PHOTO FLASH: Take a Look at the Virtual Presentation of THE PRESENT at Geffen Playhouse

Article Pixel

The Present is inspired by master illusionist and storyteller Helder Guimarães' own life experience with quarantine during childhood. Using his signature mind-bending illusions, Guimarães leads us through a funny, moving and ultimately illuminating story of lessons he learned when he least expected it.

Check out photos below!

The Present takes place virtually via the Zoom platform with a maximum of 25 participants per show. Each participant is mailed a sealed mystery package in advance, the contents of which are only revealed during the course of each performance as Guimarães' story unfolds. In a unique twist, The Present provides both a virtual and physical experience for the audience, as magic also takes place in their own hands, in their own home environment.
