Zi's Magic will take you on a journey that leaves you unable to trust your own senses, as miracles and impossibilities happen right before your eyes


Zi is a Magician, Mentalist, Performer, and Scientist based in the St Louis region, with a deep passion for inspiring Wonder, creating Magic, and sparking your imagination. In addition to his work as a Magician, Zi is also an accomplished Scientist with an interest in Neuroscience and Perception, and volunteers extensively to promote passion and interest in Science. Zi uses Magic to teach about the neuroscience of perception, illustrating the ways that our senses can be tricked, and shedding light on the shortcuts and blind spots that we all share.

Playing with Impossibilities


Playing with Impossibilities is an interactive and participatory stage show that features mind-reading, feats of skill, and mysterious psychological influence. Come and be transported to a world of miraculous luck, mental mystery, and psychological impossibilites. See the Impossible made real!

Psychology and Science of Magic


Magicians can perform seemingly impossible feats. Objects appear and disappear, change and transform. But how do these things happen? Zi teaches the science of how our senses really work, and how the work of magicians exposes the flaws in our perception that are normally invisible to us in everyday life.
