Gore and terror: How we created horror movie effects for the stage

WhatsOnStage.com: With Horror, director Jakop Ahlbom creates a magical world live on stage. It is rare to see these kind of effects - usually associated with cinema - onstage and has been a challenge for us to translate the horror movie visuals for the theatre. And to do it in such a way that the effects can be performed on stage day in, day out.

Just like former plays by Jakop, Horror is very visual and without spoken words. But it isn't just a special effects show. We use them a lot, but they are woven into the storyline and choreography.
