OBSCURA is a teeny-tiny magic show, performed LIVE on a big screen by a renowned Bay Area magician and storyteller! Christian Cagigal - named three times by the SF Bay Guardian as the Best Magician in the Bay - weaves fairy tales, dark fables and strange happenings into an intimate and engaging evening fraught with wonder, mystery and imagination. With OBSCURA, Cagigal returns to his roots as an up-close and personal performer, peppering some of his favorite short stories with witty and eccentric demonstrations of close-up card magic and more. The entire show is performed under the watchful eye of a video camera and projected as large as can be, so the audience can’t miss a thing.
