Watch in wonder as Magical Bones puts on a performance that brings together dance and magic. You’ll see one of his signature routines, which will include his incredible backflip card trick. Bones will also perform a set inspired by Henry ‘Box’ Brown, a 19th-century magician and mesmerist who escaped from a former life of slavery by posting himself to abolitionists.
