This Is Not A Magic Show
Forget everything you know about magic and magicians. Now remember it all again.
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.
Vincent Gambini is an award winning sleight-of-hand magician based in London. He gained entry to the Magic Circle by writing a thesis called 'Deconstucting Magic' which, as a title, perfectly describes what he does. In his spare time he writes and makes performances under the pseudonym Augusto Corrieri.
