Please join us for a screening of Tim Bromage’s new film The Lord of Misrule and the launch of Tom Cassani’s LADA Study Room Guide Deception, Performance Magic, Hoaxes, Pranks and Tricks.

About

Tim and Tom will be joined by Augusto Corrieri who will show two short DIY films Eight hidden movements and Coin roll tutorial.

All three of them will also perform some magic and have a conversation about magic, deception and performance art.

LADA Screens: The Lord of Misrule

The Lord of Misrule is new collaborative film by Tim Bromage, filmed by Roger Graham  and performed by Quentin Reynolds.  “I have long been interested in what happens when you perform the same material over and over again. How it gets into the body and carves a familiar groove. This film is both a celebration and document of this process, as we see Punch man Quentin Reynolds present a show that he has performed thousands of times. “

Following this live launch, the film will be available to view online as April and May’s LADA Screens.

Tim Bromage

Tim Bromage is an artist, performer, and writer based in Wales. His work is informed by a variety of sources including folklore, the uncanny, and stage magic. As a recipient of a Creative Wales Award he recently undertook a radical body of research into the role of the raconteur as a trickster figure and oral historian. He is an associate artist at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.

Tom Cassani

Tom Cassani is a Performance Artist and Liar. He is interested in how he can use elements of deception, misdirection and lying in his artistic practice. He has trained in sleight of hand, misdirection and stage magic and now uses these skills to explore truth, honesty and the importance of remaining wary of those who make extraordinary claims.Tom also works as a consultant magician and dramaturg of deception and maker of impossibilities.

Augusto Corrieri

Augusto Corrieri is an artist and writer based in Brighton and London. His works for theatres and galleries have been commissioned by European art centres, including Madrid’s Casa Encendida, Vienna’s Tanzquartier, London’s Camden Arts Centre, and Brighton’s Nightingale Theatre. With a playful rigour, the performances deconstruct the apparatus of theatre, inviting spectators to reflect on questions of spectacle and ecology in the 21st century. His book, In Place of a Show: what happens inside theatres when nothing is happening (2016) is published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama. It is available for order here. In parallel to his performance and writing practice, Augusto presents a magic show under the pseudyonym Vincent Gambini.
