Brian Smith, Victorian Conjurer and Clairvoyant, is a Southern California-based performer or magical and psychic entertainment who appears regularly at private parties, corporate events and charity galas. Currently he is also starring in his own interactive one-man show, Victorian Magick, which will debut at the Bembridge House on September 23, 2011 at 7 p.m. His unique style of performance takes participants on a journey back in time when wealthy patrons regularly invited magicians, mind-readers, and mediums into their Victorian homes to amuse and amaze intimate gatherings of family and friends. In those surroundings the parlor became the stage and the audience, thoroughly enthralled, looked on gleefully, mere inches from the show.
Visitors witness demonstrations in nineteenth century conjuring, observe experiments in Victorian mind-reading, and even participate in an authentic antebellum seance where spirits appear. As friends and families joined together over a century ago to explorE the mysteries that lie beyond, spectators join together today to experience the unknown and possibly even travel beyond the veil to partake in a small slice of the supernatural. Victorian Magick combines magic, mind-reading and mysticism to deliver a unique experience to the participants. With an intimate audience limited to 40 individuals, guests will be treated to an enchanting evening of exceptional entertainment in an authentic setting.
