Tony Nominated Punk Ballerina Karole Armitage creates a gritty street influenced comedy on the delights of Halloween with her company, Armitage Gone! Dance. Designed to appeal to adults as well as to young people and their families, the dancers and puppets move to a musical cornucopia including NoWave New York punk, Wyclef Jean, Fats Waller, a Ray Bradbury text and original music by Terry Dame. Costumes and an installation are by fashion designer, Peter Speliopoulos with additional costumes by Jon Cos Coskunses, member of the Madame Secretary costume design team and artist Simone Duff. The production mixes influences from Disney's 1929 herky-jerky animation and the Haitian Carnival.
