Elephant Steps

Elephant Steps

Arcola Theatre · 20 AUG - 22 AUG

Part Of Grimeborn Opera Festival

Overview

The European premiere and 50th anniversary production of American avant garde theatre pioneers Richard Foreman and Stanley Silverman’s Elephant Steps, an occult, surrealist opera.

A multi-media rock-opera extravaganza where music, light, images, movement, graphics, films, incense, machinery, props and performers are incorporated into a spectacular mix.

If you like gangster films, rock bands, gypsy violinists, incense or The Sound Of Music then come and see Elephant Steps. Or if you prefer ragtime, silent movies, psychedelic lights or madrigals? You’ll find them in Elephant Steps too.

Critically-acclaimed avant garde auteur Patrick Kennedy draws inspiration from the work of David Lynch, Salvador Dali and Jean Cocteau for this highly anticipated premiere of Elephant Steps.

Live music, performed in English.

Critic reviews

Any darkness or menace is lost in an overwhelming, one-note ridiculousness that becomes dull very quickly
