“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” at Royal District Theatre
Festival in Media
2017-12-06

Yesterday at the Royal District Theater opened the section "Apollo - Cinema Memory" by a documentary film "Doctor Calligar's Cabinet" accompanied by live music by Jazz Bend "KÜSPERT & KOLLEGEN".


With this film by Robert Wiene an audience saw the expressionist film on the big screen for the first time. Expressionist makeup, sharp-pointed forms and distorted world - this is a visual world of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari".


KÜSPERT & KOLLEGEN is a jazz chamber ensemble, which's been traveling around the world for couple of years already and accompanies the masterpieces of the silent film. Their listener is a contemporary jazz and silent film lover audience. "We always have our finger on the pulse - our music does not sound like a traditional silent film music but contemporary and unpredictable." - says a guitarist and a composer, Werner Küspert.

Werner Küspert worked on the movies and television plays but in 2016, he got back to the stage and nowadays his ensemble KÜSPERT & KOLLEGEN makes the synthesis of jazz and a silent movie on the highest performing level.
