On February 8th, special effects and unsettling characters will recreate Victorian London on stage
In this third edition of ‘Nights of Fear and Mystery’, Ars Creatio presents ‘Pánico en la Niebla’ (Panic in the Fog), a dramatised reading in Spanish of stories set in Victorian London, which will be performed at 8pm on Saturday February 8th at the Vírgen del Carmen Cultural Centre.
There are four stories that describe the complex drama of power, politics and sexual danger that lurked in the depths of London at the end of the 19th century, written by Ambroise Bierce, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Arthur Conan Doyle.
‘Oil of Dog’, ‘the Mystery of Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde’ and ‘The Leather Funnel’ will be the tales, on this occasion adapted and and directed by José Manuel Pedrero, Eliseo Pérez and Javier Nieto, with the collaboration of the María del Ángel Dance Academy. It will be presented by none other than Jack the Ripper, played by Javi Nieto, with a mixture of social history and cultural critique, in a dramatisation of ‘Jack’s Women’, full of the atmosphere of Victorian London, where the old traditions of class and gender were questioned in public shows and the pages of the tabloids.
The show is not recommended for children under the age of 10.
