A magic show with a huge twist
The 2018 Melbourne Magic Festival is on from 2nd to 14th July, 2018 is not to be missed!

This festival is now officially the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and attracts magicians and magic fans from all over the country and even further. One of the shows at the festival is Magic in the Dark.

Magic in the Dark will be on at The Dark, 35 Johnston Street, Collingwood, on Tuesday 3rd July, 2018 till Saturday 7th July 2018. Each show will start at 7:15 pm and goes until 8:45 pm.

Magic In the Dark is the only magic show worldwide that takes place in absolute darkness. It was a show conceived for people who are unable to see, as well as for sighted people including adults and those over 8 years old.

In this show, everyone can be a part of a unique and amazing experience. While there is a distinct prevalence of visual stimulus in most of the shows, Magic In the Dark gets the public to understand the possibility to be astounded and live magic without using their sight. This will enable you to participate in an experience that allows you to activate the "intellect, fantasy and emotion".

Its creator is Juan Esteban Varela and Juan is also blindfolded during the show.

Juan believes the following:
As long as a person has the ability to imagine, it is possible to stimulate his/her fantasy with fiction.
As long as a person has the ability to reason things out, it is possible to intervene with his/her interpretation process and create a mystery.
As long as a person has the ability to be moved by things, it is possible to turn a magical effect into a personal experience.
Sight, as any other sense, is only a "means". The final reason for magic is the excitement and amazement.

About Juan Esteban Varela
Juan has performed magic since he was six year of age. He believes that the biggest illusion is the one of our limits. Therefore magic is able to remind us that anything is possible.

After finishing his law studies in Pontificia Universidad Catolica, Juan Esteban Varela moved to Spain and devoted his life to seeking to learn all about magic.

He was voted Magician of the Year in his home country of Chile, and has invented a lot of different magic shows, though Magic In the Dark is his most famous!

He has performed it in Spain where the King of Spain's sister said "Thank you for creating this show. For the first time, I understood the meaning of a disappearance."

In Las Vegas, acclaimed magician Steve Varro said Magic in the Dark "truly was an amazing event that every sighted person should experience."

Juan is looking forward to bringing this show to Australia for the very first time and is especially proud to be partnering in this venture with Vision Australia.
