Danse Macabre Halloween’s Monster Ball

Danse Macabre Poster PortraitBeware 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 Danse Macabre Monster’s Ball, Ireland’s most decadent Halloween party.

For one night only, the grand Concert Hall becomes a haunted house with a touch of the cirque du freak. Your hosts — the divine temptress and dancefloor slayer, Bonnie Boux, and prince of all things unholy, Beelzebub, will lead you through a party that mixes live music, DJs, dance, variety, immersive performances, cabaret and the occasional sacrifice.Beware of the strange and unusual. Our fiendish fan dancers, frightful Follies and avant-garde performers will haunt the stage. There will be terrible beauties and blood-soaked burlesque. Rocky Horror Picture Show Ireland

will show you the moves for Ireland’s biggest time warp. The Sanderson Sisters will stop by for some spell casting and The House of Jeuje Dancers will raise the roof and the dead with their unearthly moves.

Flaunt yourself at our procession as our twisted collective of performers prance and dance. Play old carnival and Halloween games. Find out your future at Madam Mim’s fortune booth. Scream your blood-curdling lungs out at karaoke and try not to be caught by the Brides of Dracula! Dance like the devil to the brass-tastic Kings of Brass. Dance for your soul to Gin and Juice, and sacrifice yourself at the alter of DJs Przem and Pyrotek and their devilish dancers.

This is an alternative Halloween extravaganza and strictly fancy-dress. It is a night for the surrealists, the ghosts of Weimar, the resurrected voguers, the masqueraders, the gothic goddesses, the vamps, the femme fatales, the steampunk princes, the vintage queens, the retro kings, the flappers, gangsters, the fantasists and the other-worldly, the beautiful and the damned.

Join in the spectacle and however you come, we want you to look frightfully good

beautiful-and-the-damned-poster-final

This Halloween, Prohibition: the Beautiful and the Damned at IMMA brings you the 1920s you know and love with a taste of the Underworld — a night of gothic glamour, strange curiosities, the bewitching and the bizarre.

Embrace the darker side of the Twenties at Ireland’s most elegantly decadent Halloween celebration. The juice-joints will be serving blood-red bathtub gin punch. The fiendish fan dancers and frightful flappers will haunt the stage for the Dance Macabre show.

Try our new Guys and Ghouls 1920s speed dating. Or dance for your soul to live ragtime and old-meets-new Twenties fusion, the Monster Mash, and vintage and electro-swing DJs.

In our Parlour room, Film Fatale in association with Bram Stoker Festival, will enthrall and excite with ghastly tales and gothic performances.

This is a vintage-themed event and strictly fancy-dress. We want you to flaunt your inner fiendish flapper or gangster, or pay homage to Twenties horror and silent movies. However you come, we want you to look frightfully good. This is, after all, a night of unspeakable glamour.

Film Fatale presents: Prohibition Halloween Party IMMA

PROHIBITION 500x500

Friday  31st October
IMMA

Step back in time and party like it’s 1929 as Film Fatale transport you back to the decadent days of Gatsby, gangsters, flappers and 1920s glamour.

Hidden away from the prying eyes of the fuzz, there’s a hopping joint full of the sweetest looking dames and the hardest trouble boys, a prohibition night that will evoke the mood of a 1920s speakeasy for you to drink your bootlegged hooch and celebrate this hedonistic era with wanton abandonment.

This Halloween, Film Fatale brings you the Prohibition-era experience. Dublin’s IMMA will be transformed into an opulent 1920s Halloween fancy-dress party, the kind of elegant yet wild soire that would do Jay Gatsby proud.

Inside the majestic doors of IMMA, there will be fast-footed dancing flappers in sparkling ensembles, exotic fan dancers, people Lindy Hopping to our 1920s ragtime band or doing the charleston to retro DJs The Andrews Sisters’ Brothers.

There will be one room dedicated solely to 1920s and 1930s Prohibition era, the music it has inspired and dance-your-socks off electro swing. IMMA’s gothic chapel will become the Punch Parlour, a perfect place to do the monster mash, or dance to your favourite vintage hits from the 20s to the 70s.

Drink prohibition-era “bathtub gin” punch, listen to cabaret and have your photo taken at the silent film photo booth. There might even be some saucy burlesque and some “gambling”. There ain’t no rules in this joint.

Show your moxy through the rags you wear and set the scene by dressing up in your vintage finest or pay homage to 1920s silent movie stars, dames and fellas, flappers and philosophers, or gangsters and their molls. This is a Halloween fancydress event but the dress code is vintage inspired.

Tell your friends, people you like but trust but no one else —this event is on the QT so shhh! Keep your trap shut, don’t wear iron and no funny business or we’ll all end up under glass.

It’s gonna be swell kid!
