About the event

The Front Room presents Octopuses and other Sea Creatures

Octopuses and other Sea Creatures delves deep into the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft and his mysterious tale ‘The Call of Cthulhu’ as we explore mankind’s fear and misuse of the Ocean. Expect sirens from the deep, sea shaped spoken words, maritime musical musings and devised dance set to poetry and phosphorescence film projections.

  • Helena Eflerova, multidisciplinary artist, whose work has included exploring the fusion of underwater live performance and video installation
