Lovecraft Shivers

Do you like stories that make the hairs stand up at the back of your neck? Sam Enthoven’s SHIVERS nights have been giving aficionados that sensation of spiders down the spine for more than a year now. Sam picks and adapts the finest frightening literature and finds great performers to read it. The twist with SHIVERS is that these tales are then paired with live sounds from his uniquely uncanny instrument, the theremin, and some of the best up-and-coming artists from London’s experimental music scene. The result is a kind of cinema for the ears and imagination, with storytelling and sound combining to draw you irresistibly in, to reach cold fingers into your mind, to give you SHIVERS.

The stories of H.P. Lovecraft have, naturally, featured at previous SHIVERS nights. We’ve performed FROM BEYOND in the chapel of Abney Park Cemetery and DAGON in the hold of Spanish galleon The Golden Hinde. The opportunity, however, to put together a new all-Lovecraft SHIVERS for the festival that celebrates Horror’s dark prince himself is, like his legacy, irresistible.

We look forward to scaring you.
