Do you like stories that make the hairs stand up at the back of your neck? Sam Enthoven’s SHIVERS nights have been giving aficionados that sensation of spiders down the spine for almost four years now.
Sam picks and adapts the finest frightening literature and finds great performers to read it. The twist with SHIVERS is that these tales are then paired with live sounds from his uniquely uncanny instrument the theremin and other disconcerting audio devices. The result is a kind of cinema for the ears and imagination, with storytelling and sound combining to draw you irresistibly in, to reach cold fingers into your mind, to give you SHIVERS.
SHIVERS is especially thrilling in unusual venues that add to the atmosphere of the stories – which makes The Grant Museum of Zoology a perfect place for it! Following the sellout success of Sam’s previous show there in February 2019 now SHIVERS returns at last for a Halloween rendition of William Hope Hodgson’s maritime mycelial monster tale The Derelict. Jim Osman will read. Live illustration / animation will be performed by artist Andrea Aste. Join us for what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
