A NON-PROFIT 501(C)(3) HORROR THEATRE COMPANY IN DENVER FOR THE INFECTED
Yet A(nother) Night of Grand Guignol
Pandemic Collective presented Yet A(nother) Night of Grand Guignol as the closing show of our fourth season, back by popular demand! We can't help ourselves, we love a little over-the-top French horror theatre and so do our audiences. Highly stylized and steeped in gore, Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol was a Victorian theatre in Paris that specialized in showcasing the most outrageous, gory and shocking horror theatre in the world. Founded in melodrama, the Grand Guignol’s plays were meant to stun and terrorize audiences; and the theatre even boasted an on-staff doctor to resuscitate victimized patrons.This evening of Grand Guignol featured two short horror plays inspired by the legends of Slenderman and black-eyed children, and was underscored with live music by violinist Sarah Jylkka.
