[EVENT] Launch: ‘Séance: A View Through the Veil’, Ashton Carter Magic and Dr Nik Taylor, in collaboration with David Crowley (Steel Films)

21 September 2021, 6 pm | Launch Event | Short Film | online

Dr Nik Taylor and Ashton Carter will bring their theatrical experience ‘Séance: A View through the Veil’ to film for the first time! Watch as they recreate a selection of spirit contact vignettes where guests would appear to glimpse through the veil and into the world of spirit. Using the techniques and technologies of both the fraudulent medium and the secular magician they reveal the thinking behind some of the most popular methods of the day.

Just what might you encounter in a parlour séance of the Late Victorian Period? How were sitters convinced of spirit contact? Why were people fooled? Join our guides to safely journey to the land of spirit to find out.
