A team of six from the College of Magic travelled to Las Vegas to share with the world our special brand of African magic. Above: Siphiwe Fangase & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana had Las Vegas alive with the magic of their Laduma 2010 soccer act. Kicking off the excitement was the Lance Burton Teen Weekend - an exclusive gathering just for the teen delegates taking place the weekend before the actual Seminar. College students Nicholas Andrews, Siphiwe Fangase, Michelle Gore & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana joined a select group of young magicians from across the globe ... receiving in-depth instruction from such luminaries as Jeff McBride, Max Maven, Eugene Burger & Mac King. The weekend culminated in a one-of-a-kind luncheon for the students at Lance Burton’s castle that attracted the who’s who of magic including Banachek, Johnny Thompson as well as Criss Angel. The undeniable highlight of the World Magic Seminar is always the International Teen Contest. Course 5 student, Nicholas Andrews, performed an emotion filled act to the haunting strains of Billy Elliot’s Electricity. Nicholas’ poignant portrayal of a child discovering the memories of his late grandfather combined with a dazzling display of skill, left many in the audience with a tear in their eye. Siphiwe Fangase & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana brought, too, their own personalities to the stage in an action packed, comic marathon of a soccer act featuring a new twist to the much loved sawing in half illusion. With an end flourish of gigantic soccer balls cascading into the audience, no one could help but be swept away with 2010 soccer fever. So unique was the act, that the duo performers brought home to South Africa the coveted SARMOTI Legacy Award for Creativity & Originality. A stunning triumph indeed!

Not to be missed. 5 T Joshua Jay he College of Magic is fortunate to be welcoming another superstar of magic to South Africa - Joshua Jay! Joshua Jay is one of the best of his generation. Michael Ammar claims: “Josh Jay rocks.” Greg Wilson calls him “The anti-Criss Angel.” Named International Magician of the Year - Josh is unlike any performer you’ve come across. 66 Joshua Jay is truly a phenomenon in magic - MAGIC Magazine’s most celebrated columnist for the last seven years, author of numerous best-selling trade books (the first published in five languages), star of DVDs, Champion at the World Magic Seminar, featured on ABC, CBS & CNN, TV appearances in no less than eight countries - the list goes on and on ... But for many in the magic community, Joshua Jay’s most interesting performance venue is his time spent with other magicians. Over the past three years, this true professional has toured FIFTYFOUR countries, allowing him to hone his art into one of the most mind-blowing sessions of its kind. And now it’s South Africa’s turn! Taking place at the College of Magic on the 16 & 17th May, students will spend the weekend in the company of one of the world’s best instructors of magic. Josh will teach his most closely guarded routines & share secrets behind some of the most jaw dropping magic imaginable. Marvel at the genius behind his greatest creations. Discuss the mechanics behind the technique, jam the day away, see a classic of magic rediscovered and learn some of the most unbelievable magic ever ... and that’s only the beginning ! “I always tell people I didn’t find magic. Magic found me.” you’ve never seen here. Joshua lectures on bonus routines that he has never tipped before, and shares unique insights into performing and creating. “Good magic hides the trick,” he says. “Great magic reveals some sort of truth. It’s a form of self-expression. I want my magic to be meaningful. I want people to find more in it than deception. People should enjoy it, of course, but they should also feel connected to others through it and to reconsider what they think they know and the way they perceive things.” Joshua does plenty of things that will make you reconsider what you think you know. His main performance style is close-up. Coins, ropes, even a television remote—vanishing, stretching, and defying expectations in countless other ways. But his passion is cards. (“I’m up to two packs a day,” he says.) Not your uncle’s card tricks, mind you. These are headturning, jaw-dropping pieces of perfection that have garnered Joshua international renown as a magician extraordinaire. Joshua’s magic is up-close and personal— simple, clear and undeniable. It happens when you’re watching, no matter how close you’re watching. The secret is right in front of you. And the secret is Joshua. You’ll learn not only powerful, roadtested magic, but more importantly, you’ll discover how to elevate your magic from the mundane to the miraculous. Whether your interests run to cards, coins, closeup, parlour, stage, mentalism or walk around - whether you are just a beginner or a superstar in the making - Joshua Jay will simply MAKE YOUR MAGIC BETTER! If you have never seen Joshua live, he is unlike any performer you have ever seen: interactive, fast-paced, contemporary and packed with the most diabolical magic you will use. If you have seen Joshua lecture before, there is STILL tons of content Don’t miss out ... Joshua Jay - Live in South Africa Sat. 16 & Sun. 17th May 2009 College of Magic www.secretsessions.co.za Live in South Africa Secret Session 16 & 17 May 7 Showbiz Show biz Mania As the Cape Town winter welcomed a wet crowd to the Annual Children’s Magic Festival, they were suitably warmed by the fare on offer – and in a brand new venue, the College’s Imagination Centre, featuring its first major event … loads of fun was had by all – both visiting little ones, and their young-at-heart escorts, and the enthusiastic and creative cast of College students and ‘guest graduates’ Matthew Gore, Craig Mitchell, Marcel Pretorius and Ryan Sharp. Whoops of joy and screams of laughter filled the air. Juggling, circus, teach-a-trick, stage shenanigans, young close-up stars, sweet treats and colourful clowns were the order of the day – for the week… This culminated in a great show and teach-in by visiting American magician, Bill Herz, and family, who also provided a delicious pizza dinner for top student College supporters – certainly a week to remember! Our very own sleight-of-hand maestro, Stuart Lightbody, went public with his Professional Show ‘52’ which played at the Kalk Bay Theatre. In the lovely, intimate setting Stuart kept his audiences mesmerised with not only his skilful