Toronto: Asi Wind Jam Session and Hangout!

Hangout and jam with Asi Wind after the Newest Trick in the Book on Tuesday October 22nd!  (And you can catch Asi on Wednesday and Thursday night's The Art of Magic.



From the Asi Wind Jam Session and Hangout! Facebook event:
NYC based Mentalist Asi Wind is one of magic's most influential thinkers and performers. When he isn’t busy creating original magic for magician’s all over the world (including David Blaine) or winning awards (like the Merlin Award for the most original show, previously given to Penn & Teller and David Copperfield), Asi is touring the globe performing his show “Concert of the Mind”, which continues to received rave reviews and critical acclaim.

Asi is coming to Toronto to perform two very special shows with very limited seating happening Wednesday and Thursday night (ticket information for those events can be found here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-art-of-magic-with-headliner-asi-wind-tickets-74567711031?aff=erelexpmlt)...

...this event is NOT those shows.

In fact, this event is not a show at all!

On Tuesday night, right after The Newest Trick in the Book (Canada's only open mic magic show), The Toronto Magic Company and Asi Wind will be hosting a JAM SESSION, open to any magicians that want to participate. We're going to work on tricks, share ideas, and talk about secrets we're not normally allowed discuss. A good jam session is a ton of fun,  and with Asi this is going to be one you do not want to miss!

If you'd like to join your fellow magicians for a night of fun and magic, good news- you're officially invited!  Just click that you're coming on this event page and we'll see you there!

(p.s. if you'd like to come early for the The Newest Trick show happening before the jam, you can get your FREE tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/the-newest-trick-in-the-book-canadas-only-open-mic-magic-show-tickets-67598054601?aff=erelexpmlt)

Ottawa: Sky High Magic Series - Sorcellia with Loran

From Ingenium Canada:
October 14, 2019

The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is proud to present the lineup for this year’s Sky High Magic Series.

Prepare to be captivated by amazing magic and science-based illusions. These talented, high-energy magicians perform unbelievable feats of magic, blended with fast-paced comedy. They’ll tickle your funnybone, while leaving you utterly mystified!

Seating is limited. To avoid disappointment, please reserve your tickets in advance.

Dazzling and highly visual, Sorcellia is a magic show like no other. Inspired by the mysticism of the Middle Ages, Loran's illusions are different from traditional magic shows. Prepare to expect the unexpected!

See a magical cup float through the air before it suddenly disappears. Watch as clocks materialize from nowhere. Enjoy the suspense of the guillotine challenge, along with great illusions featuring theatrical choreography, and even a ghost story with a mysterious portrait.

This mesmerizing performance offers moments of poetry and humour, as well as audience participation. Overcoming language barriers through the universal language of music, Loran helps viewers discover the world of mystery with wit and style.
