Magic - sleight of hand, animal magic, money magic

Master mystifier Elio Simonetti and his dazzling helper Eva Salleh are back with a new show and workshop developed to ignite children’s imaginations. For forty five minutes, students are taken on an exciting journey through the mysterious art of magic.

The fun begins with an action packed show. Live animals appear out of thin air, coins are found invisibly lingering amongst the spectators, and destroyed objects curiously mend themselves!

Elio and Eva pull back the curtain to the elusive world of conjuring. They reveal the modus operandi of some simple but astonishing magic that students can perform to amaze their family and friends. All the tricks can be done with articles that can be readily found around the home.

* A maximum of roughly 250 students per show is recommended. This way, everybody gets the most out of the show and workshop.

“Very interesting, very expressive, very intriguing and very clever. Had us all amazed. The best magic show I have ever seen!”
- St Mary's Echuca

“Most impressed by a superior performance. Elio and Eva presented an outstanding show. All the children were totally absorbed.”
- Auburn Primary School

“The children were captivated, enthralled and involved as they enjoyed the variations in the mime and magic. The written material that the children generated as a result of their shared experience was extraordinary. I can certainly recommend this presentation as being entirely suited to captivating primary school children of all ages.”
- Dandenong North Primary School

Elio Simonetti is the only Australian magician to have been invited to perform for the British Monarchy, European Presidents and Australian Heads of State.

Eva Salleh began her career on stage at the tender age of five, with appearances in a series of televised children’s programmes.

Together, they have amazed audiences in over a dozen countries throughout Europe and Asia, and have thrilled children in schools and libraries across Australia for Regional Arts Victoria and The Victorian Arts Centre.
