To mark the 90th anniversary of Dreyer's VAMPYR, a black and white silent film that paved the way for the horror genre, Brixton Chamber Orchestra's 15-piece orchestra will provide a live soundtrack of original composition and improvisation for a one of a kind performance.
A traveller obsessed with the supernatural arrives at a countryside inn – and finds the family that lives there pulling him into a mystery that crosses between the realms of the living and the dead. One of cinema’s great nightmares, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s Vampyr lingers 90 years on through a combination of chilling imagery, ominous sound and stunning filmmaking technique.
Hot off the heels of performances at Glastonbury Festival, Lambeth Country Show and their much lauded Summer Estates Tour of Lambeth housing estates, Brixton Chamber Orchestra bring their creative uniqueness to the Ritzy Cinema for a special Halloween experience. Brixton Chamber Orchestra is a registered charity and a versatile group of instrumentalists which provides thrilling live orchestral experiences for wide-ranging audiences in Brixton and beyond. BCO champions orchestral music, presenting it to new audiences in unexpected venues, revelling in innovative collaborations with all sorts of artists and genres - Grime to Gospel, Disco to Drum and Bass, Classical to Jazz, and everything in between. BCO are Brixton's own orchestra - a product of local talent and the unique blend of creative energy and cultural diversity which characterises the area.
