Forced Entertaiment Real Magic Maria Baranova 4387 Copy
Theatre & Dance

Real Magic creates a world of absurd disconnection, struggle and comical repetition. To the sound of looped applause and canned laughter, three performers take part in an impossible illusion – part mind-reading feat, part cabaret act, part nightmare game show – in which they are thrown back again and again to moments of hope and defeat. Caught in a world of second-chances and second-guesses, variations and changes, distortions and transformations, Real Magic takes the audience on a hallucinatory journey, creating a compelling virtuoso performance about big systems, small traps and yearning for change.
