Vincent Gambini ‘This Is Not a Magic Show’
This is not a magic show is 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.
”This thoughtful, playful and multi-layered piece. will make you question how we watch and what we see”
The Guardian ****
”An alternative low-key magic show…Quiet, deliberate and exceptionally controlled”
