Das Fest

The latest interactive mindreading experience from Vienna's Master Illusionist.

In a room full of strangers, there’s a man who seems to know everything.

When you indulged in a pleasure you should not have.
How you finally said “I can’t”.
Who it was, that carried you from chaos to the beautiful calm.

Come in. You are invited. ‘Peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.’*

The surreal, thrilling sequel to his interactive show Das Spiel, DAS FEST is a new mindreading experience from Philipp Oberlohr. With his mystifying mix of live art, illusion and wit, Oberlohr celebrates the past and future of us.

Oberlohr studied at the University of Innsbruck, Austria (BA Theology) and at the International School of Corporeal Mime in London.

In the crossover of illusion and theatre he meaningfully engages audiences, going to the heart of their beliefs, memories and realities.
