Completing this ensemble production are Steffi Walker (Baba’s War, White Bear Theatre and War Festival), Megan Ford (Feminasty, UK tour), Eleanor Dillon-Reams (HoneyBEE, Edinburgh Fringe), Camilla Harding (The Tempest, Rose Playhouse), and Alice Morgan-Richards (Alice’s Adventure’s Underground, The Vaults).
Combining cabaret, circus, dance and genre-defying performance, Shotgun Carousel’s latest experience invites guests to escorted by an array of audacious characters through swirling revelry to a place of glamour, danger and transformation.
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.
Directed by Celine Lowenthal, the experience is inspired by the carnivals of Venice as well as the vicious narratives of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. It has been written by Cressida Peever and designed by Maeve Black, while Masterchef semi-finalist Annie McKenzie will provide an exclusive menu for booked diners to enjoy.
Red Palace will play at The Vaults from the 24th September until the 12th January 2020.
