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?

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.""
