Red Palace | Immersive Theatre In Waterloo
Ever wondered what would happen if you got drunk with a bunch of fairytale characters?
If so, you’re
A) Pretty weird, and
B) Massively in luck, because the all-female performance collective Shotgun Carousel – creators of Dionysian banquet show Divine Proportions – is back this autumn with a brand new show, Red Palace, which will allow you to do exactly that.
Your evening will split into two parts: 1) A Venetian inspired gothic masquerade ball and, at an additional cost, 2) A dining experience executed by Masterchef semi-finalist Annie Mckenzie. So throw on your best masquerade mask, a DJ and / or a ball gown and follow us into the underground maze that is The Vaults….
The story here centres around a prince who’s throwing an annual ball for his fairytale guests – but not as you know them. Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Wolf will all be there, but in a distorted, Hans Christian Anderson-esque context. Think Brothers Grimm. There’s promise of a bathhouse complete with seductive sirens attempting to lure drunken party-goers (like you) to their death, while an array of characters will generally escort you through the bustling castle via dancers, jesters, contortionists and flying ballerinas – all to the sound of a very talented ghost orchestra.
It’s scary how good they are.
NOTE: Red Palace runs from 24th September – 12th January at the Vaults in Waterloo for more information click here.
