15th October, 5-8pm
This years Dockers & Demons Halloween festival theme is The Coven.
It will focus on natural elements and traditional celebrations of Samhain.
Bringing back the original idea of connection to the planet and our natural resources, remembering our Celtic origins.
Upcycling and recycling should play a role in line with the natural world and the awareness of climate change.
The 4 elements are Earth, Air, Fire and Water. When they are all present they create the 5th element of magic.
Music, art, theatre, creativity, dance, drama, film, poetry and magic are key in this years events and competitions.
Members of the public are encouraged to adopt an element and focus their costumes, parties and characters on a chosen element and Dockers and Demons are going to run lots of creative competitions for creative writing- best scary story, best costumed character, best dressed window display and much more.
We are currently running weekly After School Workshops with local artist, Sueann Moore at the Ringsend and Irishtown Community Centre.
Pierce Rooney, a DJ, producer and label owner, is also facilitating workshops for youths at RMS where the young people are preparing TikTok vidoes, spoken poetry and a Thriller dance (choreographed by Aisling of Collide Dance Academy) to be performed on Halloween!
Meanwhile, the GALS are hard at work busy practicing their TikTok Dance with Shauna from Danspire.
Over the two weeks leading up to Halloween we will be uploading new content each day and going live with some great fun and spooky events.
