Christian Cagigal on putting the bite back in magic

Feb 4, 2016

Magician and actor Christian Cagigal combines his acting chops and sleight of hand to create unforgettable onstage illusions. His critically-acclaimed solo shows use storytelling and audience participation  to create intimate and disarming experiences. Cagigal talked with KALW’s Jen Chien about combining theater with sleight of hand. 

CAGIGAL: I want you to confront what you think is real, and what you think is not. 

Cagigal also performed a trick live in studio. Check it out in the video below.

You can catch Cagigal’s solo show “Obscura” tomorrow night at the Victoria Theatre in San Francisco, or as part of the Fog City Magic Fest February 10-13 at EXIT Theatre in San Francisco.
