Iterations by Tom Cassani

Iterations centres on Cassani’s fifteen-year obsession with the skill and precision of sleight of hand. It invites us to think about how we think about the performance of skill, magic and the seemingly impossible…

Through deconstructed sleight of hand and revealing text, Cassani offers us time to reflect and re-interpret. This contemporary exposé of the magician practising explores how impossibilities can emerge through repetition, actions, gestures and self-reflection. You will learn everything it takes, and how hard it really is, to do something impossible so effortlessly.

What we love about Iterations

A clever, interactive show, with hands-on experience of the choreography behind illusions. You’ll see the inside of tricks and enjoy being fooled by them nonetheless.
