Christian Cagigal's Obscura - a magic show
Join magician Christian Cagigal as he weaves magic, fairy tales and dark fables into an intimate and engaging evening fraught with wonder, mystery and imagination. Cagigal has been regaling diverse audiences with his unique hybrid of theatre and "slightly creepy" magic at the EXIT Theatre, where he is currently an Artist in Residence. He has been hailed as one of San Francisco's most original independent performers, producing "intimate spectacle" that has charmed and bewildered audiences since 2006.
Cagigal's shows include "The 13 Steps," "The Pandora Experiment" (a resident favorite that played to full houses in 2007 and 2008), and his most recent critically acclaimed performance, "Now and at the Hour." With his new magic show, "Obscura," Cagigal returns to his roots as an up-close and personal magician and entertainer, peppering some of his favorite short stories with witty, eccentric demonstrations. "Obscura" is the live component of Cagigal's new Web series of the same name, directed and co-produced by local independent filmmaker H.P. Mendoza ("Colma The Musical," "Fruitfly").

Asked who the show is geared for, Cagigal replies, "It's for believers, skeptics, those who hate magic shows, and those who hate theatre. There is nothing inappropriate for children at all but this will not be a 'kids'' magic show."
