A cult, camp classic gets not just recorded, but re-dialogued live, with just four performers. That is the concept of Live Live Cinema, which returns to the Barbican this June to have a crack at Little Shop of Horrors.
The Barbican brings Live Live Cinema back to London following their 2013 performances of Carnival of Souls and Dementia 13. The New Zealand based group will once again combine a cult cinematic gem with a new live score, live cast and live foley artists. Audrey - the talking man-eating plant in Little Shop of Horrors, Roger Corman’s original 1960 classic - is brought back to life to taunt hapless florist Seymore in this hilarious fast-paced 4D cinema event. Film footage is accompanied by just four performers working at break-neck speed, leaping from instrument to sound effect whilst they voice every character and add some asides of their own. Leon Radojkovic’s new score references the eerie minimalism of 1960s horror soundtracks, combining elements of modern rock and pop, building atmosphere and drawing the audience into Audrey and Seymore’s warped world.
