Tales of Magical Realism: Part 2

A mysterious door presents itself; should you open it? You look through the peephole… Suddenly, you find yourself sitting in an old train carriage, rattling through the night.

Following the sell-out success of Tales of Magical Realism – Part 1 at Cryptic Nights last year, Sven Werner once again invites you to embark on an illusion fuelled journey to darkly poetic places.

Based on his feature film Oculista, in which a lone traveller meets a beautiful, mysterious girl at a train station, this intensely atmospheric installation, allows audiences to truly experience Sven’s steampunk style film ‘from within’. Take a peek into Sven’s miniature, peep-show world with this curiously vaudevillian sonic experience, featuring live music by Graeme Miller.
