Vincent Gambini: This is not a magic show

About Vincent Gambini: This is not a magic show

WHAT MAKES MAGIC MAGIC?

And is there really a Magic Circle Emergency Hotline for magicians to call in distress?

‘This is not a magic show’ is a critically acclaimed 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 made 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.
