THE DARK CIRCUS PARTY: HALLOWEEN SPECIAL on Saturday 2nd November 2019
Bourne & Hollingsworth resurrects the landmark Dark Circus Party with a special Day of the Dead edition taking place on Saturday 2nd November 2019 at EartH Hackney. Guests will be submerged in a dark and thrilling world, as they join the Dark Circus skeleton troupe and run away for the evening to a sensationally spine-chilling circus, full to the brim with immersive entertainment.
Día de Muertos, The Day of the Dead, is a welcome back party to the souls of the deceased where Mexican tradition invites the dead to party amongst the living - reasoning that, after all, ‘todos somos calaveras’- we are all skeletons. This special edition of Dark Circus Party sees creatures of the underworld and ancient Mexican rituals intermingled with spectacular circus entertainment for our deepest darkest party yet.
Escape the streets of London and cross the threshold into the surreal underworld of The Dark Circus. Enter the haunted big top and become immersed in the shadows of the bazaar. Stop by the make-up wagon and artfully transfigure your visage into an elegant painted skull, swing by the bar for a heady agave fuelled cocktail, embrace the Mexican spirit of the evening, paying homage at our celebrity Ofrenda, a shrine to our most-loved bygone stars, and be swept away by the celebratory death procession marching through the festivities.
The entertainment for the night follows a traditional circus bill, but with a twisted Day of the Dead spin: marvel over a sublime evening arrangement of acrobatics, hula-hooping, sword swallowing, and masterful fire performances. Stare starry-eyed at contortionists twisting ththemselves into astonishing shapes as burlesque and go-go dancers showcase daring displays, with stilt-walkers towering above the contorted creatures of the underworld.
For dress code think Day of the Dead skeleton chic - painted faces, explosions of colour, Aztec marigolds and floral festoons - with a sombrero absolutely most welcome. Or imagine yourself as one of our Mexican Dark Circus troupe; Snake Charmers, Ring Masters, Strong Men, the Mexican Wrestling Ring Master…let your imagination run wild but please do remember that no costume means you will be promptly catapulted into our snake pit.
So enter this carnival of curiosities and run away to the circus for a magical Halloween extravaganza.
