The danger lies not in machine becoming more like man, but in man becoming more like machine… Drawing on the myth of The Golem – the story of a man who fashions a creature out of clay to work for him – as a starting point, 1927 is creating an original production exploring man and his machines. <…>
Located in a fictional yet familiar world, where technology and the market economy have evolved to a point of transcending the boundaries of human control, Golem has become a must have, indispensible ingredient for a better life. But its very existence, threatens the prospect of those who created it. <…>
Completely synchronising live performance and music with stunning animation and film, Golem is the follow up to 1927’s hit international show The Animals and Children took to the Streets and The Magic Flute.
1927 conjure a world so complete it feels as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.
so distinctive and so original, so good-natured and so lacking in pretension, it defies the typical anxieties of influence and is only the glimpse of a truly transcendent talent on its way to a big-time audience.
