LADA is delighted to present this online screening of Lords of Misrule, a new film by Tim Bromage.
The film will be available online from Thursday 26 March, through to late May. On Magic – a live event screening this film and marking the launch of Deception, Performance Magic, Hoaxes, Pranks and Tricks: A Study Room Guide by Tom Cassani, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The event, which also featured magic, films and conversation between Tim, Tom and Augusto Corrieri will be rescheduled.
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.
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.
LADA Screens is a series of free, online screenings of seminal performance documentation, works to camera, short films/video and archival footage. It is part of Live Online, LADA’s dedicated space where you can watch short videos and films drawn from LADA’s Study Room or generated through our programmes and initiatives.
Each screening will be available to view for a limited time only, and will be launched with a live event at our space in Bethnal Green, London.
LADA Screens is curated by the Live Art Development Agency (LADA). LADA is a ‘Centre for Live Art’: a knowledge centre, a production centre for programmes and publications, a research centre setting artists and ideas in motion, and an online centre for digital experimentation, representation and dissemination.
