Presented by Tom Cassani
Using the rhetoric of the showman, miracle-monger and sceptic, Cassani will proselytize pedal and preach the importance of remaining wary of those who make extraordinary claims.
Turning water into glass. Turning waiting into accepting is a hard thing to do. Lying is done with words and also silence. None of this is impossible but it’s OK to admit that it is hard. That this is hard. False histories and half-truths, misremembering’s and collective common events, I promise you that tonight.
Supported by Arts Council England, BE Festival and Metal

About the company
Tom Cassani is a Performance Artist and Liar. Tom’s practice of deception has developed and transformed over the past four years, manifesting itself in both text and action-based performance. He is interested in how he can use elements of deception, misdirection and lying in his artistic practice. He has trained in sleight of hand, misdirection and prestidigitation and now uses these skills of deceit as an artistic framework to explore truth, honesty, manipulation and fabrication.
