Vincent Gambini: The Chore of Enchantment, Cambridge Junction, Sat 19 Jan

Vincent

In this work-in-progress Gambini exposes the hidden difficulties of being a magician: the arduous job of creating genuine wonder and enchantment, particularly in times of deep political turmoil. What are magicians to do in the face of the growing disillusion that pervades the world today? This is an ambitious performance about artifice and illusion, politics and deception, total wonder and total disenchantment.
