Circus of Illusion
M2 Productions in association with Circus Royale presents "Circus of Illusion" running at Bonython Park from October 2nd - 23rd. Circus of Illusion is a fun cocktail of world-class performers from across the globe including aerial artists, jugglers, mimes, magicians and illusionists.

New York ringmaster Ebon Greyman keeps guests entertained with his juggling and balance routine, while the aerial artist wowed the crowd from above with her stunning silk acrobatic routine.

Nationally acclaimed illusionist, Michael Boyd, never leaves the crowd disappointed. This illusion leave you wondering how it is even possible. One audience member is asked to hold a bucket while Boyd places his duck, Thurston, in a box on the stage. Somehow the box on the stage is empty and Thurston has re-appeared in the bucket.

When guests return from the half-time break they notice a box hanging above the stage. Boyd throws a beach ball into the audience asking three random children to pick a sport, a city and a famous celebrity. The answers chosen were Netball, Adelaide and Justin Bieber, Boyd then proceeds to tell the audience about his dream from the night before while reading the note locked in the box above the stage, it said 'I was playing Netball in Adelaide with Justin Bieber', the crowd cheered and again was left wondering how is this even possible.

Next he lays his assistant on a table and puts her to sleep. She begins levitating into the air and Boyd runs a hula hoop over her body to show there are no strings attached. He then propels himself straight up into the air. He also showed a child from the audience how to do magic on his uncle's magic table, when suddenly, to the music of Harry Potter, the table levitates into the air. He shows the audience again that its just an average table with no ropes, fan or anything else making it happen.

Circus of Illusion
Spanish visual comic Duban Nickol stole the show with his comedy routine performing Gangnam Style on a trampoline, taking off Prince singing You Don't have to Be Rich and quoting James Bond. His striptease trampoline act is like nothing seen before. He flips back and forward on his head removing several vests and it was 'Fantastical' to watch.

Stephan Le Forestier presented an amazing French mime and sculpture routine, taking off a statue in a park coming to life and a mime on a bridge. These acts were beautiful to watch and had the crowd cheering.

The Circus of Illusion is incredible, mind-blowing entertainment for the whole family. Don't miss your chance to see this show this October at Bonython Park.
