The Mabuse project was a workshop group that met at Swansea Institute, and which explored themes of German expressionist theatre, the old black-and-white movie Mabuse the Gambler, and, like Vampyra, the meetings of live acting and moving bodies with screens and projections. The workshops were a delicious romp through cabaret scenes, Tante's, pouting lips, movement choirs, gay memoirs and cigarette holders. And, like Mabuse, the project will live again!
