A Fabulous Teleportation Experiment
In A Fabulous Teleportation Experiment, an endearing traveller of space and time accidentally ends up in Adelaide.
He is from another planet many, many years into the future and a long way away.
So, while he has a 45-minute window of opportunity to be with us, he demonstrates how he can fool our senses with science and magic.
Professor Ulric has a warm stage persona and the audience in the almost-packed-out tent, Cornucopia at Gluttony (thankfully, well air-conditioned), responded well to his stagecraft.
His magnetic personality was also responsible for fierce competition to go on stage in a number of audience-participation scenes. This reviewer was one of them, too, holding aloft a red curtain for the Professor’s finale.
Through sleight-of-hand, misdirection, and some fun blobs and smoke thanks to “science”, this audience of Adelaideans made our visitor welcome and were handsomely entertained in the process.
