Ellen Kilsgaard and Chris Crickmay in performance of ‘Oh Monster!’

A dance and mixed media duet using theatrical characters, melodramatic gestures, sound effects and occasional dialogue. The piece is  loosely based around a 1940s Hollywood film noire and a nightmare involving ill defined monstrous presences. Extreme lighting and sound effects add to the peculiar atmosphere of distrubance and a situation that could fly out of control at any moment.
