Choreography for inorganic elements and magic

In this research project we look closer at the evolution of the magician’s craft. From the street performers of the Middle Ages, till the daredevils from the 19th century Golden Age of Magic, till early 20th century vaudeville. In particular, we are interested in the magician’s capacity to mystify and create make-belief by the use of props which all have a certain symbolic signification. How do these props function in a magician’s trick of creating make-belief? The intention of the research project is to shed light on the relationship between objects and fiction.

Concept: Ola Maciejewska (PL), togther with and Alberto Novello (IT) and Bogomir Doringer (SRB)
