Downtown Magic: Christian Cagigal

A tiny magic show, performed, live, on a big screen! Join magician Christian Cagigal, as he weaves tales, dark fables and strange happenings into an intimate evening of mystery and wonder. The entire show is performed under the watchful eye of a video camera and projected as large as can be, above Cagigal, so you can't miss a thing.

Christian Cagigal has been performing his trademark blend of theatre, storytelling, and magic as an Artist in Residence at EXIT Theatre, in San Francisco, since 2006, and as an Artist in Residence with Beyond the Mountain, in Montréal, since 2012. He's been named a Finalist for the Theatre Bay Area Award for Best Solo Performer, two years in a row; recipient of a Mastermind Award by the SF Weekly; and three time winner of the Best Magician of the Bay Award by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. 

His previous shows include, the popular Pandora Experiment, the long-running OBSCURA, the secretive happenings of The Collection, and the critically acclaimed Now and at the Hour  which has been seen in New York, Montréal, Chicago, New Orleans, Minneapolis and San Francisco. The performance film of Now and at the Hour, directed by award winning filmmaker H.P. Mendoza, is due out soon.

Christian has consulted for A.C.T.'s MFA program, Shotgun Players, Crowded Fire Theatre Company, The Traveling Jewish Theatre Company, Marin Shakespeare Company, EXIT Theatre, Wilderness, and Tilted Frame.

He's the Co-Founder of the new Fog City Magic Fest, and the new owner of the San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour, a 17 year tradition in the city by the bay.  

Christian can also be seen in the independent, power-pop, musical film, Fruit Fly written and directed by H.P. Mendoza.

"I am not sure I have seen a performer this at ease with himself, his space, his obvious command of what he is doing and with a NYC Village crowd…ever."
