Magic and the Muse
Crescent Theatre, Sheepcote Street, Birmingham, U.K.
Friday 28 April 2017 at 8.00pm
An extraordinary night of contemporary music combining live instruments, sampling and soaring vocals with the wonder of the magic lantern. Images created over a century ago still continue to dazzle audiences with their power and vivacity.
Musicians Richard Navarro and Nicholas Thurston combine with performer Miriam Gould and magic lanternists Jeremy Brooker and Mervyn Heard in a unique combination of music, performance and projection.
The show features ‘living pose’ slides previously used by the parents of actor Peter Sellers in the 1930s, along with other stunning images hand painted onto glass, to fill the Crescent Theatre with colour, light and sound.
Tickets for this unforgettable evening are only £16 from the Crescent Theatre Box Office – phone 0121 643 5858 or book online here.
Delegates to the 10th International Magic Lantern Convention don’t need to book, as this event is included in the Convention package.
