Synopsis

Creators of expanded cinema and interactive encounters, Compass Presents bring their award-winning restaging of 1920s gothic cult-horror silent movie, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari together with live music by Minima to Malta. Occupying the space between cinema curation, art, event production and interactive theatre Compass Presents has been creating mixed-artform events and shows since 2006. Inspired by the immersive power of cinema and the spine-tingle of live performance, they reimagine cult treasures and offer them to audiences afresh, mixing film with live elements, and to be experienced in strange locations. The Cabinet of Dr Caligari is a multidisciplinary – interdisciplinary evening, with audience interaction and a live score by Minima.


From a German township back in the early 1900s, a magical circus has travelled the crooked streets of time to present to you it’s curious wares. Whispered about across the decades, re-imagined inside the madhouses of Europe, dreamed in the night-visions of sleepwalkers…


Weaving together the visual elements is the soundscape of Minima’s avant-garde score, synthesising electric guitar, cello, bass, and drums into a fusion, which is at times psychedelic, with movements that are beautiful and haunting.
