Chapel Perilous is a metaphor for a dimension beyond the time/space continuum
where living souls are projected, catapulting out of Body, spinning repetitive rituals of
worship until they return to their human embodiment.  This is a sometimes harrowing,
somewhat hilarious, ghost story of how our greatest obsessions express whatever
we have made into gods or religions, whether we're aware of it or not, And where
escape is nowhere guaranteed yet always beckoning...always a possibility.”
- Antero Alli, director

We are an intermedia physical theatre group combining ritual dynamics,
vocal incantations, improvised and composed music & songs, film, and
poetry to explore the metaphysical dimensions of human experience.
We don't do social or political or morality issues, nor do we perform
conventional stage plays. We aim to incite visceral and spiritual
resonances in the audience, arousing the Poetic Imagination
from its deep cultural sleep. - Antero Alli
