Creature + Short film (12A)

Creature + Short film

Both showings of Creature will open with a short film by regional choreographer and dance artist, Beth Veitch.

Beth will join us on March 28th to introduce her film Waiting for a Hug. Tickets to this show are FREE TO ALL FRIENDS OF THE FORUM.

Based on the acclaimed English National Ballet production, choreographed by Akram Khan and directed by Academy Award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy), Creature is a genre-busting collaboration that fuses film and contemporary dance.

In a dilapidated former Arctic research station, Creature is unknowingly enlisted by a military brigade into an experimental programme. Creature meets and falls in love with Marie, a cleaner who shows him kindness and compassion; together they dream of escape.

This vivid cinematic experience is a beautiful, tragic tale of an outsider’s search for belonging, the insatiable desires of the powerful, and the enduring hope found in human connection and compassion.

Haunted by grief, and with his world spinning violently out of control, Hamlet has to make some decisions: forget or remember; live or die.

Chapman plays Brian Cohen, a Jewish contemporary of Jesus mistaken for the Messiah…. He’s just a very naughty boy.

Rife with the groups signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian’s life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.
