THE AMAZING JOHNATHAN DOCUMENTARY + Live Magic
January 17 @ 19:45 - 22:00
THE AMAZING JOHNATHAN DOCUMENTARY + Live Magic by Matiss Duhon at Harris Academy South Norwood (17 JAN 19:45):
Johnathan is diagnosed with a terminal heart condition, is given one year to live, and is forced to retire his act. Cut to three years later: Johnathan is not dead, much to everyone’s amazement, and documentarian Ben Berman films the illusionist on an epic comeback tour.
Built into the heart of this quick-witted and highly meta story is an indelible commentary on the process and ethics of making a documentary today. Issues of negotiation and access become the central threads that reveal, and further cloud, our understanding of the elusive (and amazing?) Johnathan.
Join us from 19:45 for a magically entertaining performance from juggler, comedy, and cephalopods expert Matiss Duhon.