sleights and amazing card control, but also with his dreamy story-telling ability – a show not to be missed! Another Pro Show hitting the circuit was Aidan’s Bryan Miles’ ‘Theatre of the Mind’ at the Intimate Theatre in Cape Town. Intriguing, amusing, puzzling, mind-boggling – what a wonderful display of a magical technique with a difference – if you get a chance to see his show – go! Stars of Comedy & Magic is a not to be missed event on the magic calendar. Past stars included Riaad Moosa, Monica Nyakatya, Ryan Sharp & Erika Swart of The Mystiques, Stuart Taylor, Bryan Miles and Tanya Nefdt of ETV fame. 8 It was Festival Time in Grahamstown and Chad Findlay (giving his glorious voice a break from hectic rehearsals for Artscape’s My Fair Lady) and Lance Job braved the Eastern Cape temperatures, taking the talented team of Mawonga Gayiya, Alex Gregory and Monica Nyakatya to warm the hearts of patrons with their awardwinning acts. Back home, young College entertainers kept the art alive by participating in the Annual Close-up and Stage Contests, strutting their stuff and showing their skills – with excited students thrilled as they claimed top honours in their respective categories – well done guys, and keep up the inspiration! Gracing the stage at Artscape Theatre was the incredible Stars of Comedy and Magic Show. This popular medley of mirth and magic was once again sold out and showcased South Africa’s funny man Riaad Moosa as MC and our own hilarious ‘Learner Husband’ Stuart Taylor showing the roots, or is it routes, of his magic career, the renowned ventriloquial comic Conrad Koch with his lively, and cheeky, puppets, the enigmatic Bryan Miles, who played mysterious mind games with the masses, and Ryan Sharp’s amazing Mystique of Illusions. There was quite a buzz surrounding Ryan’s instant onstage vanish of lovely Cape Town celebrity, Tanya Nefdt… and yes, she did come back again – some time later.. Darling – Scene of the renowned Voorkamer Festival – saw the College branching out as Stuart Lightbody took his awesome sleights to the country. Stuart and his team performed in a small home on the outskirts of Darling, where the Voorkamer had a pillar dividing the sight lines. It was amusing to watch as the eager audience resembled spectators at a tennis match as eyes darted rapidly from side to side so as not to miss any of the magical miracles. Mawonga Gayiya charmed with his slick golfing ball magic and Monica Nyakatya had everyone gasping as her table floated majestically. Magic was the name of the game and entertaining performances was their aim - as the year sped by with the Salesian Youth featuring in their own Magic DVD Shows, a College team stunning the delegates at the World Economic Forum Africa Summit, Matthew Ross flying off to Canada for the Sorcerers’ Safari and Phumile Dyasi and company as the official opening spot at the Early Childhood Development Conference. Roll on the rest of 2009 – the sky’s the limit! - Marian Williamson 8 Photos: Pete Biro, S&R North American Fan Club 2 008 – one of the College of Magic’s busiest years to date – a year of exciting shows – keeping Cape Town thoroughly entertained! banachek A giant amongst magicians ... Banachek returned ‘home’ to South Africa after 30 years of absence for a special journey to rediscover those childhood haunts never forgotten. T here are two types of magicians in this world ... those who know Banachek and those who haven’t had the privilege of meeting this giant amongst magicians. His background story reads like an action thriller, his ideas on magic revolutionary and his contribution to the art unparalleled. And despite this all, Banachek is unaffected ... quite simply one of the most disarmingly sincere people you will ever come across. Having not been back to South Africa since 1976, Banachek’s ‘homecoming’ was a special journey - not just for those fortunate enough to spend the weekend in his company at the College of Magic - but for himself personally as well. Banachek truly opened his heart to those assembled - magicians, graduates, students & friends from across the country were treated to an inside look in the mind of one of magic’s greatest. Open and honest, no holds barred - this was Banachek giving of his all. And give he did. Playing to a packed audience at the Baxter Theatre, he mystified, amazed, and entertained leaving no doubt in anyone’s mind that Cape Town had been in the presence of someone exceptional. Some visitors come & go - but Banachek and Heidi share a special place in all our hearts. Let’s hope that it’s not long before they come ‘home’ again. There are two types of magicians in this world ... those who know Heidi and those who haven’t had the privilege of meeting this giant amongst magicians ... but that is a another whole story ;-) - Craig Mitchell Top: Banachek lectured to a capacity audience at the College of Magic and followed this with a sold out performance of his stage show at the Baxter Theatre.

Thank you to you all! The 2009 Course One classes were quick to explore their magical new ‘home’ with teachers Hayley Tomes and Phumile Dyasi waving the wand. High school students found themselves in the illustrious “Magic & Showmanship” Course with magical direction by David Gore, Lance Job and Aidan Knott. Many are unaware that the College’s teaching staff are purely voluntary - and drawn nearly exclusively from our graduate body who freely give of their time to give back to the art. The new-look 2009 teaching staff comprises graduates from last year’s staff training programme. Andrew Klazinga is helping make technical magic in the Theatre Production department, Tim Gore is bringing his close-up skills into Course 3 while Adri du Toit is injecting new vigour into the senior stage magic training. In the library you will find two new faces – Lawrence Jaeger has taken the role of librarian with Neil Mackay recently joining him to help promote, develop and safeguard this important resource. Tim Gore and Matthieu Snaith will be found helping develop diabolo and stilt-walking in the juggling department. With just over 170 students enrolled this year at the College of Magic, 2009 is proving to be one of the most exciting years yet. The College has undergone an amazing transformation thanks to the completion of Phase One of the Imagination Centre - our fantastic new multi-purpose addition to the building. Ask any staff member and the response is the same - “how did we ever manage without it ?” Phase Two will see further development of the interior, verandah, Secret Garden and surrounds.
