Synopsis


Forced Entertainment's new performance Real Magic creates a world of absurd disconnection, struggle and comical repetition.


To the sound of looped applause and canned laughter, a group of performers attempt an impossible illusion - part mind-reading feat, part cabaret act, part chaotic game show - in which they endlessly revisit moments of defeat, hope and anticipation.


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 performance about optimism, individual agency and the desire for change.
