“A show that oozes technical accomplishment, and there's no doubt, with a debut as slick as this, that these young artists have a bright future ahead of them.” The Age, Melbourne
1927 is a London based performance company that specialise in combining performance and live music with animation and film to create magical filmic theatre. Celebrated at home and overseas, the Company was founded in 2005 by Writer, Performer & Director Suzanne Andrade and Animator & Illustrator Paul Barritt. In 2006, Performer & Costume Designer Esme Appleton and Performer, Composer & Musician Lillian Henley joined and in 2007, Producer Jo Crowley began collaborating with the company. All four creative members of 1927 come from different artistic backgrounds, and it is the collaboration between these artists and the complete integration of artistic disciplines, that has paved the way for 1927 to create it’s unique, innovative and highly original work.
At the heart of 1927’s practice is the desire to explore the relationship between live actor and animation to create dynamic and innovative live theatre. 1927 fuse, merge and mix creative mediums to create a unique performance style. The company has developed an approach to combining the mediums of film, performance and music to great effect, both technically and conceptually; pushing the forms the company works in to new and exciting places. 1927 has mastered a delicate marriage of live music, animation, film, performance and song – taking disparate elements and making them work in harmony to create unique theatrical experiences.
Tamino in the belly of the dragon, the Queen of the Night as a giant spider, dancing constellations and flying butterfly boys – the fascination The Magic Flute exerts over both young and old audience members at the Komische Oper Berlin seems endless.
And not only in Berlin: over 450,000 people around the world have seen this critically and commercially acclaimed production by the British theatre group “1927” and Barrie Kosky, with its »deliciously absurd blend of silent movie and cartoon« [Berliner Morgenpost]. After performances in Los Angeles, Madrid, Helsinki, Paris, Peking, Tokyo, Adelaide, Auckland, New York and many other cities around the world, this season it can also be enjoyed in Houston and Montreal – and in its home city Berlin, of course! »A dazzling live-action cartoon, so enchanting that it silences any critique.« [Los Angeles Times]
The Magic Flute appears to give rise to more questions and mysteries rather than provide answers. At the end the immense fantasy of this magical opera defies all logic and reason. Its secret lies in deeper layers of fundamental human experiences for which the fairytale appears simply to be the most adequate form of expression and only music finds the appropriate language. It is with good reason that the "eponymous hero" of the opera is an instrument, or quite simply: music.
