Vault Festival 2016: Melancholy
One inventor playing God, and his biggest invention yet
London's biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. Spiral down the stairs to the world of the inventor. Consumed by loss, he undertakes work on his biggest creation yet, his lost wife...but at what cost? Puppetry, physical theatre and animation combine to tell the story of one man as he treads the fine line between genius and insanity. Show takes place in the Pit space. Running time is approximately 60 minutes. The venue entrance is in a graffiti tunnel under Waterloo and can be a bit tricky to find, so give yourself good time to get there.
"Sweetly inventive and brazenly original."
