This Halloween, Saturday October 31st @ 8PM, you are invited to join Helena as she hosts THE CÁCA MILIS SAMHAIN CABARET. Secure your place asap by registering here.
Once the kids have finished their virtual trick or treating next Saturday evening, parents might like a little Halloween treat themselves – and the “Cáca Milis Cabaret”, presented by Dalkey local Helena Mulkerns, is set to provide a fun and bewitching evening of the arts via ZOOM!
What is the Cáca Milis Cabaret?
Since 2009 Helena has hosted and coordinated The Cáca Milis Cabaret , which presents a blend of emerging and established artists in an eclectic evening of new music, literature, dance, spoken word, cabaret, circus arts, comedy, short film and more. Helena, as well as hosting and performing in the cabaret, is an author in her own right. Her first book, Ferenji, is published by Doire Press and is set in Africa and Afghanistan.
The Cáca Milis Cabaret was founded at the Wexford Arts Centre. The cabaret’s Dublin base has been at Arthur’s Blues and Jazz Club and it has featured at Electric Picnic and festivals around the country. This year, under Covid restrictions, you can see it from anywhere, now that its shows are live online via ZOOM. One of the recent cabarets featured Colm Tóibín, early music Diva Caitriona O’Leary, mime artist Carlo Jacucci and more. You can watch the video here.
The featured artists line-up for this enchanting evening
This Saturday at 8pm, watch out for a beautiful video made by Sandycove native Josh Johnston. A pianist and composer who is also the musical director at the Unitarian Church on St Stephens’ Green, the video features music from his new CD, Where we’re standing now, and is filled with haunting visuals of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown!
Elsewhere on the bill, award-winning author June Caldwell reads spooky fiction, the Banshee screams from your screen in a
short film by Conor McMahon, and there’ll be dance from New York with Darrah Carr and music from Michigan with Enda Reilly as well as some classic cabaret.
All ticket sales go towards supporting cabaret artists and the continuing work of the The Wexford Arts Centre, a registered charity, whose work is more important than ever at this time.
