THEATRE DU GRAND-GUIGNOL Lecture
THEATRE DU GRAND-GUIGNOL:
From Shakespeare to Grindhouse: the history, influences, and its legacy.
Savage Rose Classical Theatre Company | lecture by J. Barrett Cooper

Exploring the rich history of the genre of horror and terror, this lecture looks into the history of the Theatre Grand Guignol; how it took its cue from the "naturalistic" theatre of its own time and that of Shakespeare and the Jacobeans revenge plays 400 years earlier. The lecture will also examine the stage practices of the time; secrets to mixtures of blood and special effects that were so private that many were kept in safes. Also the lecture will touch upon the influence it had on the B-Movies and Grindhouse films and Quentin Tarantino.
