The Vanishing Man (Walthamstow)

From 31st May 2017
HighTide Festival Walthamstow 2017
“Cheeky and unexpectedly moving” a “confounding cracker of a show”
The Guardian

“I’ve been able to work out, deconstruct and rebuild every trick I’ve ever seen. Except this one.”

This is the story of a magic trick: the greatest one ever performed.

Hugo Cedar created the perfect trick and then disappeared forever, but his story lives on…

Directors and performers Simon Evans (two-time recipient of the Close Up Magician of the Year award and director of Arturo Ui at the Donmar Warehouse with Lenny Henry, Bug at Found 111 with James Norton, and The Dazzle at Found 111 with Andrew Scott) and David Aula (director The Cement Garden, Personal Enemy and MEAT), team up to create a time-hopping, misdirection-abusing, mind-bending examination of what really happens when a man, in full sight of his audience, simply ceases to be.
