Alix sits in front of props, including a skeleton, a picture frame, lamp and open suitcase. He holds the hand of an illuminated ghost, which is holding a pumpkin lantern. Alix has curly brown hair and stares intensely.

Grim Grinning Ghosts

On a day after grief, one lonely artist is left to wade through the belongings of some dead relatives, only to find they have walked into an otherworldly intervention. In a one-of-a-kind choreographic séance, the audience will be guided into the afterlife of those living, and deceased. Horrific? Yes! Sad? Absolutely! This solo work is one that will stay with you; it might even follow you home…

Created and performed by Alix Kuijpers, winner of the 2023 Adelaide Fringe Emerging Artist Award.

“It is exciting to witness emerging artists who are both talented and perceptive: Kuijpers is obviously a deep thinker and definitely a person of many talents.” Stage Whispers
