Grand Guignol Feb. 6 Lecture
This unique theatre form – the “theatre of laughter and terror” with a little spatter thrown in – is the precursor to the modern horror film and has never been more relevant. It was the first form of theatre Hitler banned once the Nazis occupied Paris. From hot and cold showers, to scripts, to effects techniques, this workshop will provides a primer in what was once the most popular theatre form in the world.
Saturday, Feb. 6 will be a two-hour lecture with film clips, photos and history. It is being offered as a stand alone workshop for folks who are interested in the form.
