Experience a unique form of conjuring combining sleight-of-hand with British Sign Language performed by Goldie Puricelli. ‘Signed Magic’ is a fully accessible close-up magic performance that is signed in BSL and spoken simultaneously to allow the deaf community and non-deaf community to share the same experience. You can then hear Goldie explain some of the challenges of combining covert manipulation with using her hands to sign.
