Nosferatu is based on one of the most evocative texts in popular culture, Bram Stokerís 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 Jarzynaís T.E.O.R.E.M.A.T and his critically acclaimed production of Sarah Kaneís 4:48 Psychosis.
'TR Warszawa have gone from being a fringe Polish company to a force in international drama.' The Guardian
