What is it?
Stormy House, a new walk-in video and audio installation that immerses the visitor in the ghostly world of Wuthering Heights, will premier in Haworth this month.
The work is the latest project from Whitestone Arts and forms part of the Brontë Parsonage Museum’s celebrations for the bicentenary of the birth of Emily Brontë.
Visitors are invited to enter a space inspired by Japanese tea house architecture, created by 59 Productions, the video-design team behind the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. Once inside, visitors will encounter multiple projections telling stories through shadow play, landscape and sound.
The Stormy House installation explores links between the spirit-world elements of Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and ancient Japanese ghost tales or ‘kaidan’, collected and translated into English by 19th century author Patrick Lafcadio Hearn.
