Description

This year, our fall entry for the Riversdale Silent Classics Series will take us all the way back to 1920 with a screening of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, starring the incredible John Barrymore -- and bringing the film to life with a BRAND NEW ORIGINAL FILM SCORE will be Saskatoon's own incomparable performance artists, The New Jacobin Club!



The Film:

Based on the Robert Louis Stevenson story: Doctor Henry Jekyll's enthusiasm for science and his selfless acts of service have made him a much-admired man. But as he visits Sir George Carew one evening, his host criticizes him for his reluctance to experience the more sensual side of life. Sir George goads Jekyll into visiting a music hall, where he watches the alluring dancer Gina. Jekyll becomes fascinated with the two contrasting sides of human nature, and he becomes obsessed with the idea of separating them. After extensive work in his laboratory, he devises a formula that does indeed allow him to alternate between two completely different personalities, his own and that of a brutish, lascivious person whom he names Hyde. It is not long before the personality of Hyde begins to dominate Jekyll's affairs.


The Music:

Outcasts among wise men and fools alike, the New Jacobin Club is a fiendish group of musicians, poets, painters and performance artists who have been entertaining and provoking since the mid 1990’s. Combining elements of seedy bohemian stage theatrics with bombastic and darkly psychedelic anthems has given the long lived ensemble a shocking and original edge that has attracted as much heated controversy as it has fiercely loyal fans.

The core of the group is led by founding father and roaring frontman Xerxes Praetorius Horde (“The Horde” to his allies) and accompanied by Poison Candi (theremin, percussion, vocals), The Luminous (electric cello), The Ruin (bass) and The Rat King (drums) and Mistress Nagini (synth & backing vocals).
