Sleep No More (2016)

Samhain… the world where the membrane between the living and the dead grows thin.

A world intoxicated by dreams and nightmares…

A wedding and a funeral, the last waltz between baptism and burial…

The summoning of mischief and the arrival of agitations…

Sleep No More, presented as part of Bram Stoker Festival Dublin, sees hundreds of Macnas performers invade the streets of Dublin on Hallowe’en night, as fire-breathing monsters tower in the skies and darkly seductive melodies infect the air.

I was transported away from the streetside into a dark steampunk novel set in Victorian times... but with zombies.
