Lukas Stark, Mystery Entertainer
Saturday 22 June, 9pm
Tickets $12/advance, $15/door.
Lukas Stark has been performing magic for so long, he can’t remember exactly when he got started. Inspired by the legendary magicians and everything from philosophical literature to psychology textbooks to sci-fi movies, Lukas engages his audiences with a thought-provoking and often startling blend of mentalism, suggestion, and sleight of hand. His props might include playing cards, antique small objects, strait jackets and recovered old creepy items. He is the impresario behind a monthly vaudeville variety show in Toronto, and performs at resorts, theatres, trucker bars and on television. Lukas encourages and challenges skepticism, and entices audiences to consider and re-consider what they understand and believe about psychology and science, possibility and impossibility.
