At the Illusionist’s Table

About The Project

In early 2018, Potluck Arts introduced a new series called OUT OF THE ORDINARY EXPERIENCE – unique and one of a kind contemporary arts experiences, that are designed to take place all around NWA and in various venues from restaurants to warehouses to ice skating rinks — whatever fits the experience best.

At the Illusionist’s Table was the first OUT OF THE ORDINARY EXPERIENCE curated by Potluck Arts and presented in NWA newest cultural space, Brightwater, Center for the Study of Food—for an unforgettably exquisite sensory experience combining food, wine, whiskey, conversation, and wonder that Entertainment Weekly said “is a magical, unforgettable theatrical meal…..not to be missed.”

About The Performance

After sell-out runs around the world, At the Illusionist’s Table premiered in Arkansas for a limited and exclusive 7-event run, January 30-February 4, 2018. Acclaimed illusionist Scott Silven hosted evenings of fine dining, whisky and wine tasting interwoven with illusion, mentalism and storytelling.  Candles flickered. Whisky poured. Conversation stirred. Before each night was over, thoughts transcended; mysteries materialized and dreams were revealed.  At the Illusionist’s Table is a modern-day marvel unlike any other in the world of magic—an opportunity to savor a customized menu prepared by seasoned chefs, sample delicious wine and whiskey, strike up conversation, and enjoy intimate mind-bending illusion and culinary immersion uniquely experienced.
