Embrace the Darkness: The Gothic Imagination & the Meaning of Horror

Embrace the Darkness: The Gothic Imagination & the Meaning of Horror

Reading & Performance by Steven Dark, premiered Thursday October 24, 2013 at Le Boudoir, Cimburkova, Prague 3, Zizkov when Le Boudoir played host to Steven Dark and an exploration of the Gothic Imagination and the meaning of Horror. Conceived in the 18th century as a revival of the medieval romance, modern thematic legacy of Gothic fiction includes horror, romance and fantasy while the aesthetics of the movement have expanded even further afield.

Writer, actor and Voice Over artist, Steven Dark's presentation aims to challenge our conceptions of 'light' and 'dark' and their usual associations with the polarities of Light as Life, God and Goodness and the Dark as Death, the Devil and Evil. Part talk, part poetry, part performance, the evening opens up for everyone to chat, drink, browse the shop and ogle as they see fit.
