Nosferatu is based on one of the most evocative texts in popular culture, Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  Seducing the audience into a dream-like state, director Grzegorz Jarzyna uses the vampiric myth to explore what lies between an idea and the reality, and between light and shade.

This is TR Warszawa's third visit to the Barbican, having last performed here in 2010 with Grzegorz Jarzyna’s T.E.O.R.E.M.A.T  and his critically acclaimed production of Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis.

'TR Warszawa have gone from being a fringe Polish company to a force in international drama.' The Guardian

A creepingly erotic, visually ravishing piece.' Time Out

110 mins / no interval

Age guidance 16+

This production contains nudity, smoke effects, strobe lighting and scenes that some may find disturbing.

In Polish with English surtitles
