Obscura

Start Date: Sat 13 Jun, 2015
End Date: Sat 20 Jun, 2015

Artistic Events

Join Magician Christian Cagigal as he weaves fairy tales, dark fables and strange happenings into an intimate and engaging evening fraught with wonder, mystery and imagination.

The beauty of Obscura is that it isn't obscured at all. Whereas other magicians go to elaborate lengths to misdirect the audience's attention, illusionist Christian Cagigal performs right under the unblinking eye of a video camera -- his wonder-working projected on a giant screen above him in real time. The heightened level of scrutiny brings a special intensity to this hybrid of dark fables and astonishing magic. Cagigal's ingenious and extremely polished show has amazed critics in Chicago ("He's the Pied Piper and we're the mice ... "), New Orleans ("He had us in the palm of his hand ... "), San Francisco ("Undeniably irresistible ... ") and many more cities. Be there as it hits Montreal and remember: The Devil is in the details ... under these conditions, where else could he be?
