Tom Cassani

Someone Loves You Drive With Care

Tue 16 – Wed 17 August, 8pm
Reserve seats

The structure of a trick is imbalanced. Watch everyday actions turn into the impossible. I place myself in vulnerable situations so we can examine the extremities of collectively constructed truths and lies. We will explore moments in time that have never happened and will never happen again. Being born at the same time as a tree, holding a stranger’s hand, crying. I will expose deceptive techniques, teach how to spot a deception, empty my pockets and disarm myself of any hidden magnets, threads and pulleys. Stripping back any physical means of trickery we will explore and expose deception.’

Tom is a performance artist and liar. Trained in sleight of hand and prestidigitation, he uses deceit as an artistic platform, exploring subjects of truth, honesty and manipulation. Tom invites you to investigate his relationship with a practice founded on bending the truth and being honest about doing just that.
