  • Aaron Matthews
  • Mysterion
  • Ben “Racoon Tamer” Train


In the past year we have been forced to make drastic and rapid changes if we wanted to continue performing. We have assembled a panel of performers, each of whom has made their own transition into the virtual space and found a way to perform from home. The panel will share their experiences, what works, what doesn’t, the challenges they have overcome and the gadgets and gizmos that make virtual performances possible.

Toronto: Illusionarium

Back in October, we posted an open call for Jamie Allan's "Magic Maze Live" which has rebranded as "Illusionarium." 

In the same theme as the "Immersive Van Gogh" experience, this exhibit boasts socially distant displays in multiple rooms.  It features 3D projections, immersive room effects, TV studio recreations, and live magicians.

Canadian talent includes: Neil Croswell, Sean Watson, Aaron Matthews (with Caroline Sauve), and Alex Kazam!

Also, involved is Cameron Gibson from the UK.

(We must be missing people ... who else is on board?)


From the Illusionarium website:

This holiday season you and your Magic Circle (of wizards you live with) will explore a labyrinth of mysterious rooms transporting you to different eras of illusion.

Take an immersive journey through the evolution of magic as the world’s most famous illusionists share their deepest secrets…

Using 3D projections, life-like holograms, and live magicians, this is the first time audiences can marvel at the greatest illusions up close – all in a socially-distanced setting.

Conceived by British high-tech magician, Jamie Allan (iMagician), this experiential exhibit blends Jamie’s encyclopedic knowledge on the history of magic with state-of-the-art-technology to bring illusions of the past into the 21st century.

Grab your tickets and I’ll see you at the show folks!!

Aaron Matthews and Rosemary Reid: She Gets Me

Watch the music video for The Washboard Union's "She Gets Me" featuring Aaron Matthews and Rosemary Reid!

(How many Canadian magicians have been in professional music videos?  James Alan was in Summerworks Song, Ray Chance had a cameo in Shawn Desman's video for Stuck and JRDN's video for Like Magic.  And for honourable mention, from The Music Show.  I'm sure there are more though.  Send the deets my way!)
