Body & Soul are putting on The Shapeshifter’s Ball, a special “evening of Immortal Proportions, Dark Veils & Twisted Tales in association with the Bram Stoker Festival” in IMMA on Saturday October 25th.

  • 22 year-old multi-instrumentalist East India Youth (also Mercury nominated)
  • Ibiza veteran DJ and former Utah Saints man Tim Sheridan
  • House, dub and techno Berlin DJ Alex Do
  • Ensemble Music-curated classical, electronic and jazz in the 17th Century Baroque Chapel with Tonnta, Téada Orchestra, Loah, OKO and Simon Bird
  • Spectral sounds in IMMA’s glorious Great Hall
  • Complimentary delectable nibbles and theatrical bites on arrival by The Domestic Godless Art Collective;
  • Bespoke visuals by Kevin Freeney of Clu;
  • Goth Karaoke
  • Cabaret from performance to life-drawing at Dr. Sketchy’s anti-art class
  • Guests are encouraged to arrive in costume, and those that don’t can avail of the complimentary roaming make-up artistry or to rent something suitably ostentatious from the expansive, on-site wardrobes of The Abbey Theatre.

Tickets are €44.50 or so with booking fee via Ticketmaster.
