Sorry this is a bit late; just had a recommendation from Quentin Reynolds…

At the Sheffield University Drama Studio this Wednesday 9 March, Vincent Gambini‘s 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, 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, the show is part performance-lecture, part deconstructed showbiz, and part magic tricks.

There is a talk at 2 pm in the same venue on the same day, and the above event starts at 6 pm. More information and booking details click here
