Cast your mind back, if you will, to August. FKA twigs was casting for dancers “of all styles” for a secret yet allegedly MAJOR London event. Ring any bells? Well now the event has been revealed, and yes, it’s major alright.
Described as being “the ultimate Halloween experience,” Veuve Clicquot’s second annual Widow Series will launch in October, this year titled Rooms and curated by avant-pop sensation FKA twigs.
Following in the footsteps of last year’s curator, photography legend Nick Knight, twigs has called this one of her “most ambitious projects to date”.
Rooms is set to be an immersive experience, capturing all the ethereal theactricallity that twigs has come to represent, and audience participation is key. Prepare to delve head first into an emotive world of self-discovery at an event which makes for an intriguing alternative to traditional Halloween festivities.
The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series is dedicated to celebrating the pioneering prowess of their founder, Madame Clicquot, who after her husband’s early death single-handedly took over the business and built it into what is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious champagne manufacturers in the world.
Her shrewdness and tenacious spirit are honoured by the company which still bares her name in this two date cultural experience, and with the unique talents and aesthetic of FKA twigs this is bound to be a fitting tribute to Madame Clicquot, on the 150th anniversary of her death.
Tickets start at £20 and include a glass of Veuve Clicquot upon arrival, pre-book to avoid disappointment.
