Bisexuality Is Magic
The Show That Could Go Either Way
“Is bisexuality magic? Marcus thinks so, but the bisexual activist has a problem. It’s the dress-rehearsal of his new project and not everything is going to plan.
Is his rope routine going to tie him up in knots?
Will his director really let him saw someone’s gender stereotypes in half?
And can supporting act Magenta Surprise pull off their interpretive dance tribute to the bisexual flag in time?
It’s one day to opening night. What could possibly go wrong?”
You’ve never seen a show like this. Is it a play or a performance – “Bisexuality Is Magic” needs to pick a side! Set during the dress rehearsal of a show called “Bisexuality Isn’t Magic”, beleaguered activist-magician Marcus battles with his interfering director as much as with stereotypes about bisexuality. Follow his struggles to put together the show he wants to deliver: an amazing but somehow educational spectacular about his pet subject – bisexuality.
If you’ve ever wondered if there’s a funny side to biphobia, then this is the show for you. Where else will you see a bisexual magic show?
Although set in a dress rehearsal with an invited audience, the members of the audience invited onto the stage to participate in the magic tricks are genuine members of the public and not actors.
The performance lasts 1 hour 45 minutes including a 15 minute interval.
