema but beware the lurker!
Flaunt yourself on our midnight procession as our twisted collective of
performers prance and dance around the 17th century courtyard. Cavort
from room to room and try not to be caught by the Brides of Dracula!
Play old carnival and Halloween games. And don’t forget to stop by Madam
Mim’s fortune booth.
In the great hall, you can dance like the
devil to live old-meets-new vintage fusion, red hot jazz and the
brasstastic Stomptown Brass. Sacrifice yourself at the alter in the
gothic chapel, where you can dance for your soul to the Monster Mash,
Thriller and your favourite music of the dead and the damned.
This is vintage-themed event and strictly
fancy-dress. It is a night for the surrealists, the ghosts of Weimar,
the masqueraders, the gothic goddesses, the vamps, the femme fatales,
the steampunk princes, the vintage queens, the retro kings, the
flappers, gangsters, the beautiful and the damned, the fantasists and
Join in the spectacle and make sure that you look devilishly handsome. However you come, we want you to look frightfully good.
October 28th. Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Dublin. 8pm
