Spellbound Exhibition - Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

December Dates

Do you believe in magic? Even if you don’t, you probably ‘think magically’ sometimes. We touch wood to stop bad things happening, or take a lucky object to a job interview or exam in an irrational attempt to influence the outcome.

This is the first exhibition to examine how magical thinking has been practised over the centuries. With exquisitely engraved rings to bind a lover, enchanted animal hearts pierced with nails, mummified cats concealed in walls and many other intriguing objects, this exhibition shows that the need to use magic is driven by our strongest emotions: the need to be loved, our fear of evil and the desire to protect our homes. While belief in magic and rituals can be comforting, it has also led to the persecution of women as witches. This exhibition examines both the idea of the witch and the reality of how women were accused of witchcraft.

Even today, our tendency to think magically has not changed as much as we might think. To illuminate the links between past and present, contemporary artists have created new works inspired by the exhibition’s themes. To 6th January 2019. Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont Street, Oxford OX1 2PH (Map). www.ashmolean.org.

Luke Jermay presents An Evening with Max Maven - Manchester

7th January

From the promoters: Orson Welles wrote that Max Maven has "the most original mind in magic". People magazine hailed his "new form of participatory theater". The New York Times stated that his "category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art". Variety praised his "serpent-like humor," and The Stage found him "delightfully droll". If there is such a thing as a "normal" mentalist, clearly Max Maven is not one. And now, Manchester will have the opportunity to find out why. This will be an event in three parts:
1. Max Maven will perform a full-length stage show, and you’ll learn why he’s received such accolades as what’s quoted above, and astonished audiences in over three dozen countries.

2. Luke Jermay will conduct an interview with Max; an opportunity to learn more about the man described by the Chicago Tribune as "wonderfully esoteric". This portion of the evening will also be open to your questions.

3. The night will conclude with a lecture, during which Max will show effects that will fool you first, and delight your audiences later. Practical ideas, offbeat plots, and intriguing methods.
Recently, Derren Brown wrote that Max Maven is a "living legend". Catch Max while the first part is still true. Monday 7th January 2019 at 7pm at Theatre Impossible, 36 Peter Street, Manchester M2 5QR (Map). For more info and to book Click Here.
