This is not a magic show


At Pulse Festival 2016, Vincent Gambini brought This Is Not A Magic Show to the New Wolsey Theatre.

A performance of and about sleight-of-hand magic: its invisible mechanics, its clichés, and what it tells us about live theatre and make-believe. In a conversational yet crafted approach, Vincent Gambini presents astonishing close-up magic that invites us to question how enchantment and wonder are produced within a theatrical situation.

Possibly the first of its kind, Vincent Gambini’s This Is Not A Magic Show is part performance-lecture, part deconstructed showbiz, and part magic tricks that leave you, like, omg.
