Postby Stevegore » Thu Nov 10, 2016 10:25 pm



It is with huge excitement that the South Tyneside International Magic Festival can announce the first batch of Star lecturers and performers at our convention next year. All these guys appeared in the documentary 'Our Magic' created and filmed by R. Paul Wilson, which will be shown at the convention.

Rob Zabrecky From Los Angeles
As a magician there is simply no one like him. In live performances he invents a magical World through a series of strange and beautiful effects, which combines with remarkable timing and theatrical edifice.
He has become a prime attraction at the Magic Castle. There he has received multiple award nominations by the Academy of Magical Arts.

Mahdi Gilbert from New York
A Canadian professional sleight of hand card magician, he has created every technique he uses due to being born without hands and feet. Because all instructional material on magic has been created for people with hands Mahdi has had to invent techniques for every trick he performs.
Mahdi has appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us Season three where his was successful in fooling Penn Jillette and Teller with a version of the card effect 'Oil and Water'. He also contributed to the research of the book The Greatest German Living by Ricky Jay about Matthias Buchinger who was also born without hands or feet.

Asi Wind From New York
This NYC based Corporate Mentalist is one of magic's most influential thinkers and performers. Magicians all over the world study and perform his creations. Recently he was presented with the Merlin Award for the most original show (previously given to Penn & Teller and David Copperfield).
Asi's recent off-Broadway show, “Concert of the Mind,” completely sold out, extended its run, and received rave reviews and critical acclaim.
His new show " Do You Want To Change Your Mind?" is due to premier in London on Nov 8th 2016.

Michael Murray , Lecture
At the age of seven Michael traveled to Spain on holiday with his parents, and it was there that he witnessed close up magic for the very first time; this was an event that would change the entire course of his life. At the age of sixteen Michael released his first commercial effect “Beyond ESP” which to date has sold in excess of fifteen thousand copies. Having attracted the attention of several world class performers including Max Maven, Richard Osterlind and Banachek he quickly established himself amongst his peers. In 2016 Michael released his first book “A Piece of My Mind” which was crowned book of the year (as voted by the members of the magic cafe) and was also listed as one of the top ten mentalism releases of the year at the “Market Place of the Mind”. Michael is widely regarded as one of the most respected creators of both magic and mentalism and with countless releases in the pipeline his future looks very bright.
