An experimental, radically re-cut and almost unrecognisable version of the silent 1922 film ‘Häxan (Witchcraft through the Ages)’, ‘The Häxan Curse’ meddles stunning early cinema scenes of witches and cunning folk from history with bizarre new subtitles into an absurdist black comedy with a biting edge. Conceived by emerging Melbourne visual artist, designer & musician Giosuè Prochilo, it also premieres an accompanying live performance of an original score of atmospheric, rock-infused electronica. Showing at Melbourne’s Revolt Artspace, ‘The Häxan Curse’ is a unique, visually and sonically intense, must-see show that slyly lurks in shadows of the 2012 Melbourne Fringe.

Only when the curse is revealed, can it be lifted.
