Friday August 1, 2014: Mike & Claire Manumission’s Phantasmagoria

Mike & Claire Manumission's Phantasmagoria Opening

Mike and Claire Manumission present their newest lovechild, PHANTASMAGORIA… A love affair between dance, music and cinema.

The celebration will culminate every Friday night in August only, when PHANTASMAGORIA will be played out live over 8 hours. Booom will be transformed, with the noirish setting of smoke and low-key lighting into a sleazy futuristic blues club. Cinephile customers will come together to relish in their favorite film director’s work in a totally immersive audio/visual sensory experience.

Beneath chiaroscuro lighting a real life film noir thriller is played out to a sultry soundtrack, interpreted by highly respected DJ’s and Producers including the protagonist Craig Richards in residency with guest stars Derrick Carter, Matthew Herbert, Ivan Smagghe and Skream. With unannounced special guests appearing throughout. Music programming by Derren Smart of London Electronic.

Visual artist ‘Daffy’, Bafta and Emmy award winning Andrew Daffy – known widely for his work on visual effects projects such as Levi’s Odyssey, Bond title sequences, Soulwax’s ‘Machine’ and the Chemical Brother’s ‘Salmon Dance’ – will interpret the subject ‘film’ through beams of light, on screens and installations around the subterranean venue as the celebration culminates every Friday.

Ibiza is the sun kissed Mediterranean island adored by the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Moors, protected by Tanit the Goddess of love and sexuality and guarded by Bes the Egyptian pygmy God of dance after whom the island is named. The island has a rich history of artists and rebels who came here to enjoy the unique sense of freedom including Pablo Picasso, Errol Flynn, Orson Welles, Humphrey Bogart, Truman Capote and Lawrence Olivier. Manumission fell inline with all of Ibiza’s natural ideals and magic, PHANTASMAGORIA takes this as a starting point and extends it far into the future.
