Golem (UK)

A VISUALLY TRIPPY MODERN FRANKENSTEIN TALE


A TECHONOLOGICAL MUST HAVE

GOLEM is located in a futuristic and yet throw back, familiar world, where technology and the market economy have evolved to transcend the boundaries of human control. Golem is a manmade creature formed out of clay and made to work for the humans. The clay servant has become a must have, indispensable ingredient for a better life. But its very existence, threatens the prospect of those who created it. The danger lies not in the machines becoming more like man but in man becoming more like the machines.

UNIQUE AND VISUALLY STUNNING SHOW

Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invites audiences to take a step through the looking glass into a dark and fantastical tale of an extraordinary ordinary man. Blending 1927’s synthesis of handmade animation, claymation, live music and performance GOLEM is a dystopian fable for the 21st century, which cleverly and satirically explores one of the great questions of the modern world – who or what is in control of our technologies? Get ready to get lost in this bizarre and funny modern Frankenstein tale.
