Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Thursday 18th–Friday 19th October 2012
Mary Henry is beautiful and vivacious. Having improbably survived a car wreck, she moves to a small town in Utah to begin her new job as a church organist. But something is wrong in middle America. Who is the man that follows her days and haunts her nights? What is it that draws her to the old deserted pavilion by the highway? And most of all, when will this nightmare end?
Praised for its stunning cinematography and dreamy surreal atmosphere, Herk Harvey’s 1962 stunning black and white horror film Carnival of Souls is given a fully re-imagined soundtrack, composed by musical madman Leon Radojkovic and performed by members of Dr Colossus, while brilliant actors including Fern Sutherland (Go Girls, Almighty Johnsons) and Cameron Rhodes breathe new life into the characters, and one daring Foley artist re-creates every sound effect, all live on stage, directed by theatrical troublemaker, Oliver Driver.
A hit show at the Auckland Arts Festival, Sydney Festival, Perth International Arts Festival and the Great Southern Festival, we are thrilled to be presenting this work in Nelson. This is a must-attend, multi-dimensional festival extravaganza.
