16:30 – 23:00


Join us this Halloween as the combined powers of Plenty Fuss, Girl Gang and Hatch join forces for a séance of film, music and spooky crafts!

**Note: The evening will begin promptly with the film showing of ‘Siksa’ from 8pm-9pm followed by music**


Spoken word meets drumming: Eilis’s first video ‘Intellectual Men’, hit 15,000 views days after release, and was shared by Arte Tracks, Tom Tom Magazine, Loud Women and Curated by Girls.
Speaking truths on social structures, feminism, mental health, creative insecurities, personal tragedies and the impacts of living abroad, Eilis Frawley brings a new tone to universal topics. 
Eilis will be playing as part of her European tour to coincide with the release of her debut album 'Impossible Truths.' 

'Intellectual Men':

SIKSA [Film - Poland]

SIKSA is an avant-garde/ queer musical about the current situation for women in Poland, the rise of right-wing politics and the heroine's experience of adolescence in the midst of this. 
"based on SIKSA's "Stabat Mater Dolorosa", [SIKSA] is a performative dream of making a movie come true, where both the dream and the movie are like chewing gum that has been tasteless for too long. A nostalgic invitation to a dancing story about a girl returning to her childhood, when she dressed up as different women using her mother's wardrobe, and all the roles she played were to please herself. This film is a tool for reconstructing the scenes from the youth, as well as a baroque farewell to all the glitter and unicorns. Stabat Mater Dolorosa is like a bayonet slashing through modern times. She gives us micro-performances with all her body, and at her own risk. SIKSA's music is the scenario rejected, grinded, spat out, negated and intensified by the characters. Piotr Macha's camera is one of the murder weapons that SIKSA would like to use to fuck up the modern reality. It's a language of art that SIKSA has been using almost unnoticed since 2014. A gun, a girl and death – those are the times we live in."
In the film makers words, Siska is 'the most divisive Polish artist in recent memory, whose radical and brutally honest performances are smashing the patriarchy one gig at a time. Coming from punk, literary and theatre backgrounds, her shows dissect the Polish consciousness.' 

Hatch band Ravedadd will bringing together big bass, big drums and mesmerizing electric violin for a powerful and dazzling performance!

Get involved in some spooky crafting run by feminist collective Girlgang, including making your own Pentagram to decorate!
