Vincent Gambini

The Chore of Enchantment

This is a past event which has now ended.

The world is in turmoil. Can magic provide the much-needed solace for these difficult times? Vincent Gambini is not so sure. Struggling with “magician’s block”, Gambini unveils the arduous job of a conjurer, tasked with creating a sense of wonder in a world disillusioned by global events. Combining deadpan reflections with jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, this new show plays expertly with our understandings of deception, artifice and theatrical make-believe.

‘Takes apart the clockwork mechanics of wonder in ingenious style’ **** Fest Mag

‘Thoughtful, playful and multi-layered… will make you question how we watch and what we see’ **** The Guardian

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
