As chilling as it is fascinating, Tom Scutt’s production of Berberian Sound Studio is an effective slow-burner that captures the audience’s attention as much as their imagination.
Actor Hemi Yeroham spoke to Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon about starring in Iris Theatre’s puppet-filled premiere of Arabian Nights at Hoxton Hall, which finishes its acclaimed season this weekend.
It is in the telling of the tales, though, that Arabian Nights really comes alive. Iris Theatre uses a spectacular array of puppets, from a towering, glowing-eyed King Shahryar to birds, ships and sea monsters.
Arabian Nights is highly recommended for an evening of high-quality escapism and entertainment, presented by a talented and incredibly hard-working cast – with a little help from some seriously cool puppets.
This was the first time I have visited Hoxton Hall, one of the last remaining music halls in London, and it seemed a very fitting venue for this economic production of Arabian Nights.
