Admission by donation

Building on last year's Nightmare show the boys have developed their sound and poetry performance as well as asking fellow artist Anton Beaver to do a dedicated light performance to augment the show.

The work itself explores the strangeness of modern life — touching upon themes such as online dating, mummification, identity and tattoos. It is dark, humorous and questioning.
