The Illusionists

Date: 12 Nov 2018

Eight of the world’s best illusionists present a new show, packed with astonishing acts of visual, mental and optical illusion. 

This year’s performers include The Trickster, aka Jeff Hobson, whose unique brand of comedy magic leaves audiences laughing long after the curtain goes down; The Mentalist, aka Chris Cox, a multi-award-winning mind-manipulator; Brisbane-born Robyn Sharpe, aka The Warrior; an ex-gymnast whose crossbow act has been described as “one of the most dynamic and dazzling danger displays in the world”, and The Inventor, aka Kevin James, a prolific innovator and consultant of magic who has contributed to many famous tricks including illusions by Penn & Teller, Mark Wilson and David Copperfield.
