Doctor Caligari

Performance Dates

In 1920, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari changed the world of cinema forever, introducing expressionism, unreliable narrators, framing stories, and much more to the new art form.  94 years later, Pointless Theatre is proud to pay tribute to this pioneering work of art with a  new theatrical interpretation of the groundbreaking film.  Using Pointless' signature puppetry to explore the dark corners of an expressionist fever dream, Artistic Directors Matt Reckeweg and Patti Kalil will take audiences on a journey through madness.  Featuring a stunning German Expressionist design as well as a score by local composer Michael Winch, Pointless' adaptation of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari re-imagines one of the cornerstones of world cinema in a way it's never been seen before.
