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 five 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 the finest artists from London’s experimental scene. 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.
Following the sell out success of previous shows at the Grant Museum of Zoology, SHIVERS returns with The Claw – a classic chiller concerning a certain island cult and their climactic crustacean celebration. Laura Sampson will read. Guest accompanist will be Sally Child on waterphone. Join us for what promises to be an unforgettable evening.
