Now and at the Hour by Christian Cagigal
What does a boy do when he grows up with a father afflicted with mental illness after Vietnam? He retreats into a world of magic. Not a mere series of tricks, Now and at the Hour brings you into a subtle realm of darkness and imagination as Cagigal weaves storytelling and illusion into an intimate, interactive and altogether unnerving magical experience."
Cagigal takes you on a journey through Time and Reflection. No flash, no frills, Now and at the Hour is an intimate and deeply personal story about growing up and becoming a "grown-up".
Christian Cagigal is among a new crop of illusionists and theatre artists that dares to go beyond the usual bag of tricks and bring you into a world of darkness, mystery and imagination. His work doesn't attempt to "Blow your brain" or "Freak your mind", but slowly seep into your subconscious until you have to ask the question, "This isn't real is it?"
"'Now and at the Hour' is a unique and genuine theatrical experience that should not be missed" -- nytheatre.com March 2009

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."
