Inspired by 19th century stage magic, Mirror Mirror uses our three trusty lanterns and both Victorian and contemporary slides (and a chance to make and project your own). We can offer a show and tell, a set performance or create a new work to suit your needs.

We have previously created work for TATE, the Wallace Collection, Hoxton Hall, Museum of Childhood, IKON Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Borderlines and Green Man Festivals and Camp Bestival.

Mirror Mirror’s Director Claire Cooke has wide experience of devising and delivering arts education activities: family drop-in sessions, formal (KS1-KS4) and informal groups, young people, community and elders projects across a range of arts and heritage sectors. She has worked in public engagement for contemporary art (SPACE, VITRINE), film distribution (BFI) and heritage (Pitzhanger Manor, St John at Hackney).

Other lanternists performing in U.K.


The Magic Lantern Society does not guarantee that any performance you arrange will match your requirements and recommends that you agree your needs in detail with any potential lanternist. Any resulting contract or arrangement to provide a show will be between the organiser and the lanternist only and will not involve the Magic Lantern Society in any way.
