Welcome to the fair. You are about to discover the death of magic.
Following a massive hit season at the 2020 Taipei Arts Festival, artists Sean Chou, Chen Yu-Dien and Wei Wang invite you to witness the extraordinary in Transhumanism: A Fair. What is modern magic? Discover the power of hypnosis, illusion, mind-expanding games and body manipulation as these world-class artists discuss, play and experiment, delving deeper into the world of illusion. You’ll be left wondering what’s possible and what’s real in this mind-bending performance exploring our cognitive and physical potential.
Presented in Mandarin with English subtitles.
This concept of work is drawn from Transhumanism: A Fair commissioned by Taipei Performing Arts Center in 2020.

“Sean Chou is the most charismatic magician in Taiwan. Every time he opens his mouth to speak, he creates a black hole with the power to drag you in.” - Christine Chu 曲家瑞 (well-known writer/art critic in Taiwan).
