Performing for Halloween Horror Nights 8
In the blink of an eye, it’s over. One and a half months of performing my own solo bellydance piece as part of the cannibals’ show, two times a night, four nights a week. It’s been a dream for me and I’m so happy to have gotten this chance to be part of Universal Studios Singapore’s Halloween Horror Nights 8.
It’s amazing to be part of a large scale production like Halloween Horror Nights, with the beautiful costumes, makeup, sets, lighting, and conceptualization of the shows. It’s my first time working in a production of this scale, and it’s been a really eye-opening experience for me.
Being part of a scare zone was definitely fun for me because of how much we were able to interact with guests during meet and greet sessions. It was funny to scare people as they walked through the zone. Of course, this format also made for a lot of phototaking!
I got to know some of the regular guests at Universal Studios Singapore (USS), and drew encouragement to perform my best every day by seeing them come to watch our show. Many of them were also amazing photographers and took all of the photos in this blog post!
I’m also grateful to be with a group of extremely fun and talented scare actors in the Cannibals zone. There was a lot of interaction between the performers during our meet and greet sets, which kept things always interesting for myself personally, and which I hope the guests found entertaining too! Thanks to my fellow performers, it was honestly not hard to immerse myself in my character and in the world we helped to create, every single evening.
If you missed the show, or just want to see the dance again, here’s a video for you:
