In 1894, while on holiday in Cruden Bay, Bram Stoker Bram Stoker was invited by the 18th Earl of Erroll to visit his humble home. A dark and foreboding sky combined with a sense of awe at the majestic structure before him and curiosity about the nobleman who ordered its construction and walked its candlelit hallways at night, is all reportedly real inspiration for the fantastical fictional Romanian castle in Dracula and its eccentric master. A little miracle of a show, funny, nostalgic, smart, touching, even poetic and magical at times.Building on the success of previous shows, Modo is creating a new show based on the classic novel, Dracula, with a strong emphasis on the inspiration that Bram Stoker found in Slains Castle and the history of the area, during his frequent stays in Cruden Bay. The result is highly physical production that combines circus, clowning and street theatre with infectious, atmospheric music, bringing to life one of the great classics and its debt to Aberdeenshire. Full of extraordinary skill and dexterity, but it is not just a simple juggling exercise, instead becoming a moving and poetic reflectionCome along to be entertained by Dracula and his guests. While creepy, strange and unusual, Doricula is suitable for all ages.One of the best performances Ive ever seen. A touching and marvellous show.
