Upon dying, Maria Macabre is not granted eternal slumber, but instead a whirling, kaleidoscopic carnival of horrors: a morbid funhouse where humanity is stripped away and a permanent place in the gruesome chorus line is all but assured. The Tragedy of Maria Macabre is a ghoulish movement and visual based theater piece that uses dancers and physical actors to create a world of fantasy and spectacle. It is a work of theater, dance, and performance art.
The Tragedy of Maria Macabre stars Abigail Hawk, Elizabeth Stewart, Michael Porsche, Danielle Marie Fusco, Eric Schmalenberger, Megan O’Connor, Preston Burger, Freddy Mancilla, and Brian Rubiano.
