Inspired by the spooky aesthetics of the 1922 seminal silent horror film Nosferatu, world renowned percussionist Tom Teasley weaves a tension-filled music soundtrack to accompany a screening of the film, blending percussion with a variety of sometimes unexpected musical instruments—all of which highlight the action and creepiness of the movie.
Nosferatu, said to be an archaic Romanian term synonymous with "vampire," is an unauthorized and unofficial movie adaptation of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula. The film's eerie, gothic feel and a chilling performance from Max Schreck as the vampire set the template for other horror films that followed.
Teasley will also perform a concert with improvisational violinist Stephen Nachmanovitch the night prior as part of a weekend residency at PVCC. The concert takes place on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m.
$8 adults, $6 seniors/students. Takes place in the Main Stage Theatre, V. Earl Dickinson Building.
