Beware 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 party.
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 the other-worldly.
Join in the spectacle and make sure that you look devilishly handsome. However you come, we want you to look frightfully good.
