The world is in turmoil. Can magic provide the much-needed solace and
enchantment for these difficult times? Magician Vincent Gambini is not
so sure. Disillusioned with illusions, struggling with “magician’s
block”, Gambini presents a theatre show about the hidden difficulties of
being a magician: the arduous job of manufacturing amazement, especially
when the world edges towards collapse.
Combining jaw-dropping magic with Gambini’s trademark ironic detachment
and a flair for the unspectacular, The Chore of Enchantment plays
expertly with our understandings of illusion and theatre.
