1927's critically acclaimed Golem is to return for a tour of the UK, Europe and Asia.

The production, a mix of live performance, music, film and animation, is about a normal man whose life is changed when he buys a creature to help with his daily affairs.

Written and directed by Suzanne Andrade, Golem is loosely based on Gustav Meyrink's dark thriller Der Golem and challenges and satirises a world increasingly obsessed with technology.

After its world premiere at the Salzburg Festival in 2014, it ran for two months at the Young Vic before transferring to the West End. It has since toured the world and won a Critics' Circle Award for design in 2015.
