Dr Caligari

29th Apr 2010 - 5:00pm

The Arts Centre

Artizani present Dr Caligari.

Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions.

The chaotic caravanserai of Dr Caligari arrives in town to perform its timeless cabaret and gets the audience to help create a unique outdoor auditorium.

The mysterious Dr Caligari presents his travelling cabinet of curiosities: freaks, oddities, eccentrics and acrobats are conjured out of thin air to entertain, but once out of the box refuse to disappear! The house band plays its hypnotic blend of music to stir the heart and send your feet leaping up to dance. The cabaret accelerates towards an extraordinary revolt in which performers and spectators turn on the twisted Caligari in a spectacular finale.

Recreating the shady underbelly of vaudeville and circus, by turns hilarious and tragic, this is an afternoon’s entertainment not to be missed!

The performance will take place out doors on the lawn in front of the main entrance to the University. Please dress suitably!
