The world is in turmoil. Can magic provide the much-needed solace for these difficult times? Vincent Gambini is not so sure.

Disillusioned by global news events, struggling with “magician’s block”, Gambini unveils the hidden difficulties of being a conjuror.
Combining deadpan reflections with jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, this new performance desconstructs our understandings of deception, artifice and theatrical make-believe.

Critically acclaimed magician and theatre artist Vincent Gambini returns to play expertly with our understandings of magic and theatre, in this brand new preview performance.

'Thoughtful, playful and multi-layered… will make you question how we watch and what we see.’
**** G...uardian (on Gambini’s This Is Not A Magic Show)
