Night Shift: Day of the Dead
In its ongoing series of artful Night Shift events on the first Thursday of every month, the Museum of Anthropology is set to transform into a vast underworld for Day of the Dead festivities on November 2. Don your best skeleton face paint and come out for an immersive event. At 6 p.m., activities commence with altar-making with the women’s art collective Retazos and artist Ari De La Mora (whose work is shown here), with live music by DJ Kemo; bring a photo of someone you’ve lost to add to the collective shrine. At 8, journey into the interactive theatre work Underworld, in which the folks from SITE theatre guide you through a decaying landscape on a quest to liberate the dead. There’s more, from live painting to an end-of-night dance party—all sounding morbidly fun.
Night Shift: Day of the Dead is at the UBC Museum of Anthropology next Thursday (November 2).
