ADULTERATED TALES FESTIVAL EVENT
KELLERMAN is a gothic tale of obsessive desire, demonic doctors and monstrous nurses, a story that explores how meddling with the past can have tragic consequences and how the search for origins can lead to the mind’s disintegration. Combining film, animation and live action, it is a moving, accessible new performance by the creators of the critically acclaimed Hotel Methuselah.
Diagnosed as delusional, Harry is in a hospital where he’s struggling to come to terms with a tragedy that nobody believes has taken place. His notebooks are filled with calculations that attempt to show the past can be manipulated and the future predicted. Can he prove everyone wrong by changing the order of events that led to the disappearance of everything he loved?

And as an added extra: itd company member Simon Wainwright is also in the band Hope&Social, and wrote a number of songs for the Kellerman soundtrack. Before their Glastonbury performance in June, a stripped-down band present a free Nuffield foyer set, after the show on Thursday 30 April.
KELLERMAN, by the creators of Hotel Methuselah, is supported by Arts Council England and has been commissioned by ICIA, Bath, Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster and Cochrane Theatre, London. It has also been supported by Leeds Metropolitan University Gallery and Studio Theatre, Lantern House and Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Arts.
