Dementia 13 – Launceston

The most terrifying experience of your life!


Before The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, there was Dementia 13.

Revered cinema auteur Francis Ford Coppola’s 1963 directorial debut Dementia 13 is a gem of gothic horror made on a shoestring budget, with a script penned overnight then shot in nine days. This is B-Grade cinema at its very best. New Zealand’s Live Live Cinema, a crew of actors and musicians led by musical madman Leon Radojkovic and directed by Oliver Driver, perform live on stage as the film screens above them. The musicians create a rich atmospheric score that buoys the actors’ captivating live performance of the script as a Foley artist creates every creeping footstep and murderous axe blow live on stage.

This is better than the movies, this is cinema in 4-D!

Presented by Ten Days by arrangement with Arts Projects Australia with support from Creative New Zealand’s Touring Australia Initiative, Launceston performances presented in association with Theatre North
