An amazing line-up of music and cinema for your listening and viewing pleasure Kieron Maguire & The Suitcase Cinema present "The Search for Ulysses" (16mm film and Homeric guitar). Suitcase Cinema are a mobile cinema who thread old 16mm reels on a borrowed projector to bring to digital audiences the breath-held-in wonder of the dusty,noisy flicker of physical film. Teaming up with Cabinet of Living Cinema founder, Kieron Maguire, they present a reel of The Search for Ulysses, a beautiful 1960s documentary following the footsteps of Homer's hero around the islands of the Med. Instead of the documentary narration, Kieron Maguire provides a live score inspired by Ulysses' epic encounters and reads from the poem. Influenced by English folk and traditional music, Tim Jones plays a set of songs journeying from the depths of Hades to the mining valleys of South Wales, taking in ghoulish apparitions, anthropomorphic cats and Queen Elizabeth’s dastardly plans for the British Isles. Vronsky are South London’s finest purveyors of lyrical folky earworms, and are paying a rare visit to the wilds of Stoke Newington to play an intimate set.
