STYX, Tottenham Hale, 2017

The earthquakes are coming and we’re eating white fish and mashed potatoes. An ancient, damaged shapeshifter known as the Skriker, torments two women’s lives.


“Gruff have managed to conjure a feeling of constant yet ellusive threat. We don’t know what it is we’re afraid of, but we’re afraid of something, and so we laugh nervously all the way through.”
