Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: Tales of the Trickster

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 04 May 2012 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Tales of the Trickster is a new project launched on April Fools Day by Bambo Soyinka, an award winning writer, director and curator with over a decade???s experience of multi-platform storytelling and production. She is now seeking out fellow tricksters to join her in a network of magic, trickery and transformation with a series of creative conversations and wiley events in Bristol and Cardiff between May and July this year. Bambo has initiated and directed multiplatform projects across the UK and internationally. She recently received a development grant through Wales Lab, to develop Dial 419 for Love, a multiplatform drama inviting participants to explore the worlds of romance scammers and their love victims. This dark romantic thriller blurs the lines between fiction and reality: Who are the performers, who are the players, where does the deception begin and end? Bambo will talk about romance scammers, Dial 419 for Love and how the Tales of the Tricksters network will encourage active trickery both online and at workshops coming very soon.
