‘The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown’ (H.P. Lovecraft)
“Horror” reflects on the nature of the fears harboured by human beings, so fearful of losing what makes them feel protected. In this play, which is very much a tribute to the films beloved by Jakop Ahlbom, such as The Shining (1980) by Stanley Kubrick, Rosemary’s Baby (1968) by Roman Polanski, Or Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) by Wes Craven, we will be transported to a terrifying and magical world, where audiences cannot help engaging with the characters, and will want to shout and laugh.
Born in 1971, the Swedish artist Jakop Ahlbom moved to Holland in the 90s to study Mime at the Amsterdam Academy of the Arts. Over the past decade, Ahlbom has developed his own theatrical trademark, combining theatre, mime, dance, music and the world of illusions. His company stands out for its ability to create productions with a powerful visual language, spectacular effects and a wonderfully wicked sense of humour.
