It’s official.

24 Mar

If you love magic, you need to be in Toronto this summer.

For ten extraordinary days in June, Toronto’s stages, streets, and public spaces are illuminated with arts and creativity with Luminato. This annual multi-disciplinary celebration of theatre, literature, music, food, dance, celebrations, visual arts, fashion, film will now feature magic.

The Masters of Magic, brings four of the world’s master magicians to Luminato to highlight one of the world’s oldest performing arts.

Spain’s Juan Tamariz will demonstrate his skillful minimalist and improvisational magic in not one, but three languages! The maestro will performs one show each in Spanish, English, and French.

Charismatic mentalist Max Maven, once described by Orson Welles as “the most original mind in magic,” will display his skill as a master mind reader, while Mac King, a humourist with a magical bent, will use his blend of magic and comedy to enchant viewers of all ages.

Meanwhile, Bob Sheets brings his own brand of manic comic showmanship to the streets of Toronto in a series of free performances.
