Gathering the Magic
GATHERING THE MAGIC is a solo performance event in which master magician Nelson Lugo combines slice-of-life storytelling with sophisticated stage magic to produce an extraordinary theatrical experience. In the style of NPR's The Moth combined with classic turn-of-the-century magic, Nelson Lugo lures his audience into an intricate web of pop cultural influences and life lessons as he presents magic in a whole new way.
Created and Performed by Nelson Lugo
GATHERING THE MAGIC is a 90 minute exploration of one magician's journey: A timeless tale of "boy meets magic kit/boy becomes magician," packed with pitfalls, triumph and adventure.
Descended from a genuine Santeria, Nelson Lugo has evolved his singular magical style for more than 15 years, showcasing classic prestidigitation with a wink and a nod to the nerd culture that has shaped him. GATHERING THE MAGIC is in its essence a love story which asks if there can be truth in deception, for it's not always so important HOW a trick is done, but WHY.
