Ghostly doings — with dessert — are on offer at the Cabiri's "The Ghost Game: Dead Gods" in West Seattle.
Something spooky with something sweet — that’s what the Cabiri, a performance troupe with a grudge against gravity, are bringing to West Seattle this weekend and next, with their third annual evening of “deadly dessert theater and aerial dance spectacle.”
“The Ghost Game: Dead Gods” is a show with a Halloween flavor, using interactive storytelling to tell the tales of dying deities. That includes crazed Greek god Attis, who turned into a pine tree after cutting off his genitals, and Inanna, a Sumerian goddess of love, fertility and war who made frequent trips to the underworld.
The Cabiri caution that “The Ghost Game,” recommended for mature audiences only, is “not for the faint of heart.” Attendees are encouraged to come in costume — and expected to participate.
How that’ll work as they chow down on cupcakes from West Seattle’s Sugar Rush Bakery (first weekend) or cheesecake from The Confectional (second weekend) is anyone’s guess. But the photos from last year’s show make this eerie spectacle look well worth investigating.
