21 May 2007 Mountains In Madness Show Tales For Adults

20 May 2007, 19:47 - Art
A visual and musical stage-production based on the life and lyrics of the American poet H. P. Lovecraft takes place in Archa Theatre in Prague on 21 May. It bears the name Mountains in Madness Show and it is performed by the legendary English group The Tiger Lillies.

H.P. Lovecraft, born in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1890 was hardly known as an author during his lifetime. After his death his reputation as master of the macabre was immortalized and his work is considered a classic of horror.

The London trio The Tiger Lillies is the epitome of Black English humor, the dark shimmering sounds of a Tom Waits and the desires of Brechtian anti-heroes. The tales of ancient gods and lost souls are brought to life in a humorous and darkly melancholic fashion.

It is a concert, so there is no language barrier for English speaking visitors.
