Looking to combine your Halloween partying with a themed theatrical experience? Here’s our selection of thrilling and chilling shows on tap this week to get you “shivering with anticipation” in the theatre dark:
OCT 30 – NOV 2 | Monument National | $16-28
A mysterious and magnetic multidisciplinary performance by Australian artist Justin Shoulder, Carrion draws on queer and bicultural ancestral mythologies to explore what it mean to be human in an era when mankind’s destructive influence over the planet is rapidly redefining the laws of nature. Raw, riveting, and hauntingly relevant.
SPURT OF BLOOD
OCT 31 | FreeStanding Room | $20
After a successful run earlier this summer at the Montreal Fringe, SPURT OF BLOOD: Halloween is back for one night only – and now with a new immersive cult dance party! A Theatre of Cruelty experience by Antonin Artaud, his morally rigorous and violent criteria are employed in this chilling production that includes projections, intense soundscapes, and stage blood.
THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW
OCT 17 – NOV 2 | MainLine Theatre | $20-30
Worlds collide in Richard O’Brien’s musical theatre masterpiece as camp sci-fi meets sexual exploration, glam-rock, and sensual daydreams. A much-anticipated staple in Montrealers’ Halloween events calendar, this fully-staged spectacle is the city’s only live musical version of the cult classic. Bring your best callbacks and maddening time warp moves.
