The spirit of Halloween can
definitely be captured in An Evening
With Aleister Crowley featured this
week by the Performance Network.
In a combination of drama, dance,
and song, Harvey Zook has adapted
the short stories of occultist and
magician Aleister Crowley for the
stage. Providing an almost
Hitchcock-esque experience, Zook
has entwined comedy, mystery, and
horror for a very devilish production.
"The Strategem," one of the
featured works, presents the audience
with the situation of being stranded
on a lonely train platform with a
self-confessed murderer who insists
on declaring his horrifying desires.
Using a manipulative stage and
Zook successfully provides
goosebumps for the entire audience.
Next, "The Testament of Magdalen
"lair" explores the power of psychic
communication within the living
world and underworld. Staged on an
angular black and white set, this
work also features a score composed
by Martin Simmons as well as a
dancing chorus of demons.
An Evening With Aleister
Crowley is created by La!, an
ensemble of actors, writers,
musicians, and choreographers.
Though this is their first full-length
production, La! staged Scherzo for Z
at the Network last January and At
the Laundromat for the 25th annual
Ann Arbor film festival. These
works portray the early 20th century
writer's infamous and off-beat
perspective on religion and the
occult. Moreover, these works
describe Crowley's view of "a world.
peopled and manipulated by demons,
a world that reverberates with an
eerie, almost familiar chord in La!'s
