Abstract

Fake Magic, by Vincent Gambini (aka Augusto Corrieri) was an evening of theatrical conjuring.

Featuring special guest performances by Tim Bromage and Tom Cassani

It took place on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June, 7.30pm @ The Rose Hill, Brighton.

‘One thing they don’t tell you at magic school is just how hard, how excruciatingly hard, it actually is to be a magician. It’s not just the endless children’s birthday parties, or the soul-crushing corporate gigs. It’s the fact that when you step on stage, everyone in the theatre knows that what you’re doing isn’t real, it’s a trick, everything you do is fake. You’re a fake, you’re a phoney. You’re not a real magician… That’s what people think… and they’re right.’

With support from the University of Sussex, the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, and Shoreditch Town Hall
