Nosferatu: A Fractured Symphony

Date: 25 Nov 2018

He’s the 1%. A spoilt aristocrat buying investment properties from overseas.

He’s a boat person. Invading our shores, bringing disease and death across the water. He’s a sexual predator. A perverted sadist corrupting the wives and daughters of everyone he meets. Count Orlock. The Vampyre. Mr. De Ville. Dracula. Nosferatu. He’s everyone’s favourite.

Blasting apart one of the most iconic films of the silent era, Montague Basement kicks off Old 505’s 2019 season with this new devised work. With nothing but fragments of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 film to work from, Nosferatu: A Fractured Symphony dares to imagine a world without Dracula and rebuilds that myth before our eyes.

Saro Lusty-Cavallari directs. Lucy Burke, Jeremi Campese, Lulu Howes and Annie Stafford feature.
