In a world where life sometimes is masked with smoke and mirrors for many to hide; and secrets to linger, Daniel Bauer, the successor to the legendary escape artist Harry Houdini brings to life a collection of short stories about his personal experiences living with HIV/AIDS.
Reality is, many people still believe people living with HIV/AIDS should be feared. That those living with this incurable illness are not strong enough to live or test the boundaries of the human body. Beyond Belief is the beginning of a new chapter in the fight against HIV / AIDS Stigma. Daniel Bauer, the only publicly open HIV positive escape artist, will continue to challenge the limits of the human body, both mentally and physically through perilous, death defying escapes.
Beyond Belief is the story. . . Daniel’s story which he weaves all of his heart and emotion through the delicate arts of magic and escape, setting the stage for what’s to come in future years as he reclaims a legacy that was nearly lost because of the fear of HIV many in society still possess and express today.
There are no big props! There is no smoke! And the only mirror used in this show is in a dressing room! Touch, listen, taste and see!! Your senses will come alive in this suspenseful, humorous and emotional thrill of a production that takes you behind the success, the fall and the rise of Daniel Bauer’s life.
Prepare to witness the arts of magic and escape up-close and personal. Prepare to be inspired by stories of triumph. Prepare to be captivated Beyond Belief.
Following the performance, Daniel will return to the stage for a Q/A session with audience members allowing for a deeper perspective on the experience and his life.
