By Little Ones Theatre after Bram Stoker, Produced by Theatre Works and Little Ones Theatre, 2015.
A high camp homage to silent cinema, horror and the ultimate queer hero, The Prince of Darkness.
From acclaimed company, Little Ones Theatre, comes a new theatrical event recreates the Silent Film experiences of the early 20th Century live on stage. Gothic and erotic, this non-verbal theatrical exploration takes Bram Stoker's novel into the realm of physical theatre. Highly stylised with an entirely original score and references to New Order, Bauhaus and Smokey Robinson, this Dracula is part Buster Keaton, part Bela Legosi, and a large part Kenneth Anger.
An extravaganza inspired by the cinematic evolution of one of literature’s most intriguing queer figureheads, Dracula played a sold out season at Theatre Works in St Kilda, was critically acclaimed and made it into The Age's Year In Review 2015. Dracula was also nominated for a 2015 Green Room Award for Best Direction- Stephen Nicolazzo.
