An Evening with David Copperfield

Magic has the power to inspire, amaze, and make the impossible a reality. How did sleight of hand and grand illusion evolve into one of the most fascinating and intricate performance arts in history? In an illuminating conversation with Mark Pocan, world-renowned magician David Copperfield uncovers the history of magic from its origins, including well-known figures such as Georges Méliès and Harry Houdini.

David Copperfield, the magician who floated over the Grand Canyon, walked through the Great Wall of China, and made the Statue of Liberty disappear, is an Emmy award-winning illusionist and performer and the founder of The International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts. Congressman Mark Pocan (moderator), who represents Wisconsin’s 2nd District, has performed magic since the age of 8 and, most recently, has worked with David Copperfield to pass a “Magic as an Art” resolution in Congress.
