it lives in my bedroom

by Mily Mumford

it lives in my bedroom is a heightened “art house horror” immersive theatre and multimedia experience, explores how survivors of sexualized violence with PTSD navigate subsequent relationships from a queer, gender diverse and trans survivor’s voice and perspective. The audience is led through a maze of rooms akin to a haunted house experience to be transported into the narrative.

Unscripted: it lives in my bedroom
Enjoy a research party meets “horror salon” where you can interact with new media installations. Get a sneak peek into the story, aesthetic and immersive quality of the piece. There will also be a panel conversation with horror creatives and mental health professionals digging into the psychology of the horror genre and how it can be used as a controlled way to process our inner fears. Grab a non-alcoholic drink from our patio bar (dress warmly!) and put on your lab coat  to contribute to our research to see what scares YOU.
