The past comes back. Enter the horror.

Steve is a young man with a bright future. When he meets Lola, he develops the ability to contact his long dead twin, who died during war. Steve's parents have a pact not to talk about the twin, but each of them dreams of encountering him.

The Dead Twin re-imagines the horror genre as an immersive, cyclical, site-specific performance.

In producing the work, Chi Vu has put together an ensemble that comprises some of Australia’s most exciting artists and performers including Deborah Leiser-Moore, Jacques Soddell, Naomi Ota, Davina Wright, Harry Tseng and Daniel Han.

'A moving and thoughtful response to the issue of war... genuine theatricality that also hits us in the solar plexus. Experimental but accessible... emotionally powerful' Time Out on KaBoom

'A gutsy expression by a wonderfully seasoned theatre maker, this work is unique, empowering and totally worth seeing' Stage Whispers on Cordelia, Mein Kind
