Compagnie 1927 Cie

Golem  creation - french premiere
In English, French subtitles

with the support of British Council



MAN AND HIS DOUBLE
For the Compagnie 1927, founded by Paul Barritt, who directs animation movies, and comedian and writer Suzanne Andrade, the Golem, a legendary figure and fantastical creature made by Man in his image, becomes the starting point for a story of our times. It deals with the relationship between a man and his virtual double, who gets completely uncontrollable, in a world dominated by technology and financial markets.

 

Organized within the framework of the Tandem Paris-London 2015, operated by l'Institut français and the city of Paris, with the support of the city of London and British Council

  


This funny, unsettling and unforgettable satire from the theatre company 1927 is a Frankenstein for the 21st century. The Times

Paul Barritt’s animation is a source of constant delight. (…) The show is undeniably clever. It is full of treasurable individual moments. The Guardian

Dazzling ! You won't find funnier or more dazzlingly synchronised interaction between live performance and a crazily satiric animated world than in Golem. The Independent

this visually astonishing, intellectually invigorating show. The story has a child's picture-book simplicity…My 13-year-old son, who's rarely to be found off-line, was absolutely hooked. Daily Telegraph

Once it's over, your head spins with a thousand images'. It's Kafka meets Little Shop of Horrors… Five deft performers achieve extraordinary levels of detail and never miss a beat in 90 minutes of carefully choreographed interplay with Paul Barritt's dazzling animations. Rose Robinson and Esme Appleton as the women in Robert's life present an array of impeccably defined characters, while Lillian Henley supplies a rich complementary score that ranges from Satiesque doodles to super-naff punk band Annie and the Underdogs, and she and fellow-actor Will Close nip away from the action every few minutes to play it live on keyboard and drums.
What’s on stage
 
The precision with which the actors synchronise with the animation is an unending delight. It’s unlike anything you will have experienced before. Evening standart
