Welcome to the Act, where we promise magic, jazz and delight - now watch closely as these performers disappear before your very eyes. The only problem? Neither of them actually want to. With one hour to reverse the effects, they risk disappearing into thin air forever, leaving the Act embarrassingly void of hosts.

Woven together with loop pedals, smoke and mirrors, Vanishing Act is part cabaret and part raucous clown performance. Looking at broken dreams and our crippling obsession with success, it asks: is being invisible in a status-obsessed world as tragic as our expectations make it to be?

Vanishing Act is written & performed by emerging theatre-makers and musicians Rosie Clynes & Candace Miles
