Fundación Épica

Innsmouth is an intensive workshop where a group of students from the Danish arts school Kulturentreprenør spend two weeks at the Èpica Foundation to work on The Shadow Over Innsmouth by H. P. Lovecraft.

The objective is to make a final performance inspired by the story, more with the intention of basing it on the ideas and sensations present in the text than to make a literal adaptation. Elements such as the sensation of constant danger, the different versions of the same story, rituals with sacrifice and creatures from under the sea will serve as a basis from which to develop scenes. Given that the duration of the workshop is reduced, the students received and read the story in advance, thus facilitating the whole group to share an imaginary on which to base their performance from the first brainstormings.
