The Melbourne Magic Festival attracts performers with all kinds of skills – mostly magical of course, but also circus and variety talents too! One such performer is Chris Morant who proudly presents “Chris Morant’s Magical Circus Show” during this year’s festival.

Describe your show in 3 words: Magical, Circus, Fun.

What do you enjoy most about entertaining children / families?
I enjoy performing for children and families because I feel it includes everyone and the focus is on being entertaining and it makes me so happy and fulfilled to see people laughing and clapping.

I hear you perform many circus and magic skills – is there any skill you’re particularly proud of?
My favourite trick is my hat juggling, as when you are wearing a hat people think its part of the costume so it is a surprise the see the hat being rolled, thrown and tumbled.

Without giving too much away, what can audiences expect from your show?
Audiences can expect a fun engaging show for the whole family, I also give away a beautiful hand made leather cat mask to one lucky audience member each show. I love the idea that my show will have a very special magical effect on the winner of the mask to have a story about the show and have a really col mask to have for masquerade balls and even as wall art. I also will be selling masks after the show.

What does the Melbourne Magic Festival mean to you? Is there anything you’re looking forward to at festival time?
The Magic Festival means a lot to me to feel like I am part of a community, and I love seeing the next generation of artists putting their spin on classic magical effects.

Sounds like an amazing show indeed, PLUS it comes with a bonus chance to win your very own special hand made leather cat mask – that is very cool indeed.

Chris Morant’s Magical Circus show runs from July 5th to 9th at The Slydini Showroom – Arrow Hub. Get tickets for your whole family here.
