Hello, my name is Vincenzo Ravina. I’m a magician and… a collector of weird stuff.
In this unusual interactive show, I’ll invite you into a pocket universe, a dimension beyond that which is known to humankind, and take you on a guided, interactive tour of my collection of magical artifacts. During our tour of the Twilight Lodge, we’ll bestow luck to the unlucky, see what’s inside the Anything Box, try to divine the future, and maybe even test out a Coincidence Machine.
Magic from the Twilight Lodge is absurd and fun and unlike other magic shows you’re likely to see.
As an audience member, you’ll be participating and making choices that alter the course of the experience all the way through. You’ll need a working camera and microphone to participate. Tickets are per household, so bring your friends and family along! There are a limited number of Pay What You Can tickets available if the regular ticket price would cause you any hardship.
You will be emailed a Zoom link before the day of the event. If you do not get the Zoom link, please email vravina (at) gmail (dot) com.
Q: How does this actually work?
A: You buy a ticket and a day before the event, I’ll send you the Zoom link! On the day of the event, you join the Zoom meeting and I take you on a tour of weird magical artifacts. At several points during the show, I’ll ask people to unmute to participate in the show, perhaps by choosing a number or colour, flipping a coin, or by playing a game with me. Their choices will affect the course of the show. The show runs about 45 – 60 minutes.
Q: Do I need one ticket for each person?
A: No, the tickets are per device, so however many people you can crowd around your computer screen is OK!
Q: Do I need to download Zoom?
A: Yes, please! Download it before the show at https://zoom.us/download. If you already have it downloaded, for the best experience, I recommend checking that your Zoom app is updated. I also suggest you attend the show on your computer rather than a phone, and have a direct ethernet connection to your computer or try to be close to your wireless router to avoid laggy internet.
Q: Is this show for kids?
A: All ages are welcome, but the magic is not directed toward younger children, and is most engaging for children aged 10+ and adults who appreciate absurdity.
Q: Do I have to be on camera?
A: No, but the show is much better if you are! I promise that no audience member is insulted, embarrassed, or made fun of during the show. And if you do participate, you won’t be doing anything too difficult: you won’t be asked to do math or recite Shakespeare. If you can play tic-tac-toe, that’s about as complicated as things get.
Q: Is the show any good?
A: My audiences seem to think so! Here are some quotes from past audience members:
“Truly remarkable magic.”
“Thank you for thoroughly blowing our minds!”
“Imaginative, well written, with some strong magic moments.”
Q: My fridge is singing a mournful dirge.
A: That’s great to hear. You sound like exactly the kind of person who should come to my show!
Q: Are you available for private bookings?
A: I sure am! Email me at vravina (at) gmail (dot) com.
Q: I have a question that is not on this list.
A: Email me at vravina (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll be happy to answer it!
