A Jakop Ahlbom Production


By Jakop Ahlbom

Direct from Europe comes a thrilling homage to the horror film genre.

05 Sep – 08 Sep

Direct from Europe - a breathtaking nightmare live on stage

From acclaimed Swedish theatre-maker Jakop Ahlbom comes an immersive visual spectacular that has to be seen to be believed!

Over the last ten years, Ahlbom has developed a trademark theatrical form that unites illusion, mime, movement and music. Horror unleashes his unique imagination to create a surreal world of horror, using special effects that have never before been seen in theatres. A homage to the film genre, this show is a technical tour de force; expect levitations, vanishings, apparitions, dislocations and a good dose of humour. Bodies disappear into couches, blood spurts up to the ceiling, a dismembered hand crawls – wailing as it goes…

Having thrilled audiences in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris, this spine-tingling and thoroughly entertaining live experience will have you on the edge of your seat!

Recommended for ages 14+. Contains adult themes and simulated violence.


"A masterclass in time-and-motion stagecraft...Wonderfully entertaining"- The Guardian (UK)

“Genuinely terrifying... ingenous tribute to horror cinema, where anything can happen... fiendishly clever” – The Stage (UK)
