Vincent Gambini presents

The Chore of Enchantment

The world is in turmoil, the news cycle is spinning out of control. 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 performs astonishing feats of sleight-of-hand, whilst simultaneously laying bare the hidden difficulties of being a conjuror in the 21st century. Is magic mere escapism, a childish distraction from urgent world problems?

And as the show progresses, a strange mystery gradually unfolds: has Gambini in fact long retired from show business, and is this very show nothing but a dream-memory of his final performance?

Combining deadpan comedy with jaw-dropping sleight-of-hand magic, The Chore of Enchantment plays cleverly with deception, artifice and theatrical make-believe.
