Griegol 3
The Griegol, with Trick of the Light theatre

The Griegol

— An eerie, elegant tale without words about death, love, and monsters.

After their grandmother passes away, a child suspects they are being pursued by the smoke demon shapeshifter of the old woman’s stories. The Griegol is a gorgeously rendered dark fantasy for older children and adults. Drawing from the techniques of silent film, it combines silhouettes, smoke, puppetry, live music, and live animation. With the operation kept in sight, audiences see both the stage effects and how they are made. Combining hi-fi with lo-fi technology, and the mythic with the everyday, The Griegol is a charming, moving, and wildly inventive new work from Trick of the Light Theatre.
