GolemFollowing its successful run at the Young Vic last Christmas, Golem, a "satirical swipe at the iPad generation" (Telegraph), comes to Trafalgar Studios for a six week run this spring. Written and directed by Suzanne Andrade, this colourful and philosophical show from the theatre collective 1927 cleverly uses original animation blended with music and performance to question what happens when man and machine become intertwined. "A witty collision of knowingly antiquated aesthetics, wide-ranging cultural influences and modern-day sensibilities," says Dominic Cavendish, writing in the Daily Telegraph.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
