Singapore Celebrity Magicians to Add Magic to Old Victorian Association Concert at the Esplanade
Singapore’s premier illusionists, J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ Ning, will be a highlight act at a gala concert organized by the Old Victorian Association for Victoria School and Victoria Junior College.
Entitled “Nil Sine Labore”, the Victorian motto that means “Nothing without Labour”, the concert celebrates the musical and artistic achievements of Victorians over the years. J C Sum is an alumnus of both Victoria School and Victoria Junior College and is Singapore’s most prominent illusionist.
The one-night only concert will be held at The Esplanade Concert Hall on 6 June 2009, Sat, at 7.30pm and is directed by Cultural Medallion Winner, Iskandar Ismail.
J C Sum & ’Magic Babe’ Ning, known for their distinct style of ’urban illusions in the city’, are the country’s top professional illusionists. What sets this pair apart from other professional illusion teams in this part of the world is the equal partnership between the two. ’Magic Babe’ Ning is no assistant, but holds her own with her unique brand of deadly sexy magic.
The magic duo will debut a brand new illusion entitled “360 Sawing”. In this one-of-a-kind illusion, ‘Magic Babe’ will be divided in half and then the top half of her body will be vertically rotated around her bottom half. It has to be seen to be believed! The cutting edge illusion is the latest in their signature brand of “urban illusions in the city”.
J C Sum who adapted and redesigned the illusion from another prop says: “This original design and presentation of a traditional illusion effect has never been seen before in this part of the world. While other magicians have been cut in half before, no one else has included a 360 degree rotation of both halves of the body at the same time. It is fitting we debut such an innovation in magic at the OVA (Old Victorian Association) Gala Concert at the Esplanade.”
The concert is open to the public and tickets are available at http://nsl.ova.org.sg for $25 only, to commemorate Victoria Junior College’s 25th anniversary this year.
