I love a bit of magic! It is rare that you get the chance to be truly amazed as an adult, but on the occasion that this does happen its like being a child again and I for one truly start believing in magic!
Impossible is a compendium of magic tricks and stunts from a whole heap of talented illusionists and will run in London’s West End from 24th July – 29th August.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the exclusive Impossible press launch at London’s Hospital Club in Central London where not only were we treated to a sneak peak of the show, we also got to hang out with the performers. Oh, and there was wine…. Hurrah!
First up to perform was illusionist Ben Hart, a former Magic Circle prize winner who’s show, The Vanishing Boy, sold out on countless occasions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Ben will be preforming as part of the Impossible troupe – watch a sneak peak of his act here!
Following on from Ben, we were treated to an all encompassing tech extravaganza from “Modern day Houdini,” Jamie Allan. I was WILDLY impressed by Allen’s routine, which fused magic and technology together to create some outstanding digital art. He also SAWED A WOMAN IN HALF USING A LAZER! Watch for yourself below!
Also performing at the launch were street magician Magical Bones (above) who treated us to a card trick and a back flip, escapologist and magician Ali Cook (below) who treated us to some classic water tank action, and MIND reader Chris Cox who generally treated us to a witty banter! I saw some genuinely insane tricks that have me questioning everything I thought was possible!
