Two leaps made for Splatter (Catalyst Arts 1996) at the unoccupied Crawfordsburn House, County Down, Northern Ireland. The house has a rich history - having being used as a convalesce home for soldiers returning from the front in WW1. It is also is reputed to be haunted. Splatter took place at Halloween - it was an 24 hour event of interventions, performances, readings, music etc.
