The Vancouver Art Gallery has never looked so undead. A dozen of Vancouver's most inspired zombies took the stage at FUSE to dance Thriller for the masses (and scare the daylights out of a few of them as well). Thanks to Vanessa and Kristina at the Gallery for setting it all up, and congratulations to the UBC Girlz Bhangra Team on an excellent performance as well.
Hello again, a couple notes on costumes and free makeup.
First of all, we’ve got two small rooms booked as “changerooms” at the Roundhouse. Bring a mirror if you plan to be doing your own makeup in there. Also, don’t leave your stuff in the rooms – they won’t be locked.
VFS Makeup for Film & Television students and graduates will be on hand prior to the event to provide Zombie makeup to participants for free. We hope to make up as many of you as we can! This opportunity will be on a first come, first served basis, so come early.
Time: 3.30pm – 5.30pm
Where: Roundhouse Community Centre,
Exhibition Hall, 181 Roundhouse Mews
To help gauge demand, please drop us an email to register your interest. Contact Shira Gordon at email@example.com.
Registration begins at 4:00 pm on Saturday and closes at 5:15. There’s been a lot of media attention for this year’s event, and while we’re going to do our best to make registration speedy, it might still take a while (especially with the crash course finishing at 4:30). Don’t leave it until the last minute – the dance will start at 5:30 pm sharp, with or without you.
Thursday’s rehearsal will mostly be run-throughs of the dance, maybe with a small amount of instruction on the more difficult parts of the dance.
Ceroc Vancouver is kind enough to have invited us to its Halloween party on October 30th for FREE! (Just bring a Ceroc Vancouver zombie flyer, available on either Thursday or Saturday.) This will be the official after-party of the event, see more details at http://www.cerocvancouver.ca/news/.
