Created by the Bessie Award-winning artists of Third Rail Projects and presented by the Abrons Arts Center, the Steampunk Haunted House, 2009–2011, was an annual integration of contemporary installation, dance, and performance art, and an accessible, fun, utterly breathtaking experience. Unlike traditional haunted houses that rely on gore or graphic violence to horrify their patrons, this immersive theatrical event chilled, delighted, and terrified its audience without showing a single drop of blood.
