Theatre Lab’s spellbinding production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome, comes to London’s historic Hoxton Hall later this month.
This acclaimed visual spectacle, which evokes the soul of its flamboyant writer, Oscar Wilde, will play the recently beautifully restored Hoxton Hall from January 31.
This is the company’s fifth production of Salome. It premiered as a site-specific performance in December 2012 at the Old Cholmeley Boys’ Club, a decadent underground Victorian building in London.
Since then it has toured to Cabaret Voltaire, Athens in 2013, Festival D’Avignon in July 2014 and Thessaloniki in October 2014.
The show has been praised for its eccentric and decadent portrayal of what was, at one time, a forbidden play. It revels in its characters’ complexities and contradictions, the complicity of desire and pleasure, and darker emotions, and the tragic consequences of excess.
Director Anastasia Revi sets Salome in the 1930s where King Herod is celebrating his birthday in style with a sumptuous banquet.
CAST: Denise Moreno, Konstantinos Kavakiotis, Helen Bang, Matthew Wade, Tobias Deacon, Benoit Gouttenoire, Annabelle Brown.
Salome runs at Hoxton Hall, East London, from January 31 – February 11.
