Tall Tales was a Halloween party we had been hoping to host for over two years. We were on the hunt for an exciting venue to suit the concept and our secret manor in Shankill was the perfect find. With its black box nightclub, walled garden, chill out rooms and white walled marquee it became the most perfect setting to welcome our guests on Halloween 2016.
Our aim was to transform the rooms of this manor into interactive spaces each themed to the lesser known Demons from Irish Folklore. Using theatrical performance, art installations, music and immersive performance we created an all-encompassing event.
Using giant white and black balloons, UV cannons and blue par cans we changed a white walled wedding marquee into the realm of The Taisé. The Red Man domain was a sparsely lit space with creepy nightmares playing on the screen behind attendees dancing. The Changeling area played host to various theatrical performances, storytelling, séances and shadow puppetry to trick and treat the mind.
As always we encouraged our attendees to dress up to give them the opportunity to transform themselves into an alter ego for just one night! They did not let us down.
