A nine-piece live orchestra performs a score for improvising musicians by New Brunswick composer Andrew Miller alongside the screening of the classic 1920 silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari .

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a German horror film, directed by Robert Wiene and written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. Considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, it tells the story of an insane hypnotist (Werner Krauss) who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit murders. The film features a dark and twisted visual style, with sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles, and shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets.
