Belt Up Theatre presents
By Dominic J Allen after Franz Kafka
Following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, EIF award winners, Belt Up Theatre bring their nightmarish and disorientating vision of Kafka’s classic to the Southwark Playhouse.
A haunting theatrical incarnation lifts Kafka’s words from the page and inhabits them in the labyrinthine world under London Bridge. Get lost alongside Josef K as he struggles to make sense of the nonsensical bureaucratic monster that preys on him.
Set to an original score of blues piano and drum and bass, The Trial will plunge you into a claustrophobic atmosphere and leave you at its mercy as Josef K hurtles towards his inexplicable fate.
Due to the nature of the piece, audience members should be prepared to walk and stand on uneven surfaces. The performance space is cold so please dress warmly.
“exhilarating, ambitious and manipulates sound, space and the audience with real verve”
“disorientating, triumphant nightmare”
