Danse Macabre – Halloween Monster Ball. 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 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, look frightfully good.
