SCANRA: Samhain at the Cellar
The Workmans Cellar
8 Essex St E, Temple Bar, Dublin, D02 HT44, Ireland
'SCANRA: Samhain at the Cellar’ is an immersive night of music, myth and storytelling celebrating the Irish origins of Samhain through the voices and mediums of modern creators. Presented in collaboration with Workmná, who are dedicated to showcasing female and non-binary artists, the night will feature live performances from songwriter and pianist Clara Tracey, industrial-electronic artist Coolgirl (Lizzie Fitzpatrick, formerly of Bitch Falcon) and haunting acapella soundscapes from the Dulciana Vocal Ensemble - each set specially curated to evoke elements of the supernatural and the strange. As well as music, the night will feature pop-up stories and performances from local spooksters Niamh Beirne from Spooky Beore, Osaro, Petrified and Monsieur Pompier's Travelling Freakshow. SCANRA is not your average costume party. While dressing up will be encouraged, we will also invite audiences to bring their curiosity, imaginations and their wits about them as we transform the Cellar into a haunted tapestry of macabre. There are also rumours of one or two ghosts popping up amongst the crowd.
