In a time before haunted house mazes and modern day Halloween…
In a time before film and photography…

Audiences hungered for horror-fueled entertainment, eagerly willing to pay anyone who would satisfy their needs to be scared for a night with friends.
And so there was the Phantasmagoria.
—-

Here The Birds Burn is a revival of this early form of visual entertainment, meant to guide modern audiences into experiencing one of the first antecedents to today’s cultural love of all things macabre. The Phantasmagoria was a form of early horror theater. With the use of magic lanterns and optical illusions ghosts and other apparitions were conjured, the lines of science and magic were blurred, and life and death were explored through both spectacle and discussion.

Incorporating working authentic 18th & 19th century magic lanterns with hand painted glass slides, along with being joined by fellow period-era theater guests, this immersive performance, set in the 1830s, promises an evening of frightful delight. Performed at the Heritage Square Museum, guests will traverse through multiple Victorian-era historical homes throughout the performance.
