Haunted When It Rains

I said to my soul, be still, and let the dark come upon you...

as in a theater,

the lights are extinguished

For the scene to be changed

With a hollow rumble of wings,

With a movement of darkness on darkness...

 

...So the darkness shall be the light

And the stillness the dancing...

 

---T. S. Eliot

Haunted When It Rains  is a mediated theater event exploring the possibilities technology provides to expand the performance of myth.  Inspired by the Victorian Sťance, Haunted seeks to stage a realm of vision, interacting with technology to manifest a performance present with ghosts and persistent memories.
