Rogue Festival

by Christopher Alocern


Victorian Seance Revisited is a theatrical representation of a traditional nineteenth-century seance. I created the show in order to share with the general public what it feels like to be in a traditional seance. The seance as we perceive it today was born in the United States in the 1850s and is an important piece of American history. I attended my first seance with my grandparents when I was five.

About three years ago I got the idea to write a one-man show. I had been reviewing and attending Rogue Festival performances for a few years, and since I also did theatre, I figured why not give it a try? It wasn’t until a year or so later I started formulating the structure and content of what a one-man show about me would look like.

I’ve been touring with one-man shows pretty much non-stop for eighteen years now. Mostly I do classical material: Shakespeare, Molière, a collection of the Greatest Speeches of all time. But in 2017, something happened which changed my life, and sent me off on a new track that I never anticipated.

It was my first time.
They said I was ready, but I was unsure. I was nervous. Hell, when it comes down to it, I was kind of scared. Not that I hadn’t done some things, played around a bit. But this…this was big. My FIRST time. I had heard about the nightmares, the things that could go wrong. But so much could go right.
