6-9pm – screening at 7pm
LCC Studio, Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre
Free and open to all, please book via Eventbrite.
Join us for a celebration and screening of ‘The Three Musketeers’, as remade with help from the local community by artist Billy Sassi.
Using the sets made by participants in the prop making workshop, the short film has been made and shot entirely in the LCC Studio… Look out for cameo appearances from some local faces!
Through a process of repetition, Billy Sassi’s version utilises failure and humour to focus on the constructed nature of identity. Props from the film, made with help from the community, will also be on show.
In addition, a series of London artists’ video and performance that deals with themes of imitation, the remake and authenticity will be screened.
Rosie combines bodies with manufactured objects to investigate issues around desire and power in relation to gender performativity, sexual politics and consumerist identity.

Willey’s pantomime performances explore the vaudeville of contemporary politics.

And, in what ways do we perform our own political position in response? https://www.emilywilley.co.uk
Working largely through performance and video Billy is interested in the imitation of identity. https://www.billysassi.com
