A mysterious figure haunts an untamed Scottish island. No one is immune to the heightened campaign of fear and terror she pours onto those who cross her path. But what does that fear actually feel like and how did wanting to create a scary ghost story mean I ended up 60 meters underground in a watery cave?

The Fear of Fear wrestles with the emotion to try and understand what makes us afraid and why it doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.

Commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre and supported by Arts Council England and The Sir Barry Jackson Trust. Produced by Pippa Frith.
