Demonology is theater from Hell, an hour for AntiMatter to employ the theatrical arts in the service of Dark Powers. The Dreams in the Witch House is adapted and directed by Will Fulton from a 1932 H.P. Lovecraft novella of the same name. A fragile-minded graduate student is slowly driven insane by his simultaneous study of quantum physics and sinister folklore, and gradually consumed by his increasingly horrible dreams. The story is told through a unique blend of live actors and breathtaking shadow-puppetry. sixsixsix, a new play by Gregory S. Moss and directed by Dan Rogers, is a contemporary remapping of the Faust legend, combining elements of Marlowe’s text, Czech marionette theater, and Jan Svankmejer’s 1994 film Faust. Part revenge tragedy, part diabolically comic black ritual, sixsixsix is a taut, menacing and innately theatrical metaphysical thriller. It originally was premiered by AntiMatter in Prague as part of the AXA in Action Festival.
