Shunt's Warehouse Money Extends Until 26 JunDate: 6 April 2010
Money, the latest production from experimental theatre group Shunt, reopens tonight (6 April 2010) for an extended run until 26 June 2010.
Extending "due to popular demand", the show is staged on a three-storey set in a former tobacco warehouse on Bermondsey Street in London, where it initially ran from 10 September to 23 December 2009, returning for a second run from 5 January to 27 March 2010.
Money is inspired by Émile Zola's novel L'Argent, which was in turn inspired by events surrounding the Union Générale in 19th century France. Dispensing with most of the text, Shunt reshape the work “in their inimitable aesthetic of fractured narrative, electrifying imagery and all-out sensory assault”.
Shunt is a ten-strong collective best known for their large scale productions in alternative venues, with previous shows including Tropicana and Amato Saltone. They also host the regular Shunt Lounge club nights in the vaults below London Bridge station, where they recently extended their residency by a year (See News, 5 Feb 2010).
