    The protagonist Robert is a programmer who has to code all day long at work. He’s never been in a love relationship and his only joy is playing guitar with his mates in the basement. But one day, he gets hold of a clay puppet named ‘Golem’, which transforms Robert’s fate entirely.

    Lauded as ‘one of the future faces of theater’ with its style of uniquely integrating animation and live performance, the young British company ‘1927’ is coming to Korea. This group consists of a peculiar combination of members, including animator, writer, pianist, and actor. The group won 5 awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007 with their hit debut Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. The second creation The Animals & Children took to the Streets marked a world success, followed by Magic Flute created together with Komische Oper Berlin. For Magic Flute, ‘1927’ replaced traditional opera stage sets with a creative and unique stage using animation, winning the ‘Best Design’ award at The International Opera Awards.

    Golem is an outstanding work of ‘1927’, meticulously combining its specialty of animation, live music, and performance. Since its premiere in 2014, the work has been on a world tour, receiving rapturous reviews. Golem was inspired by a novel of the same title written by Gustav Meyrink, but was completely recreated by the group’s writer, Suzanne Andrade. The Golem in the hands of the protagonist Robert could be perhaps a metaphor of our smartphones in today’s society. This work not only offers visual pleasure through an impressive synthesis of animation and live performance but also raises a poignant satire on the modern world, questioning ‘who controls what in this technosociety’. As you turn on your smartphone on the way out of the theater, what thoughts will cross your mind?
