The Magician at Brighton Fringe

21 May

As part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, come see The Magician, Rex Ingram’s rarely-seen 1926 silent film so shocking that Aleister Crowley tried to ban it* – a ripping yarn of sorcery and seduction starring the mesmerising Paul Wegener as lecherous occultist Oliver Haddo.

With an introduction by Gary Lachman, and a live soundtrack by the fabulous Ragged Ragtime Band, featuring members of Blondie, Indigo Octagon, Raagnagrok and Time.

* Historical note: OK, this isn’t strictly the case, but it’s sort of true in a round about way…
