WHY WHITE BUNNIES NEVER HOP THE TROLLEY
Magic and Mystery Returns to NuLu this First Friday
In reverence of All Saints Day and Day of the Dead, Louisville area based magic man, Darshwood; will pay homage to history’s many great masters of illusion on the evening of November 1st at Shine in the East Market Street District. As part of a running series of live performances, Darshwood has already been causing quite a stir of bedazzlement and wonder on First Fridays at Shine this fall season by demonstrating some of the most puzzling curiosities of his craft and exposing audiences to the mind’s fascinating tendency to be naturally fooled by illusions; an exercise for the intellect. Sorry, no white bunnies.
Having appropriately titled this program “Innocent Deceptions”, the international award winning magician, Darshwood, who has performed for such celebrities as Martin Scorsese, Miranda Lambert and the Green Bay Packers and has now been dubbed “The Charming Trickster, himself” will be dedicating all three performances of this upcoming First Friday installment to the champions of prestidigitation that have come and gone long before him; giants upon whose shoulders the modern conjurer now stands. Reproductions of age old magic tricks that were once performed on grand stages in colossal amphitheatres by masterful artists such as Harry Houdini, Thurston the Great and Chung Ling Soo (the honorable Chinese magician who died tragically while attempting the infamous bullet catch trick in 1918) will be candidly presented by Darshwood. Though he insists that he will not be attempting to catch bullets this evening, this will most assuredly be an extremely unique opportunity to experience and encounter the sophisticated and mysterious art of magic in a most intimate atmosphere. Expect to be amazed, bewildered and inspired as the charming trickster leads you on a journey through the vast and limitless realm of your own imagination.
Shine: A Wellness Studio in NuLu devoted to nurturing a graceful life through movement, music and fun is located on East Jefferson Street but is accessed through the main entrance from the parking lot on East Market Street between Shelby and Clay. It is the little green building behind The Green Building.
