This project was funded by the ReDesigning Theater Seed Grant
VODVIL reinvented the magic show by delving deep into magic’s rich and obscure past, rediscovering forgotten illusions, and presenting them as part of an intimate theatrical experience. This show was created in contrast to magic today, which seems confined to large scale spectacles presented by David Copperfield, or television specials presented by David Blaine. Drawing on the theme of vaudeville, a goal of this show was to present a style of magic that has all but disappeared with time; a wondrous revival. Sections of the show were performed at TEDx Stanford in the Spring of 2013 with potential follow up performances over the summer in Los Angeles.
