Award-winning magician Siegfried Tieber will play host, historian, and illusionist as he guides intimate audiences on an unconventional journey.
Atlas Obscura presents See/Saw, an evening with performer and award-winning magician Siegfried Tieber, opening on Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017 and running for four weeks.
Card magic has been lauded as "the poetry of magic." Due to its versatility and range, the deck of cards is paralleled with the piano. More than mere printed pieces of paper, this instrument embodies chance, chaos, and luck.
See/Saw is an invitation to take a closer look at the art of conjuring with playing cards. It's an immersive experience where there are no spectators, only active participants. Host, performer, and close-up illusionist Siegfried Tieber takes us by the hand-metaphorically, that is-through a journey where the important question isn't how, but why.
Siegfried Tieber is a Los Angeles-based performer and sleight-of-hand magician. Born and raised in Ecuador, his first international appearance was in 2011 in Bogota, Colombia. In 2015, Tieber headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, where his performance was highly praised by critics and media outlets. Most recently, he was invited to be part of Penn & Teller: Fool Us, a television series featuring the legendary performance duo (yes, he did fool them).
Although Tieber has appeared in venues large and small around the world, his heart is in performing close-up magic for intimate audiences-always with his sleeves rolled up.
