Forget everything you know about magic and magicians.
Now remember it all again.
Vincent Gambini's 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 wonder is produced in a theatrical situation. Possibly the first of its kind, This is not a magic show is part performance-lecture, part deconstructed showbiz, and part magic tricks that leave you, like, omg.
