Description

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 conjurer. Combining deadpan reflections with jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, this new show plays expertly with our understandings of deception, artifice and theatrical make-believe. 'Thoughtful, playful and multi-layered... will make you question how we watch and what we see' **** (Guardian). 'Takes apart the clockwork mechanics of wonder in ingenious style' **** (Fest Mag).
