Event description
A magical double bill – a screening of Tim Bromage’s new film The Lord of Misrule and the launch of Tom Cassani’s LADA Study Room Guide.

About this Event

Please join us for a magical double bill – 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.

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.

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.

Deception, Performance Magic, Hoaxes, Pranks and Tricks draws together resources that inform the sometimes disparate and eclectic field of deception and performance. Tom Cassani collated these resources in response to his research and reflections on the themes of Deception, Performance Magic, Hoaxes, Pranks and Tricks. The Guide also contains an accompanying essay which aims to expand the discourse around deception and magic in performance with reference to a curated selection of significant works and artists presenting work that explores these themes.

LADA Screens platforms moving image work by artists who make live work. This includes short films/videos, short documentaries, works to camera, performance documentation and archival footage. Each screening is launched with a live event at our space in Bethnal Green, London and is then available to view on our online channel for a month and. Online art magazine, thisistomorrow also features the work on their website for the duration of the screening.

Please note: This event is free and capacity is not limited but reservation and early arrival are encouraged to ensure a seat.

"I take my responsibility to turn up when I’ve booked a free place maybe even more seriously than when I’ve paid for a ticket. Because with free tickets someone else is paying for that ticket, right? Maybe it’s the organisers, maybe it's the artist, maybe it’s a funding body, but I know that if I’m not paying then someone else is paying for me. So I want to be mindful of that gift, and make sure that it will really be passed on if I decide not to go.” - Kate Stonestreet 2018
