Tour: The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari
31/01/20 London SE1 9RY The Old Operating Theatre
Time: 7:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. * Doors will open at 6:15 PM for a 7:00 PM start. At a local carnival in a small German Town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding… The Cabinet of Dr Caligari makes use of the theatrical manner of stage and sets, but toys with the narrative device of flashback to tell its story. Like an old man telling us a tale, the mysterious narrator with his wide eyes, has his own backstory – and a memorable finale reveals all. The history of cinema harks back to few films that are as important and iconic as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari – the influence of this expressionist masterprice can be seen from Murnau’s Nosferatu through to The Third Man and even Batman Returns. The cinematic experience is a rare treat as the hand-painted backdrops and subtle face make-up can be seen up-close and appreciated in the way it was intended. This classic is scored by inspired live score musicians – the Cabinet of Living Cinema. This 100th year anniversary screening of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari is brought to life through the live score and the interactive playful nature as the film inspires timbre, harmony and texture. The Cabinet of Living Cinema create live cinema events in unusual and inspiring locations. They have scored films by Svankmajer, Jodorowsky, Fritz Lang, Eisenstein and Paradjanov using loop pedals, “found object foley” and orchestral instruments. The film will be a live musical performance over the original film. Sold Out
Tour: Visionary Boscombe
21/02/20 - 23/02/20 Boscombe Visionary Boscombe Devising Workshop
Time: 12:00pm. Admission: Free. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: The Old School House. In this series of workshops, Boscombe community members will co-create Visionary Boscombe: a community project led by young people exploring the historic Greek mythological figure Cassandra – cursed with the ability to see the future – and futurologist Boscombe resident Mary Shelley. Using the examples of how Cassandra and Shelley predicted the future, the creators use illustration, cinema, music and theatre to articulate how they see the world developing in the future, in terms of fast moving technology, communication platforms, AI and the climate crisis in a piece of “expanded cinema” in a pop-up space in Boscombe’s Sovereign Centre, May 2020. This project is part of BEAF (Bournemouth Emerging Arts Fringe), empowering young people and emerging creatives to become collaborators and participants in creative arts production. The following workshops have now been released! Curating Visionary Boscombe (Fri 21st Feb, The Old School House). All ages, all abilities.
