The 1923 silent film Salome, a rarely seen artwork of film history adapted from the controversial Oscar Wilde play, will be screened in the Watergate Theatre on March 5 at 8pm.

Made in 1923, Salome loosely follows the biblical story of King Herod and his desire for his young step-daughter. This production brings together a screening of the 1923 silent film with a live performance of the new score specially written for the film by Charlie Barber.

Sound Affairs is a chance to enter the world of contemporary music and cross art forms. The music is performed by four percussionists, playing from two giant alloy towers places on either side of the screen.

Tickets cost €15/€12 and are available from 056 7761674 and www.watergatetheatre.com.
