Dementia 13Live Live Cinema
Live actors, musicians & a sound artist bring cult cinema to life in a fusion of performance and film that will have you screaming in fear and shrieking with laughter!
Before The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, there was Dementia 13. Revered cinema auteur Francis Ford Coppola’s 1963 directorial debut Dementia 13 is a gem of gothic horror made on a shoestring budget, with a script penned overnight then shot in nine days. This is B-Grade cinema at its very best.
New Zealand’s Live Live Cinema, a crew of actors and musicians led by musical madman Leon Radojkovic and directed by Oliver Driver, perform live on stage as the film screens above them. The musicians create a rich atmospheric score that buoys the actors’ captivating live performance of the script as a Foley artist creates every creeping footstep and murderous axe blow live on stage. This is better than the movies, this is cinema in 4-D!
