Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue SeaT159444848
An ingeniously dark and strangely beautiful blend of fractured fairytales and silent film homage unfolds as 1927 takes its audience on a deliciously surreal journey through enchanting, skewed and often sinister landscapes. Using the aesthetic of silent film, a series of comic vignettes are revealed as live performers interact seamlessly with animation and film. Hapless cats, marauding gingerbread men and cross-dressing devils all make an appearance, not to mention the sinister twins and their misfortunate guests. The show has been compared to Shockheaded Peter, David Lynch, and Edward Gorey, with a twist of Weimar cabaret; 1927
