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

Set in London 1997, four lives intertwine over the course of four and a half years in this densely plotted, stinging look at modern love and betrayal. Winner of the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1999 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Foreign Play.

Confabulation is a unique storytelling event in Montreal, Toronto and Victoria where all the stories told are true. They are honest accounts presented without notes, props, or gimmicks. The show hopes to encourage the practice and art of storytelling in this contemporary world.
