Blending hand made animation, live music and performance Golem is a dystopian fable for the twenty first century, which cleverly and satirically explores one of the great questions of the modern world – who or what is in control of our technologies? 

What we think:

This is a real 5-star musical stunner! It combines special effects with animation to tell the story of a man who lets technology take over his life! Let's face it, we're addicted to our phones and isn't it easier when technology does the thinking for us? Well this show will make you think again! Plus, it's a visual feast! Think Mighty Boosh meets League of Gentlemen meets Monty Python – and you’re halfway there!

The danger lies not in machine becoming more like man but in man becoming more like machine. Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invites you to take a step through the looking glass into a dark and fantastical tale of an extraordinary ordinary man.

Here's a clip the Guardian put together about the show:

Golem is the follow up to 1927’s hit international shows The Animals and Children took to the Streets and The Magic Flute (created in collaboration with Komische Opera Berlin).

A 1927 co-production with Salzburg Festival, Théâtre de la Ville Paris and Young Vic Theatre London.
