Tales of Magical Realism

A mysterious door presents itself; should you open it? 

Based on Werner’s feature film Oculista, in which a lone traveller meets a beautiful mysterious girl at a train station, this intensely atmospheric installation allows audiences to embark on a solo illusion-fuelled journey to darkly poetic places. Take a peek into a miniature steampunk peep-show world with this curiously vaudevillian sonic experience, featuring commissioned music by Graeme Miller. A sell-out success in Glasgow last year at Sonica.
