Realityfilm and Tate Modern present a twenty-first century psychoanalytical, cinematic cabaret with live music by The Real Tuesday Weld and narration by English alchemist David Piper and Brazilian chanteuse Cibelle. The event is produced by Marek Pytel.
Dada artist, filmmaker and writer Hans Richter created the extraordinary colour sound film Dreams That Money Can Buy (1946), which features a penniless protagonist who has the ability to create dreams and devises a business selling them to others. Among his customers are some of the greatest names in the Dadaist/Surrealist movements, including Man Ray, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp and Fernand Leger, all of whom make a contribution to the film and whose works are on show in Tate's new Poetry and Dream wing.
The Real Tuesday Weld, have composed a score in response to the film which is performed live with David Piper and Cibelle. This was last performed at the bfi National Film Theatre in April 2005. Stephen Coates became (The Real) Tuesday Weld in 1997, inspired by Al Bowlly and the American actress Tuesday Weld, and influenced by 1930s jazz, Gainsbourg and Morricone. The band, having grown from one to three to six in just under two years, now includes Jacques Van Rhijn (a descendant of Rembrandt) on clarinet, Clive Painter on guitar, Jed Woodhouse on percussion, Don Brosnan on bass and Gary Bridgewood on violin.
