Award-winning master magician Luis Carreon has announced two performances of his original solo show, Bending Minds and Bending Dreams, at one of the most renowned magic shops in the country, Magic Inc.

Fresh from almost winning Tengo Talento (the Spanish language equivalent of America’s Got Talent), Luis presents an evening of modern magic and mentalism featuring classic close-up parlor magic with a fresh twist, as well as his own original illusions with intense, dramatic elements and his penchant for the bizarre. With audience participation throughout, Luis takes his audiences on a journey through what magic is and what it can do, and ultimately, what dreams mean and how to follow them. Bending Minds and Bending Dreams is an exercise in watching the impossible unfold before your eyes, experiencing wonder, and learning to believe in the surreal.

Friday, February 15 and Saturday February 16, 2013 @ 7:00pm.
Jasper Theatre Club at Magic Inc., 5082 N Lincoln (just south of Foster Ave).
$15 tickets must be purchased in advance at MagicInc.net.

Magic Inc. is quietly tucked away in Lincoln Square, and you may have passed it without realizing it is the oldest continuously family-run brick and mortar magic shop in North America, and the leading-edge magic source for magic tricks, books, DVDs, lessons and lectures. The shop has been frequented by such magical legends as Harry Blackstone (Sr. & Jr.), Penn & Teller, Lance Burton, David Copperfield, Mac King, Johnny Thompson, John Fisher, David Blaine, and many more.

Luis is actually the head demonstrator at Magic Inc. Here’s a fun clip of him blowing a kid’s mind at the shop:
