Kronzek, Allan The Art of Fooling History,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater
Everyone loves magic, but few know its amazing history, or how past societies regarded the art. In this lively and informative presentation, magician and bestselling author Allan Zola Kronzek combines live performance, audience participation, paintings, photographs, and theatrical posters to bring to life The Art of Fooling throughout the ages. Audiences will learn why medieval performers were sometimes feared as sorcerers, why a treatise on witch persecution was also the first book to explain magic tricks, and how the scientific revolution changed people's perception of magic--and the world. The Art of Fooling is more than a magic. It brings together the elements of history, science, theater and art in a presentation that is as educational as it is entertaining. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-aclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.
