|Professor DR Shreiber|
|As a professor of natural philosophy, presenter of experimental conjuring, and exhibitor of legerdemain, Professor DR Schreiber evokes the spirit of early magical performances. His audiences experience illusion and mystery in the same way that 18th and 19th century aristocrats, nobles and elite would have seen it, in their home, mansion, or estate with a private demonstration. Professor DR Schreiber brings parlor magic back into parlors. |

|The World of the Historical Conjurer |
Early in the 18th century, magic (or conjuring as it was referred) emerged as a genuine art form and entertainment. Professors of natural philosophy and conjuring would rent taverns, legitimate theaters or lecture halls for the exhibition and displays of legerdemain, necromancy, or what would today be called “illusion” and “magic tricks.” Top dollar would be paid by the citizens of Europe to see the latest discoveries in the science of “natural philosophy.”
Today, Professor DR Schreiber presents an historic look at the beginnings of modern magic in his performances and exhibitions. Join Professor DR Schreiber as he leads you on a stroll through the past centuries of conjuring entertainment.
His unique presentations entertain while educating the audience about historical events, literary and cultural figures, and the science and art of conjuring.
Now you too can experience magic, as it was centuries ago.
