A Page of Madness is a balletic musing on our subconscious nightmares, examining dream states in a way that is both beautiful and highly disturbing.

As the writer Vlada Petric states, "The fact remains that historically Kinugasa made the first full feature film whose plot development is radically subverted, whilst its cinematic structure includes virtually every film device known at the time."

This landmark film will be accompanied by a powerful, largely improvised live soundtrack performance by Left Hand Right Hand, asserting itself as music in its own right while remaining respectful of the film’s integrity.

Left Hand Right Hand is a four piece with wide experience in creating music for film and other media, and their radical approach has been praised around the globe.

La Gazzetta Reggio, Italy, place them "at the sharp end of the European avant garde", while Audio Drudge, USA, describe them as "manic drum-driven chamber music".

This performance looks set to become a show that will lodge itself in your memory for quite some time, so don’t be shy about getting a seat early.

This performance is presented in conjunction with Arts Council England.
