See/Saw

An Immersion into a Magician's Mind.

The Experience

Join up-close illusionist Siegfried Tieber for an interactive evening of sleight of hand. Following a sold-out, critically adored run in Los Angeles, Siegfried brings his extraordinary mastery of card magic to Brooklyn. "It was just wonderful, every moment of that," Penn Jillette once said of Siegfried's dazzling skill.

See/Saw is an intimate experience where you’ll keep an eye on the magician’s every move, and even participate, as he astounds you with his card conjuring. Throughout the evening, Siegfried will answer your questions and share the philosophy behind his unique form of magic.

Tickets

Siegfried Tieber

Siegfried Tieber is a Los Angeles-based performer and sleight-of-hand magician. He was born and raised in Ecuador, where his passion for magic began. His first international appearance was in 2011 in Bogotá, Colombia. In 2015, Siegfried headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world, where his performance was highly praised by critics and media outlets. Most recently, he was invited to be part of Penn & Teller: Fool Us, a television series celebrating magic and featuring the legendary performance duo.

Siegfried is a member and regular performer at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood – an exclusive private club for the Academy of Magical Arts. Although he has appeared in a few film productions and collaborated with numerous organizations, his heart is in performing close-up magic in front of live audiences – always with his sleeves rolled up.
