Over-the-Rhine’s Memorial Hall, the Tiffany-chandeliered, 1908 Beaux-Arts treasure teeming with handcrafted details in marble, wood and plaster, is tucked at Grant and Elm streets, next to Music Hall. The space is said to be haunted by the figure of a Civil War-era soldier who materializes in one of the steep balconies. 


Whether or not that ghost will appear this Halloween season is uncertain. But what’s for sure is that on Friday, Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard’s mesmerizing nine-member Exhale Dance Tribe will be on hand for their second annual Dead Can Dance show, spotlighting the couple’s Modern-, Hip-Hop- and Jazz-inflected choreography. The evening-length experience is loosely based on the medieval allegory of a Danse Macabre or “Dance of Death.” 


Exhale Dance Tribe presents Dead Can Dance Friday at Memorial Hall. Tickets and more info: exhaledancetribe.com or 513-505-6340.
