'Phenomenal storytelling...mind-blowing tricks'

A Younger Theatre

SEDA (The Sorcerers for the Extinction of Death and Associates) in association with HighTide present
The Extinction Event

"History is full of figures claiming power over life and death, but now there are people claiming that death is not, after all, inevitable. These people are not magicians. They're scientists."

At the end of 60 minutes, mankind will vanish. “A magician is an actor playing the part of a god”, or so said Hugo Cedar. So, what happens when science makes gods of us all?

Hypnotist magicians David Aula and Simon Evans present another mind-hopping, time-space-continuum-busting, misdirection-bending examination of what really happens when science starts thinking for itself.

'What tricks will we have it do?' Not the story of a magic trick. The story of real magic. Not a matter of ‘if’ and ‘how’, but ‘when’ and ‘where’.

Philosophy with a deadline. Tick Tock. Now… relax.

From the makers of 2017 hit The Vanishing Man, we are delighted they are returning to our Festivals again this year.

Running time: 1h

Recommended age: 12+
