Described by its creators as “a playful medley of cryptomythological fiction, pantheons, bestiaries, comics, art, games, readings, performances, and more,” the LOST MYTHS website is also a surreal, kooky and often ingenious live show, a compilation of bizarre short stories that purport to reveal forgotten histories of our world. Like that of the ominous god of dreams who subjugates humanity’s nightmares. Or of the Hippacotora, “a horned biped with the head of a cow, sharp talons for feet and a giant third eye where her left breast should be,” currently striving to make it as a living statue in Barcelona. Learn the real story behind that guy at the bar who seems to have always been there. Perhaps he has!

The stories were written by local fantasist Claude Lalumière, author of the acclaimed recent collection “Objects of Worship,” who will be performing them live as a master storyteller of the strange—accompanied by the eye-popping artwork of illustrator Rupert Bottenberg, a gifted jack-of-all-trades (Montreal Mirror music editor, Montreal Comics Jam founder, co-director of the En Masse art initiative and co-editor of the very program you’re currently reading). Lalumière and Bottenberg launched LOST MYTHS this past April, first and foremost as a weekly web event, but have recently taken the show on the road, performing their tenebrous tales in Montreal and abroad. It’s one hell of a journey.
