Dress up in your best costume and join us for a special Day of the Dead party. There’ll be live music from Our Ladies of Sorrow, celebrating Italian Horror cinema, its lurid imagery, and even more lurid soundtracks, with nods to Morricone, Nicolai, Alessandroni, and synth-prog pioneers Goblin. Mischief La Bas performers will be presenting interventions and surprises throughout the night, with music and dancing until late.
Part of the Festival of Ian Smith – A Celebration of Death
An eclectic mix of art, music, performance and installation – all investigating, challenging, confronting or celebrating death. The festival investigates why we often find it difficult to talk about death in our society, and how art and artists can help.
Originally conceived as a tribute to artist, performer and Glasgow’s Mischief La-Bas Director Ian Smith, who took his own life in 2014 after suffering with clinical depression, this is an expanded version of last year’s debut in Glasgow. The aim is to celebrate death, loved ones, art and life.
