About This Event
A one-man adaptation of Gustav Meyrink’s legendary 1915 novel, the dream like world of The Golem is conjured by a single actor and amplified with live music by cyberpunk-electronica artist Jupiter Rex.
The Golem follows the story of Athanasius Pernath, a jeweler in Prague’s Jewish ghetto in the late 19th century who is afflicted with a curious amnesia. When a strange man enters Pernath’s life with a mysterious book, the jeweler begins his descent into a labyrinth of murder, madness, and plots of revenge and unrequited love that eventually bring him face to face with his own dark past and mortality.
