Monday 9th July
The influence of Ancient Egypt on the History of Magic
9th July 2018 - 7.30pm
A lecture by Nacho Ares
We have dozens of cultural references regarding magic in the time of the Pharaohs. Texts, images and traditions found in the Valley of the Nile have inspired many magicians along the 19th century, when theatres and spectacles showed devices motivated for the modern Egyptomania.
In this lecture on 9th July, Nacho Ares will take us on a journey from the first mentions to magic as illusionism in Ancient Egypt (2500 a.C.) to modern magicians who have employed archaeological motives and designs inspired in Ancient Egypt.
Don't miss Nacho's first lecture in London on this fascinating aspect of magical heritage.
Hope to see you there.
