Crocus Hill Ghost Story
About the Artists
Zeitgeist is conjuring up a brand new show and we need your help to make it happen!
A collaboration between Zeitgeist, composer/flutist Julie Johnson, writer Cheri Johnson, and filmmaker/actor DJ Mendel, Crocus Hill Ghost Story is a macabre tale of a house possessed, accompanied by a wildly evocative and colorful score performed live by Zeitgeist, Johnson, and Mendel. Studio Z is transformed into a haunted Victorian mansion using real world set pieces, video, and projected images to tell the story of a Summit Avenue mansion with a disreputable past and unwelcome spirits.
In order to get this spooky sensation up and haunting, Zeitgeist needs to raise $6,000 by October 1st to create the video component, pay performers, and turn Studio Z into a real haunted house.
We received a Knight Arts Challenge grant for $26,300 and we need to raise that same amount from other sources in order to match this donation. We’ve already raised $20,300, but we need you — our generous donors, fellow artists, and audience — to scare up the rest.
