Part two of a trilogy by experimental artist House of Vnholy, this poetic interpretation of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story Shadow – a Parable, as one person navigates through time and space, and the dark depths of the theatre.

Stark and gothic, this intimate, immersive performance installation offers a meditation on silence, absence and transcendence. The celebration of secular rituals and the religious iconography of death and dying are contemplated through potent visual imagery and a haunting vocal and sound composition.
