OBSCURA

Christian Cagigal

Company website

The beauty of Obscura is that it isn't obscured at all. Other magicians go to lengths to misdirect the audience. Christian Cagigal performs right under the unblinking eye of a video camera -- his wonder-working projected on a giant screen in real time. The heightened level of scrutiny brings an intensity to this hybrid of dark fables and magic. And remember, the Devil’s in the details...literally. Under these conditions where else could he be?

Christian Cagigal - Creator/Performer

Nominated Best Solo Show - Montreal Fringe Festival 2015

""While his magic dazzles, his storytelling lulls you, transporting you into a world where every stranger might be hiding a devil’s face, a world infinitely more interesting than your own.""

Coming Soon

Sarah Millican, one of the biggest stars in UK comedy, returns to Montreal with an hour of new material ahead of her next tour. This is a rare chance to see Sarah’s new work in progress show before she hits the road. She will bring jokes, if you bring laughs. It will be rough and ready and very, very fun.

An impending collision of live video & shifting performance spaces / identity & celebrity / high fashion & low budget -- propelling spectator and performer alike into a hypnotic journey as we explore the connection between [contemporary ""SAD GIRLS"" & classical TRAGIC QUEENS] in an intoxicating performance party.

What you need to know: Jen Kirkman meditates, which makes her better than you. She’s also hilarious, which makes her show Irrational Thoughts: Stories From My Brain a must see.
