Drawing on the ancient Jewish folklore of Golem – the story of a man who fashions a creature out of clay to work for him – this production is not a re-telling or adaptation of the myth, but rather an original story, exploring man and his machines. Located in a futuristic and yet throwback, familiar world, where technology and the market economy have evolved to transcend the boundaries of human control, Golem has become a must-have, indispensable ingredient for a better life. Its very existence, however threatens the prospect of those who created it.
» A cracked, exaggerated, funhouse mirror reflection of our world that you could stare into for days.
Time Out, Andrzej Lukowski
» Groundbreaking with strokes of genius (…) A witty collision of antiquated aesthetics, wide ranging cultural influences and modern day sensibilities.
The Daily Telegraph, Dominic Cavendish
