Tales of Magical Realism: Part 2

Sven Werner

Saturday 18 – Monday 20 May
2.00pm – 8.00pm

Take a peek into a miniature steam-punk, peep-show world. Based on Sven Werner’s feature film Oculista, this immersive installation allows audiences to embark on a solo illusion-fuelled journey to darkly poetic places.

The viewer has no choice but to propel the story forward, ensnared as both participant and spectator in a sinister tale seemingly without end.

Tales of Magical Realism comes to the Festival following its sell out success at Sonica 2012.

Performance runs: This piece is a 6 hour interactive installation. Audience journey time is c.50 minutes
