OBSCURA

Christian Cagigal

Company website

The beauty of Obscura is that it isn't obscured at all. Other magicians go to lengths to misdirect the audience. Christian Cagigal performs right under the unblinking eye of a video camera -- his wonder-working projected on a giant screen in real time. The heightened level of scrutiny brings an intensity to this hybrid of dark fables and magic. And remember, the Devil’s in the details...literally. Under these conditions where else could he be?

Nominated Best Solo Show - Montreal Fringe Festival 2015

""While his magic dazzles, his storytelling lulls you, transporting you into a world where every stranger might be hiding a devil’s face, a world infinitely more interesting than your own.""

Coming Soon

The clock is ticking: Morning Post editor Walter Burns pulls every trick in the book to stop his ex-wife and star reporter from leaving town forever to marry another man - and save an inmate headed for death row along the way.

This screwball comedy/drama started life as the stage play The Front Page before becoming a popular film starring Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant. Snowglobe Theatre's production is an original stage adaptation of both by director Peter Giser.

Using specific movement and improvisational exercises the body will become the genesis for character and story development. Throughout this workshop the rules of clown emerge giving participants a fundamental understanding of clown, and a deeper awareness of their own performance and creation skills.

Sruti Islam & Jeremie Romain dramatically/comedically read their favorite scenes from theatre & film.
