The Projects

“Hard laughs and creative imagery!”

“Brilliant, captivating a very unique performance.”

“Best performance I’ve seen by a ‘new’ company.”

“A lovely, naughty, inventive, Berkoff-flavoured piece!”

Fleeing the shame of his failure at medical school in Moscow, a young man escapes to the cold isolation of the Russian countryside. Here, he happens upon a lonely medical surgery.

A peculiar cohort of nurses and surgeons take him in to be their new head doctor; a position he freely embraces despite his lack of qualifications. How long will he survive in the country before his failure in the city catches up with him?

Inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov, Noctium takes you into a world of gruesome operations and bizarre comedy set deep in the tundra of the Russian countryside.

“Mesmerising”

“Excellent, a magical piece”

“The newspaper was absolutely magical!”

“Inventive, witty, well-observed”

Blinking awake, your eyes take in the enormity of the world around you. To the left there is nothing; to the right there is nothing. But suddenly a flower appears, maybe you won’t be alone?

Through the animation of objects Noctium brings you a tale of lonelines, loss and unwavering hope through the eyes of little things.

Created as part of the (h)experiment season at the Mac Birmingham Noctium has begun work on bringing this piece to a wider audience as it continues to explore the weird and wonderful.

touring 2018/2019

In a small house’s loft, packed in hundreds of cereal boxes, lies the life’s work of the unsung hero of strange sounds and weird wobbulations.

Inspired by the life of Delia Derbyshire, Noctium explores the story of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and of its unaccredited pioneer of electronic sound.

Join Noctium as it forms its newest production inspired by this Coventry-born icon, the champion of modern music and the Doctor Who theme tune. It is sure to be an experience your ears will not believe.
