VIRTUAL Sophisticated Magic with Jeanette Andrews

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Virtual

Through the Ether[net]: Interactive Magic and Illusory Demonstrations

This elegant, interactive magic performance with Jeanette Andrews occurs on screen, as well as in viewers’ homes and own hands! Weaving together science and folklore with performance and experiments, she'll lead the audience in co-creating the performance. This presentation will combine pieces from her magic performance repertoire, punctuated with interactive components such as scientific visual illusion demonstration, in which viewers learn about the eye and how to make an image disappear. Jeanette also narrates careful instructions for interactive magic tricks that audience members perform along with her in their own homes, and create magic without knowing how they accomplished these magical feats! For adults and older (9+) children.


Please bring four (4) playing cards (that you do not feel sentimental attachment to) to the program. If you would like printable cards, visit  https://www.jeanetteandrews.com/download
. Or view the download as a guide to draw your own on paper or index cards.

REGISTER HERE for this event. It will not be recorded.
 
Presented in partnership by the Glencoe Public Library, the Highland Park Public Library, and the Vernon Area Public Library. 

About Jeanette Andrews:  Ms. Andrews is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today and has presented commissioned and site-specific works for The Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt, the International Museum of Surgical Science, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
