N.U.O.S. In collaboration with Truelove Tours Theatre Company proudly presents
Nothing Up Our Sleeves’ first full-length comedy magic show!
Written and Directed by Darren Gooding, (the writer/performer of The Cabinet of Leopold Thorn and Manly Truelove’s Theatrical Anecdotes), Inventions of the Impossible features our merry band of sumptuously attired Illusionists, led by Waist-coated Welsh Behemoth, and National-Treasure-in-waiting, Dean Allen Jones and featuring Masters of the Bizarre, Harvey Kennett and Steve Ward.
Inventions of the Impossible subversively mixes the anarchic spirit of Modern Street Magic with the showmanship and flair of the Golden Age of Victorian Stage Illusion; the rational and the irrational collide in a world of Surreal Comedy, Steampunk Science and Fairytale Fantasy. Sometimes wondrous, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes macabre, but absolutely always outrageously dressed. “Inventions of the Impossible” promises an eccentric treat for all devotees of the utterly improbable. From Close Up Miracles to Grand Stage Illusions, join the intrepid Gentlemen of N.U.O.S. as they endeavour to catalogue a compendium of confusions: How certain is the Uncertainty Principle? Can a laser perform a card trick? What does it take to become a “Glamorous Assistant” and do an inordinate amount of time travellers really harbour homicidal thoughts regarding their grandfathers?
The event can also feature a screening of N.U.O.S. Comedy Short “Magic: The Hidden Horror” – a cutting edge ‘documentary’ exposing the growing urban disorder that is anti-social Street Magic! For more information about our Film Projects check out our Videos page.
The Sphinx shall speak Prophesy, The Teleporter will be assembled, and Our Heroes will perspire as they furtively struggle to find your card without peeking...
Inventions of the Impossible premiered at Colchester Arts Centre on Wednesday 28th November 2012 and was rapturously received by a full house of magic devotees. Check out our Production Shots to see the group in action. The show is now available for booking for small / medium scale Theatres and Arts Centres.
