Finalists in a competition: The Strangers

Last weekend, our trio of magicians at Meta Illusions, The Strangers, competed in a talent competition hosted by both Bukit Timah Plaza and Noon Talk Media – they have emerged victorious among numerous other competitors having acquired third in the overall contest.

The Strangers – Yu Ji, Kim and Anderson – put in blood, sweat and tears to create a new, never before seen illusions specially designed for this competition. The illusion – to vanish a judge’s phone and allow it to reappear inside a box, a box that has been hung up on stage and secured under lock and key. The road to the illusion’s inception was not an easy one; weeks were spent conceptualising and perfecting the illusion under the guidance of Singapore’s top iPad illusionist, Alexander Yuen. Yet despite the gruelling practice as well as the audience’s scrutiny and scepticism, not only has The Strangers managed to complete and perform their illusion, they have managed to deliver their top class performance with class, swag and humour, much to the delight and amazement of the audience and the judges.

The most interesting part of it all is that The Strangers is the ONLY contestant performing magic within the competition to have emerged victorious. Numerous other magicians were either eliminated through the constant bouts of attrition amongst contestants. This is a true testament to The Stranger’s performance; they are ranked as the best magic act within this competition.

Although The Strangers did not rank first, their charisma and magic have won the hearts of the judges and the audience. One particular lady was so impressed with their performance that she took the initiative to commend them for their magic! What a heart-warming sight!

We hope that you had had a great weekend as well! Till next time.

A Magical Birthday Surprise

Last month, I had a wonderful opportunity to use my skills and talents as a magician to bring joy and wonder to a very special group of people. A client contacted Meta Illusions to provide world class magic for her husband, of whom, will be celebrating his 60th birthday down at Mount Faber’s very own ballroom. She has decided that magic will be a wonderful addition to the birthday party; one that will surely bring about wonderful and unforgettable memories both to the couple, as well as the honored guests at the party.

I glad accepted this challenge and prepped myself for the joyous evening. The guests were all wonderful. You can literally see their eyes sparkle with excitement and anticipation when they hear that a magician will be performing for the evening. I pulled out my bag of tricks and brought much visual, stunning entertainment for all of them. Their reactions were amazing. Many of them appreciated what I did and even requested for selfies during and after the show.

Towards the end of the evening, I was also asked to do something special for the birthday boy on stage. What better way of ending the show by making him the star of the show. The magic was designed in such a way where the birthday boy was the magician and I was the spectator. The unique and surprising reversal of roles, coupled with comedic punch lines made the moment of stage truly magical for him and everyone else!!!

I realized that the real magic is the bond one has with another person. An intimate connection on a spiritual level. Only through magic can we attain such a wonderful connection; and only then can we really create unforgettable memories!

It’s all done with Smoke and Mirrors

On the very last day of 2017, our close-up magician, Anderson, got the incredible opportunity to share his love, passion in the Art of Magic to audience down at Smoke and Mirrors Bar – located right at the very of top of Singapore’s very own National Gallery.

The weather was gloomy, hazy and wet; amidst wet tuxedoes and pompadours, an evening of wonder and magic awaits! Warm lights and jazz flooded the bar as Anderson waltzed in between tables with his arsenal of miracles. Despite being strangers, the magic instantly brought huge bouts of joy and laughter to the tables. Within an instant, strangers from separate corners of the world became friends over wine and champagne. Transcending sleight of hand and trickery, the real magic conjures itself, reifies itself in between individuals with a single smile.

What better way to end of a fantastic year with close-up magic.

Here we see how effective close-up magic is as an ice-breaker and entertainment for all age groups and races.

There was also a request by a member of the audience to demonstrate something amazing with the bar’s own cutlery. Without a moment’s hesitation, Anderson led the group down the rabbit hole and into a dimension of wizardry by altering the molecules of a metal spoon, thus causing it to bend at the will of the spectator. The ad lib request of doing magic with ordinary objects is what makes it fun, entertaining and memorable. The reactions from the audience was incredible and well-worth a shot. It is our mission to provide impactful and visual magic for everyone according to their needs and desire.
