The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, East Vancouver’s beloved performance and production company that is known for creating fully immersive theatrical worlds, presents the Parade of Lost Souls on Saturday.

The exact location will be revealed at the stroke of midnight on All Hallows’ Eve but be prepared to join in the revelry from 7:00pm to 10:00pm on Saturday, November 1, 2014. A Masquerade After Party will follow at Astorino’s Hall on the drive starting at 9:00pm. Tickets for this event are available online in advance for $20.

Founded on principles of active participation, the success of the Parade of Lost Souls is reliant on the spectator joining the spectacle. Leading up to the event, participate in one of the many artist-led community workshops in dance, music, art and costuming.

This beloved East Vancouver event, whose heartbeat is a community-driven parade inspired by Dia de Muertos (The Day of the Dead), and similar traditions that occur all over the world, was created by Paula Jardine and Public Dreams over 20 years ago. In recent years, the parade has travelled around East Vancouver featuring performance of all sorts, interactive art installations, and this year Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret continues this tradition.
