Chapel Perilous Productions

A creative entity exploring diverse art forms showcased in film, live performance, installation art collaborations and experimental theatre.


The term Chapel Perilous in literature has been defined as “the dangerous enclosure that is known in the study of traditional quest romances” (Thomas C. Foster); in Australian play right Dorothy Hewett’s autobiographical play (The Chapel Perilous) she uses “the framework of the Arthurian legend, Sir Lancelot, to create a theatrical quest of romantic and epic proportions”. The term can also refer to a psychological state in which an individual cannot be certain whether they have been aided or hindered by some force outside the realm of the natural world, or whether what appeared to be supernatural interference was a product of their own imagination.
