The Chore of Enchantment
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
