A theatre performance based on HP Lovecraft's short story, using multimedia video projection, mask, surrealistic movement, storytelling, and a haunting mix of original and existing music.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft's darkly intense 1921 story is of a young man who recalls his days as an impoverished student in a dismal, anonymous city in Europe. While residing in a decrepit apartment building in a mysterious district called the Rue d'Auseil, he befriends an old German viol-player named Erich Zann, who lives on the floor above. As the young man discovers Zann's inhuman music emanating from the upper rooms, he descends into a world of obsession, madness, and a terrifying presence from an alternate realm.
