I.D.: Intimate Deception is an uncanny demonstration of sleight of hand, and psychological illusions performed in a close up setting. This 30 minute personal, blackbox show is not just about tricks, it’s about how magic can be used as metaphors for time, the significance of numbers, and connecting with strangers in surprising ways.
