Jeanette Andrews - Magician/Experiential Illusionist

Ms. Andrews is considered one of the brightest, most innovative young artists in illusion today and magic is her life’s work. She has created the medium “Experiential Illusionism,” combining illusions with interactive performance, art and immersive theater. Her work has been internationally praised by PBS, The Daily Mail, the Chicago Tribune, NewCity and the Daily Herald. Jeanette has performed live for thousands across the country at private events, Fortune 500 companies, and museums as well as countless others on television. She comes to us fresh off of performances for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and being a “Escape to Create” Artist-in-Residence, the only magician worldwide known to have ever been named to an artist-in-residence position. “My work differs drastically from other magicians, as my performances combine the techniques of my craft with influences not typically seen in magic, such as installation art and quantum physics to create a deeply contemplative take on the art of the impossible,” said Andrews. She then leaves the participants astonished by turning the traditional magic narrative on its head to give audiences an electrifying and sophisticated experience beyond the normal. Her performance is far more intellectual than pulling a rabbit out of a hat: Andrews uses sensory anomalies and scientific oddities as a gateway to bridge everyday life to a special heightened world. Andrews’ work is a genuinely new experience—magic for the 21st century, an unforgettable evening that will leave you speechless and enchanted.

“[Jeanette is] killing it, empowers the audience, and uses science and art to make her mark.” - PBS – WTTW Chicago, Chicago Tonight, Chloe Riley

“Fascinating.... [Jeanette is] baffling the internet.” - The Daily Mail, Carly Stern
