Music & Performance

Halloween in Hades

Saturday Nov 1, 2008 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM This is a past program

Plumb the depths of fiery fear with three of LA’s hottest performance groups. The ghoulish music, ghastly dancers and gruesome visuals that descend upon the Hammer Courtyard will have you shrieking with horror. Dress to kill and enter the costume contest. Cash bar all night.

Ian MacKinnon’s Discount Cruise to Hell is a musical performance collective that specializes in bawdy audacity, outrageous debauchery, and mind-bending glitter rock. Purveyors of paranormal dance, the electronic duo Hecuba present cinematic and often wild performances looking for the inner future. We Are the World is a frenzy of movement, music, and visuals from Work, Nina McNeely, and Ryan Heffington. Plus a special spooky screening in the Billy Wilder Theater presented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Public programs are made possible by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
