ESOTERICA


Esoterica is a dazzling one-man foray into the realms of philosophy and metaphysics as seen through the lens of conjuring and stage craft. Armed with little more than a regulation deck of fifty-two playing cards, a razor sharp wit, and an inexhaustible wealth of mostly useless knowledge, master showman Eric Walton deftly navigates such perennial philosophical questions as “Destiny vs Free Will”, “What is Perception?” and “Is This Your Card?”
