Is a Ouija board the closest you’ve gotten to crossing to ‘the other side’? Check out our gallery from new immersive show Let’s Summon Demons, which is written and performed by former witch Katy Schutte andcoming to VAULT Festival from 13 to 17 March 2019. Time to get booking… if you dare!
Let’s Summon Demons is a semi-immersive folk horror play, performed in the round. It examines our attitudes to ritual, to revenge and to the uprising of female power. Can community lead to mob mentality? What are ghosts and demons and do they come from below or from within? If you stare into the abyss, can you come back?
Audiences are invited to join Katy Schutte‘s coven for one night to encounter comedy, folk horror and – perhaps – some demons. The production is directed by John Henry Falle.
When she was in her early 20s, writer/performer Katy was in a working coven, where she became a third degree Gardnerian/Alexandrian witch. Her grandmother owned and ran a (haunted) Bed & Breakfast in Wales where the dog would bark at nobody on the stairwell and guests complained of hands around their neck in Room 4. Katy is a Funny Women finalist and her last show Schutte the Unromantic was nominated for the 2018 Best Comedy Show Latest Award at Brighton Fringe. Katy is a world-renowned improviser, a member of Knightmare Live, creator and star of the Ghostbusters musical Who Ya Gonna Call? and improviser in the award-winning Maydays.
