Dark Poe

An extraordinary story, a sensory experience.

Plunged into total blackness, the public takes part in a musical reading of one of Poe’s short stories (Ligeia, 1838.) The very darkness of the text naturally implies a darkened atmosphere, but the goal here isn’t only to send a shiver down your spine. Without vision our other senses are heightened. The show comprises three sound sources: the reading of the text, roaming music and an electro-acoustic piece. The sounds may emerge from anywhere in the concert hall. During the show, an actor threads their way through the public, a mobile troublemaker that plays on the senses of hearing, touch and smell.
