A true tale of conspiracy, cover-ups and close-up magic.
What arcane secrets did Sidney Lebowitz, USAF senior airman from Brooklyn New York, keep hidden even from his wife?
Was he a con man, a card sharp
or was there a deeper mystery?
I did the one-handed shuffle he’d shown me which I’d spent a year practicing.
“In a poker game that’ll get you killed” he snarled. “You’re giving away the secret!”
I just did card tricks but uncle Sidney, US airman, was a hustler. “Magic isn’t about showing off. It’s about the effect you create. Bending the laws of the universe. You don’t want them to think you have skills!”
Award nominated Performance Artist Anton Binder returns to the Brighton Fringe with his latest devised piece, a mix of drama and close-up illusion. ‘Like Derren Brown directed by David Lynch’
Anton Binder's solo show 'I Married an Alien Card-Sharp' combines anecdotal drama and close-up illusion in a unique take on magic, mind games and false memory.
An extraordinary performance
that will leave you stunned.
