Magic & Surrealism Workshop: In David's mind, Magic and Magic Tricks, are two very different things. This workshop will explore both. Through a crash course in illusion, we will examine how we interact with reality. We will also discuss the intersection of magic and surrealism as well as play several surrealist games. You will go home with many more questions than you came in with, as well as several tricks and surrealist games to amuse, amaze and engage your friends and family. Recommended for ages 13+. Tickets for the workshop are $25.
