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 take part in an impossible illusion - part mind-reading feat, part cabaret act, part chaotic game-show. Playing the same scene repeatedly, in a series of variations, 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.
