THE DISAPPEARING ACT IS THE NEW SHOW FROM OPEN SKY. IT PREMIERED AT THE COURTYARD, HEREFORD IN AUTUMN 2019 AND TOURED TO THE MIDLANDS. IT WILL GO ON A NATIONAL TOUR SPRING 2020 DATES TO FOLLOW SOON.

 

 

Blending new-writing and visual physical theatre, Open Sky tell the tale of magician’s assistant Edie Rose. On the eve of her fortieth year Edie Rose is finally hosting her own show. To assist she conjures up two younger versions of herself. Together the three Edies (aged 20,40 and 60) re-examine the loves, hopes and losses of her life using séance, mentalism and dark, mysterious magic. The Disappearing Act is an alchemy of perspectives: the hopefulness of youth, the wisdom of experience and the disappearing act of ageing.

Based on true stories from female performers.
