This is not a magic show show

This is not a magic show

Vincent Gambini

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, Vincent 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, Vincent Gambini’s This is not a magic show is part performance-lecture, part deconstructed showbiz, and part magic tricks that leave you, like, omg.

Please note that this performance takes place 18 & 20-22 May, across multiple venues.

Matilda Ferry (Wed 18 May), The Wardrobe Theatre (Fri 20 May), Bristol Green Studio (Sat 21 May), S.P.A.C.E. (Sun 22 May)

This thoughtful, playful and multi-layered piece will make you question how we watch and what we see.

✭✭✭✭ The Guardian

An alternative low-key magic show… Quiet, deliberate and exceptionally controlled.

✭✭✭✭ Time Out

Takes apart the clockwork mechanics of wonder in ingenious style

✭✭✭✭ Fest Mag

A gentle, cerebral show in which Gambini unpicks both his tricks and the expectations of his audience… A tightly constructed piece of performance.
