Stan’s Cafe Theatre Company presents The Cardinals in the magnificent St David’s Cathedral

In this thoughtful, funny, and hugely entertaining work, three cardinals perform an elaborate puppet show depicting the most recognisable tales from the Bible. Fans of inventive theatre will love this visual feast by Stan’s Cafe who are known internationally for being artistic trailblazers. The Cardinals considers the various meanings of belief in a wry and insightful theatrical work that gracefully provokes without offending.

Stage meets screen in the terrifying Dementia 13

Live actors, musicians and a sound artist bring cult cinema to life in a fusion of performance and film that will have audiences screaming in fear and shrieking with laughter! Before The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, there was Dementia 13, Francis Ford Coppola’s 1963 gothic horror debut. In this thrilling experience, New Zealand’s Live Live Cinema perform on stage as the film screens above them, with every creeping footstep and murderous axe blow recreated live. This is better than the movies, this is cinema in 4-D!
