Scor­ing Golem in Kilkenny

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Last year, our friends at 3ep­kano, the ex­per­i­men­tal mu­sic col­lec­tive, de­lighted at­ten­dees at the Kilkenny Arts Fes­ti­val with their ac­com­pa­ni­ment to a screening of The Cab­i­net of Dr Cali­gari. This year, the group teams up with Iarla Ó Lionáird, the gifted singer, to pro­vide mu­sic for an un­spool­ing of Paul We­gener’s Der Golem (1920). Co-di­rected with Carl Boese, the Ger­man film fol­lows the cre­ation of that myth­i­cal beast in the Jewish quar­ter of Prague. Fea­tur­ing a mem­o­rable lead turn by We­gener, the film was a huge influence on James Whale’s Franken­stein a decade later. Catch this ex­cit­ing event at St Can­ice’s Cathe­dral on Wed­nes­day at 9.30pm. kilken­n­yarts.ie.
