October 29, 2018, Monday - Death Makeovers! (Embalming & Death Photos in the Lobby at TCHF) at Southern Theater

Time: 6:30p nightly

Location: The Southern Theater, 1420 Washington Ave S

Death Makeovers! (Embalming & Death Photos in the Lobby at TCHF)

Macabre pranksters and Pre-Postmortem Experts, Amica and Hekate, will fly from Portland Oregon to Minneapolis' Twin Cities Horror Festival this fall to provide one-of-a-kind embalming makeovers and death portraits in the lobby of the theater between shows. 

Think of us as a creepy, silly, ambient, live performance art installation.... Or sort of like those chair massage tents that set up in parks and airports and malls. 

First we'll lay you down, turn on some soothing (freaky) music, and go through the motions of "embalming" while bantering over your "dead" body. Then we give you a mini corpse-like makeover, lay you in the coffin, snap a photo, sign your death certificate, and send you on your way with your souvenirs! 

Stop by our morgue between shows to see what it's like on the coroner's slab! 

Appointments are flexible, lasting between 10 and 20 minutes, and can be made in advance (or just walk on up), and are performed for a sliding scale donation (Suggested $15-30).

Sign up for your Death Makeover and Casket Picture in advance by shooting us a DM or email with your preferred time! (
