GHOSTS by Gemma Walker-Farren and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company

Sometimes the scariest stories are the ones we tell ourselves.

GHOSTS is about our relationship with fear and how it is an ‘ancient and otherworldly’ feeling. It is about the ghosts we carry with us and how we can sometimes be ghosts in our own lives.

Childhood fears to adult anxieties are woven together with Greek myths and ghostly tales. Incredible projections and soundscapes carry the audience seamlessly from claustrophobic bedrooms to the vast halls of Hades with horror and heartbreak in between.

  • Written and performed by Gemma Walker-Farren.
  • Directed by Tonya Sheina.
  • Sound, video and lighting design by Barry Davis.

Kindly supported in 2022 by Arts Council of Northern Ireland Creative Individual’s Resilience Fund; and previously supported by the ACNI Support for Individual Artists Programme.
