Hell on Wheels: OSF finishes giant puppet for Night of Dread parade



ELEVENTH ANNUAL “NIGHT OF DREAD” COMMUNITY PARADE
Saturday October 30, 6 to 9 pm
From organizer David Anderson (director of Clay and Paper Theatre):
Join us for the eleventh annual Night of Dread, Clay & Paper Theatre’s invitation to the community to parade our private and collective fears through the darkened streets of Toronto. The hour-long procession returns to Dufferin Grove Park for an evening of ceremonial festivities that compel us to call on, mock and banish the fears that unite and divide us in these tumultuous times. Night of Dread is an unforgettable evening of pageantry, music and masquerade incorporating towering puppets, stilt dancers, fire-spinners and fearful masks in a daring exploration of dread.
This community celebration incorporates international folk and theatrical traditions, drawing inspiration from festivals of death and remembrance around the world. Come dance in the streets with musicians, puppeteers, dancers and stilt walkers; together we’ll laugh at our fears, waltz with death, eat the “bread of the dead,” and remember those who have gone from our midst.
4 PM: Parade begins assembling at Dufferin Grove Park
6 PM: Parade departs
Dress Code: Black & White
