The Parade Of Lost Souls Is Looking For Talent & Volunteers!

26 Sep

ParadeofLostSouls2018ADo you know about this iconic East Van event celebrating The Day Of The Dead? The Parade of Lost Souls is undoubtedly one of our favourite events? Why you might ask. This is an event BY the people FOR the people. It is a grass-roots festival planned, organized and performed by, and for, the community which draws large crowds. With some creative direction from the folks at the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, The Parade of Lost Souls encompasses dance, art, music, installations, acting and much more.  This year the event happens Saturday, October 27th  with the theme of Magic & Realism.  This is where YOU come in.  The Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret is looking for volunteers to make this another spectacular event.   Below we have set out some what they hope to see for this year’s event. But if you have a talent not listed you wish to share, drop them a note, they’d love to hear from you. Contact is Kat Single-Dain by email at katsingledain@gmail.com.

Keeping the theme of MAGIC, here’s what they are looking for:

1. Performers who have anything that they can do repeatedly as the parades go by them. Can you do a 2 minute performance piece? Or maybe an interactive character?

2. Performers/Clowns/Community Members who would like to be Parade Ambassadors, taking donations from the public. You will be expected to dress up In a costume and take a workshop on best practices when interacting with public.  Seriously, bring in the clowns!  They are looking for 20 this year.

3. DJs for a Hidden Dance Party along the parade route.

4. Roving characters – This is limited only by our imagination.

5. Volunteers to help load in, and set up set decorations.

6. A videographer to produce a short teaser video from this year’s parade (must have equipment and editing skills).

7. Can you tell fortunes? Do you read tarot cards? Do you do magic tricks? Are you a maker? Can you create a cool installation? Have an idea? Drop them a note.

NOW on the other hand if LOVE to dance, TAKE NOTE. There are 2 Flash Mobs planned this year.  The Thriller Flashmob and The Time Warp Flash Mob.  Each has their own Facebook Page and we’ve included links for each one. Should you dare, remember you will need to dress the part for whichever flash mob you wish to participate in.  Want to know more, check out Parade Of Lost Souls.
