Drawn forth by the lure of Epic Partying, the veil has now been lifted on these secretive beasts, and there is much they can teach us, for they represent the last sliver of mystery from the Old World. But beware, there are those that would seek to destroy what they represent. Prepare yourself, for here there be monsters.

This Saturday, October 30th, Le Mondo presents WOLFTHICKET, a new dance piece exploring a simple yet vast question: why do we dance?
During this exploration, WOLFTHICKET hops and skips across time and place, with inspiration drawn from the traditions, rituals, and fantasies of the 'girls games', such as hand clapping games, recess activities, and make-believe. It then evolves into more adult forms of play, like vaudeville and the joyful catharsis of club culture.
Skull and Bones is a symphonic showcase meets Halloween rave. Classic orchestra showpieces like The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, “Mars” from The Planets, Danse macabre, and the finale of Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony are played in their original form then remixed and combined with electronic beats; layered with vocal stems of Post Malone, Muse, Drake, and Kanye West; and woven into dancehall floor-killers.
