Phantasmagorical: Victorian Mind-reading and Magic Performance

Phantasmagorical is a supernatural spectacle of stories and magic, swirling with dark whimsy. A show of magic and mind-reading presented by Miss Sylvia Sceptre, at The Old Operating Theatre and Herb Garrett.  The audience is immersed into Sylvia’s world of spirits and macabre obsession with death and asked to question whether she has the gift of second sight or is it the Victorian affliction of hysteria? Is she half-crazed by laudanum or a magician conjuring spirits? Whatever you decide, you will have an intriguing experience to remember. This 60-minute show is engaging, fun and very different to a typical magic show. Storytelling, drama and magic combine to resonate long after the performance is over. Find out more

The Real: Three Propositions at White Cube Bermondsey

‘The Real: Three Propositions’ presents paintings and drawings by Peter Dreher, Konrad Klapheck and Des Lawrence, all of whom use precise, figurative styles to depict people, places and things. These artists merge realms of appearance and consciousness to varying degrees in their work, intermixing objectivity and subjectivity as they conjure things and their meanings in two dimensions. At a time when images and information, factual and fictional, circulate instantaneously, they ask the viewer to slow down and to consider how matter and mind intertwine when the world is re-envisioned.
