This is a clip from a movie about dada that I digitised from videotape. I no longer have the details of the original so please post them here if you have them. P.S. in response to queries about the video. Since first posting the video I spent a considerable amount of time researching dada for a novel and am convinced that the video is of a reconstruction, albeit an excellent one, as always suspected. Ball's 'Flight out of time' makes no mention of any filming. The press release which accompanied the opening of the nightclub reads: Cabaret Voltaire.

A creative re-enactment of Brief Encounter, forming part of the Mash Improv night on November 21 2017. The theme of the night was Encounter. Improv Nights are monthly experimental art cabarets held at Mash Guru in Macclesfield, and curated by Sabine Kussmaul and Mark Sheeky. Performances range from improvised music jams to performance poetry, projected video, drama, live drawing, audience participation or any other form of performance art. Here Deborah Edgeley and Mark Sheeky improvise the closing café scene from David Lean's Brief Encounter, with grey make-up to simulate the black and white film. This was an unscripted and largely improvised experiment. Filming by Linda Towell on hand held phone. Music by Rachmaninoff performed by Skidmore College Orchestra via Musopen.
This is an excerpt from my documentary-in-progress on the dada movement, titled, "Random Acts of Beauty: The Story of Dada." The assassination of Austria's Archduke Francis Ferdinand in 1914, plunges Europe into war. The United States and Switzerland remained neutral, but because of it's proximity, Switzerland became the destination of choice for those wishing to escape the conflict. In early 1916, just a few weeks before the battle of Verdun, the Cabaret Voltaire opens, just a block and a half away from where V.I. Lenin is spending his exile. It is founded by Hugo Ball and Emmy Hennings; entertainers who attract a small cadre of like-minded exiles. They embark on a campaign of ever more outrageous acts, which gain traction amongst the public. Soon, they chose a name for themselves, ...
