Embrace the Darkness
“An exploration of the Gothic Imagination and the Meaning of Horror”
Conceived in the 18th century as a revival of the medieval romance, modern thematic legacy of Gothic fiction includes horror, romance and fantasy while the aesthetics of the movement have expanded even further afield. Writer, actor and Necromancer Steven Dark’s presentation aims to challenge our conceptions of ‘light’ and ‘dark’ and their usual associations with the polarities of Light as Life, God and Goodness and the Dark as Death, the Devil and Evil.
Premiered at Le Boudoir, Prague for Halloween 2013 “Embrace the Darkness” is a one man presentation with a running time of 30-60 minutes. Suitable for any size of venue and audience, please contact me for further information and availability.
