HORROR

Fantastic in every sense of the word, HORROR is a labyrinth, for the construction of which Jakop AHLBOM took inspiration from the films of MELIES, HITCHCOCK, KUBRICK, CARPENTER and POLANSKI. From them he borrows the quasi universal traits of the genre, serving a rigorously theatrical and pointed narrative in which we are surprised to recognize ourselves, and others.

AHLBOM gives us the giddying possibility to play with our fears. His mastery of scenic artifice and dramatic devices offers a multitude of levels of comprehension that resonate long after the performance is over.

« Intense shivers… a subtle mix of sinister black humour and outright horror. »
Theaterkrant_logo★★★★

« AHLBOM has surpassed himself with HORROR. It’s a magical world filled with absurdity, black humour, and gags. »
