What you'll do

Experience the impossible with Steve Bagienski, a magician, scientist and psychologist who researches how we feel when we watch and learn to perform magic. You’ll watch conjuring tricks and experience fake mind-reading that will reveal how easy it is to believe in magic and pseudoscience.

The performances will be transcribed (STT) by StageText.
