In an eerie house, where floorboards creak and shadows lurk in long forgotten corners, live two strange men - brothers, bitter enemies.... Cain and Abel. Cain stalks around a house alive with mischief, inventing ingenious ways to do away with his little brother. Poor Abel awakes each morning to find himself reborn, unscathed. With their sinister and overbearing mother, Eve, dabbling with creation, this squabbling household finds itself ensnared in a fiendish and fantastical tale that scampers and tumbles towards a startling end.
ŒSthe most auspicious, exciting and playful theatre company in the region right now1
(Artscene – Yorkshire)
In a mesmerising piece that sees the buffoonery of Laurel and Hardy dipped in the atmosphere of Poe, Cain and Abel takes a gripping look at the darker side of family ties, sibling rivalry, the question of nature versus nurture and human cloning.
'...packed with many delicious, imaginative tricks, weaving a world of dark fairytale.' (BBC Bradford)
Twisted I combine dynamic physicality, puppetry, creative music technology, extended vocal techniques with a set filled with trickery to produce a textless, visual and aural storytelling theatre style to blow your mind. Cain and Abel fluctuates between the grotesque, the comic, the darkly atmospheric and the surreal.
We hope you find the experience unpleasantly enjoyable!
