The Amazing Vanishing Man
The Amazing Vanishing Man worked hard to achieve international recognition for his daring escape act, but by 1926, vaudeville has declined while the Vanishing Man remains stuck in a contract with a traveling troupe, performing for crowds obsessed with old, nostalgic acts rather than bold new ideas.
In this prelude to the musical album 'no Matic', the Amazing Vanishing Man seeks to find a way out of his obligations with his greatest trick yet: escaping his own body!
