This is a screening of the silent 1923 movie, Salomé, accompanied by a new score specially written by composer Charlie Barber.
The music will be performed live by four percussionists playing from two giant towers placed on either side of the big screen. This film, with its incredibly extravagant costume and set designs along with the highly stylised (and very camp!) acting make it unlike anything else you’ll see in a cinema.
Add to that the dramatic percussion score which really pulsates with energy and the excitement of a live performance and you can look forward to a particularly ‘theatrical’ night at the pictures!
The film is an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde play.
