Red Palace will play at The Vaults from the 24th September.
Following on from their previous immersive dining experience Shotgun Carousel will return to The Vaults this September with their new masquerade ball, Red Palace.
This new immersive experience is set to combine cabaret, circus,
dance and genre-defying performance alongside gastro-storyteller and Masterchef semi-finalist Annie McKenzie’s exclusive menu for diners.
Join The Prince and his fairy tale guests in the living labyrinth of the Red Palace and enjoy a decadent evening of feast and fantasy. Roam the halls of the Gothic masked ball to meet the court, witness the beautiful, the brilliant, the wanton, the bizarre. Nothing and no one is what they seem; dance, dine and discover the mystery at the heart of this ball.
Shotgun Carousel’s new experience is inspired by of the carnivals of Venice as well as the vicious narratives of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, mixed with a dash of Gothic macabre inspired by the tales of Edgar Allan Poe. It has been written by Cressida Peever and designed by Maeve Black.
Talking about the news, director Celine Lowenthal said: “Red Palace is a dream come true for Shotgun and myself. Having made our madcap Divine Proportions last year to great success, we are thrilled to have the mighty support of The Vaults and to be given the freedom to create such a multidimensional production, in The Vaults’ atmospheric caverns, tunnels and underground halls. We are already plotting and planning how to make Red Palace both a really special, refined piece of theatre, and a joyfully escapist night out.”
Red Palace will play at The Vaults from the 24th September until the 12th January 2020.
