Between The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
1927’s multiple award-winning show cleverly combines live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation. An ingenious blend of fractured fairytales and silent film unfolds as the audience go on a surreal journey through enchanting, skewed and sinister landscapes.
A series of comic scenes unfold in which live performers interact seamlessly with animation and film. Hapless cats, marauding gingerbread men and cross-dressing devils all make an appearance. Variously compared to Shockheaded Peter, David Lynch, and Edward Gorey with a twist of Weimar cabaret, 1927’s world is however totally unique. A delicate, deadly delight.
