H.P. Lovecraft's Polaris

H.P. Lovecraft's Polaris


1920. In a Louisiana swamp, a man disturbed by recent events and too afraid to sleep begins to relive his nightmare. All around, there is a strange aurora of light. The man anxiously stares into the dark sky above and through the vapour-soaked trees the pole star, Polaris, winks hideously striving to convey some strange message of the man’s ancient, ancestral past.Falling under the star’s hypnotic spell, he travels through dreams of twisted realities finally arriving at a threatened city in a strange, pre-historic, arctic land. Torn between identities and struggling to hold on to an ever crumbling sanity, the man must defend the city and his own sense of self as an unseen enemy draws ever nearThe horror of a reality shattered and an existence in turmoil sets the stage for Michael Sabbaton’s latest adaptation from the chilling mind of H.P. Lovecraft. Performed and devised by Sabbaton himself and originally written in 1918, Polaris is the first in Lovecraft’s dream cycle. Boundaries between time and space are warped and worlds, at first clear and defined, become malleable and strange in this cult, science-fiction horror predating other,contemporary works such as Moon, Prometheus and Total Recall.
