Drawing on Jewish folklore of the Golem — the story of a man who fashions a creature out of clay to work for him — as a starting point, 1927 has created an original production exploring man and his machines. 1927’s Golem is not a re-telling or adaptation of the Golem myth but an original story that examines the relationship between an extraordinary ordinary man, and his Golem…Located in a fictional yet familiar world, where technology and the market economy have evolved to a point transcending the boundaries of human control, Golem has become a must have, indispensable ingredient for a better life. But its very existence, threatens the prospect of those who created it. Golem is a co-production of 1927, Salzburg Festival, Théâtre de la Ville Paris & Young Vic. In 2018, 1927 collaborated with The Space to capture Golem on film, which debuted on BBC 4 in November 2018.
