About The Ritual

Do you dream of being a vampire? Steffen Hånes does too. Come to “The Ritual”, where this chaotically playful idiot charms the audience in his hilarious attempts to terrify them.

Gaulier-trained Hånes looks rather serious - tall, dark and nordic. You may feel scared at first only to be pleasantly surprised by his ridiculousness. If you like Dracula, Mr Bean and laughing your arse off, then this show is for you.

This is an invitation into the chamber of a ‘real’ vampire - do you dare to accept? Blood spills, the Banshee howls, let the ritual commence.

‘Steff is from Norway where everything is frozen’ - Philippe Gaulier

‘A clever interpretation of clowning’ - Audience review

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Ritual are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
