The rites of passage in our lives are special and memorable moments. This year, Magic On The Edge will reveal the humour in these important milestone moments through storytelling and magic.
Remember the wonder of childhood where everything was new and Grandpa was the best magician you knew? How about the turmoil of Adolescence - punctuated by change, emotion, and awkward first relationships? The joy of travel, and then settling into your twilight as you discover that you’ve become the family Elder and it is up to you to pass on the dreams and hopes for the future.
A show for the whole family. Everyone will enjoy the sense of fun displayed as we walk through the typical situations we all experience.
I think that real magic comes from real life – the most amazing magic is in the stories of peoples lives that happen around us every day. So often, we may find ourselves stuck, struggling to get through situations on our own. Sharing and laughing at these stories helps us release the tension and share the experience. Drew Magic is committed to making a difference in helping people emapthise with others.
From the wonder of being children mesmerised by grandpa's magically appearing coins to the shock of noticing the disappearing years as we get older, Magic On The Edge will be an unforgettable show.
Playing at Café Outside the Square at 7:30pm, March 10 – 14.
Presented by Drew Magic, a member of The International Brotherhood of Magicians (I.B.M.), one of the local Magician clubs. The I.B.M. is the same organisation which runs The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, California. The local chapter meets in a historic WW2 bunker in Thebarton that has been decorated to be an ideal magician’s haven. The aim of the club is to develop and encourage magicians (of all genders and ages) through providing mentoring and performance opportunities. People who are interested in learning magic, enjoying the hobby, or moving to something more are encouraged to contact the club through the facebook page @Magic on the Edge or @DrewMagic.
Magic on the Edge was started by Drew in 2016 to support development and mentoring of new artists. One of the show’s objectives is to introduce magicians to performing in the Fringe. Several of this year’s local magicians performing in the Adelaide Fringe debuted through Magic on the Edge.
