After a Covid hiatus, Bram is back to its ghoulish ways serving up mesmerising illusions, deliciously dark treats and spooktacular surprises. Its centrepiece is Dan Archer’s Borealis which marries light and sound to magic up the illusion of an aurora borealis in Dublin Castle’s Upper Courtyard every night of the festival.
Other highlights include Motherfoclóir, the Irish language podcast which is back from the dead for a once-off special live edition at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks (Saturday 29 October).
In a special screening, Nosferatu100 celebrates this iconic film’s centenary with the live performance of a new score written by composer and musician Matthew Nolan (Saturday 29 October) while the 1931 Spanish version of Drácula which was filmed on the lot of the original at night-time gets an Irish debut screening in the Lighthouse (Friday 28 October).
Friday October 28th – Monday October 31st.
Details on how to experience Borealis, for free, can be found on the Bram Stoker Festival website.
