Abracadabra! Meet The Illusionists coming to the UAE
Get ready to be transported to the glory days of tricks and wizardry as The Illusionists return to the UAE this November.
– Party In The Park returns
After a sell-out success in the UAE last year, The Illusionists return with a new cast and new tricks, and all-new wow factor. Eight highly-skilled performers, each with their own specific area of expertise, will have audiences scratching their heads and gasping, “How did they do that?”
The stage troupe brought their show to the Dubai World Trade Centre last September in a sold out two-week spell. Acts such as The Deceptionist, The Warrior, The Unusualist and The Master Magician performed feats of Russian roulette, levitation, mind-reading, disappearances and escapes – with plenty of pyrotechnics to boot.
This time, seven new acts (there’s a duo this year) are on board for the November run: The Alchemist, The Showman, The Escapist, The Clairvoyants, The Charlatan, in a show titled The Illusionists 1903 which promises to transport audiences back to the golden age of magic, a time when conjurers were the true rock stars of the day.
Showcasing the origins of some of the greatest and most dangerous illusions ever built as well as some never-before-seen experiments, get ready for some serious turn of the century grandeur
The World Trade Centre will host four performances featuring giant 3D projections, video screens and other cutting edge technology.
