‘…one of the most fascinating concert experiences I‘ve had.’ State

Following
last year’s sell-out success of ‘Der Golem’, Christ Church Cathedral is delighted to welcome back acclaimed,
eclectic music ensemble, 3epkano, performing a live score to the legendary
Gothic classic, ‘The  Cabinet of Dr
Caligari’.

A
huge commercial and critical success in its day, it is one of the most
influential films of the German Expressionist movement and considered the first
true horror film as well as introducing the ‘twist ending’ in cinema. It was
inspired by the unsolved murder of a girl during a carnival and was directed by
acclaimed German director Robert Wiene with renowned Expressionist designers
Hermann Warm, Walter Roehrig and Walter Reimann, all affiliated to the magazine
Sturm and who created the innovative painted sets that included distorted
perspectives, twisted shapes and sharp angles.

The
film tells the tale of showman, Dr Caligari (Werner Krauss), who appears in a
small town with his marvel, Cesare the Somnambulist (Conrad Veidt), a man who
has been asleep for 23 years and is now under Caligari’s murderous, hypnotic
control. At night, he slithers through the town murdering people on the
doctor‘s orders until a young student becomes suspicious when his friend is
found dead. As a series of disturbing events unfold, the townspeople discover a
truth, hiding something even more sinister then they could ever have imagined.

3epkano
are a Dublin based collective, formed by Cameron Doyle and Matthew Nolan, who
are dedicated to producing original soundtracks to silent, avant-garde, and
contemporary cinema. Since 2004, the group have played numerous headline shows
in both Ireland and the US to huge critical acclaim.

Doors
