Claptone’s the Masquerade (13 May)
Claptone’s the Masquerade is a unique concept that has been travelling to different cities around the world creating a world of veiled faces. However, masquerade is not a new idea and dates back to the 1590s where an assembly of people wear masks and guises stemming from French and Spanish words ‘masked party or dance,’ or the Italian version which means a ball in which masks are worn. How exciting to see this evening of masks and hidden faces hit Bali at Mrs Sippy. Masquerade face wear is provided upon entry. Be prepared to transform yourself into an acrobat, a performer or a character that can change you to be who you want to be, hidden behind the confines of a mask. Once you purchase your ticket from Eventbrite on behalf of Claptone’s Masquerade, Bali you will receive your ticket via e-mail. The event will go ahead whatever the weather with no refunds or exchanges. The fun is down at Ms Sippy who has created a great reputation in town and playing host to some great events.
