directorspickpurpleA cinematic happening unlike anything you will have experienced before. 

Herk Harvey’s stunning black and white cult classic Carnival of Souls will be reinterpreted live on stage in a unique and vibrant “live live” cinematic experience.

Rather than simply having an ensemble perform a new score to a silent film, all the audio is produced live.

  • All music is performed live by a specially created ensemble
  • All dialogue is performed live by a group of actors playing multiple roles
  • All sound effects are created live by a Foley artist, using a combination of mechanical and digital sound design

The result is an immersive audio/visual environment, an integrated conversation between cinema, theatre, music and sound design. 

Carnival of Souls itself is an ideal choice for this treatment as one of the films key strengths is simply how it looks. The first and last feature by Kansas based industrial film-makers Herk Harvey and John Clifford, it is a deeply atmospheric and beautifully shot “horror” film; blurring levels of reality and existence, the film explores the dark underbelly of small-town life, and creates a world where the familiar and everyday becomes alien and threatening.

This cinematic experience is part of a two night series. Live Live Cinema will also be presenting Dementia 13 on Thursday 12 March at 8pm. Book now and become part of the experience!
