About

GHOSTS 

Ghosts is a one woman storytelling performance for adults. Several different stories spanning childhood fears to the anxiety of adulthood are woven together with Greek myths and ghostly tales to create a uniquely engaging, frightening and relatable experience. Incredible projections and soundscapes carry the audience seamlessly from claustrophobic bedrooms to the vast halls of Hades with horror and heartbreak in between.

Written and performed by Gemma Walker. Directed by Tonya Sheina. Sound, video and lighting design by Barry Davis.

LEGENDS OF THE COVEN

Marie Laveau, H.P Blavatsky, Biddy Early, Maud Gonne. Just a few of the worlds 'witch women'. These women defied the cultural norms expected of them in their lifetimes in order to delve head-first into Earth's occult mysteries. Often misunderstood, each one gained notoriety and respect in their respective traditions, and forever altered the cultural mind-scape of humanity. Yet, most of these women inhabit a niche, obscure corner of our awareness.

Legends of the Coven is a spine-tingling show that celebrates these women. Performed by spoken word artist/performer Abby Oliveira with video by Mel Bradley. It will utilise storytelling, spoken-word poetry, music, soundscape and visuals, to present historical accounts of (and fictional tales inspired by) the women of the world's mysteries.
