In October, Melbourne International Arts Festival is inviting the curious and the brave to dine with Scott Silven in At The Illusionist's Table at the historic Chapter House, where the acclaimed mentalist will weave tales based on his childhood in Scotland while bringing a touch of magic to the cosy feast for 24.
THU 3 - SUN 20 OCTOBER 2019
At The Illusionist's Table
The lights are dim and the evening is alight with expectation. The table is set for 24. You and your fellow diners have accepted an invitation to feast on the impossible.
Your host is Scott Silven: mentalist and raconteur of impeccable taste. As a meticulous and mouthwatering array of extravagances from the award winning culinary team at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins arrive at your table, Silven concocts a banquet of more otherworldly wonders that will delight and astound in equal measure.
This is the event that has floored jaws around the world, turning even the most iron-clad sceptics into ardent admirers in the course of one decadent evening. As with previous Festival works The Echo of the Shadow (2016) and Taylor Mac's A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2017) this is once-in-a-lifetime stuff, and we can't help but smile knowing what's in store for Melbourne.
