From 1897 to 1962 the Grand Guignol horror theatre of Paris thrilled audiences with gory spectaculars that would give birth to today’s horror film genre. Performed in an over-the-top melodramatic style, Grand Guignol by today’s standards lends itself to comedy, but is also gritty and nightmarish enough to keep audiences squirming in their seats and shielding their eyes.

In this workshop we will create larger-than-life characters ranging from the criminally insane (and their victims) to mad doctors who calmly carry out horrific operations in the name of medicine. We will learn to make gory special effects (which we will use excessively–Blood will flow! Heads will roll!) and explore how sound effects can make our frightful reenactments all the more cringe inducing.
