Critically acclaimed magician and theatre artist Vincent Gambini presents brand new sleight-of-hand.
The world is in turmoil. Can magic provide the much-needed solace for these difficult times? Vincent Gambini is not so sure.
Disillusioned by global news events, struggling with “magician’s block”, Gambini unveils the hidden difficulties of being a conjuror.
Combining deadpan reflections with jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, this new performance desconstructs our understandings of deception, artifice and theatrical make-believe.
Critically acclaimed magician and theatre artist Vincent Gambini returns to play expertly with our understandings of magic and theatre. 'Thoughtful, playful and multi-layered... will make you question how we watch and what we see.’ The Guardian (on Gambini’s This Is Not A Magic Show)
