As Magique expands throughout Australia, today we introduce to you Adelaides Finest, Magician Vinh Giang.
Vinh is not just a Magician, but a remarkable speaker and motivator who fuses his magic skill with training, teaching and helping you deliver your corporate message. For us it is always hard to find someone who posses both the technical skill magic wise, along with the strong oral presentation skills. So as you can imagine, we where rather excited when we had a chat with Vinh.
Although Magician Vinh Giang is based in Adelaide he does perform throughout Australia, and feel free to contact us today to discuss your Corporate event needs. Lets talk how magic can entertain your guests in a innovative way.
If you are a Magician and think you have what it takes to join Magique feel free to contact ustoday, we would love to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by our blog.
Whilst in China we hope to see the most popular Magician locally, Lu Chen.
Lu Chen has made multiple appearances internationally, performing in Japan, South Korea, Europe, and the United States. His first public appearance in the mainland China was in 2009, during CCTV’s annual Spring Festival, performing a close-range three-part magic show, which included “teleporting” an engagement ring into a real egg. Guests were invited to try basic magic after the show was over. He has been the recipient of many international awards, including the famed “Neil Foster/Bill Baird Award for Excellence in Manipulation”, which is handed out yearly by the Chavez College of Magic.
What a Night ! in the past few years we have seen the event grow rapidly and mostly because of you , the crowd. The effort in costumes and fun vibe is what sets the tone for a friendly fun event that appreciates a combination of performance and upbeat music. It’s not a Stage show, it’s not a Dance Party.. itsBoth!. With thousands of photos taken over the night , and many friends met during the 6 hours its the perfect ice breaker. Magique Magicians roam the floor boggling the minds of those who enter. On stage a cast of 60+ alternate to perform small performances of their unique circus style skill, all to the music you love. Each year we attempt to outdo ourselves and looking back on 2012 edition of our Halloween, we think we have succeeded. Now its time to make 2013 a bar above the last 3 years! …a big task. Believe it or not, we have already started planning, brainstorming, and researching on how to improve Magique Halloween Circus for 2013. Your feedback here is much appreciated as you’re our audience. Our fans are the most important part of the brand. The Team at Magique would like to thank the following people/companies who helped make Magique Halloween Circus 2012 a success:

Thank you for everyone who experienced this years Magique Halloween Circus
so Korean Pop star sensation PSY arrived in Sydney This week and with him, and also Halloween just around the corner we teamed up with Dope Source Media to create a fun, random viral video.
Kien Luu from Dope Source Media shot & edited the Video and myself (James Patrick) came up with the concept. Make up to zombify our actors was supplied by Janet Yong & Estefania who did a great job in such short time provided. The whole video was strung together in 24 hours with the fast release being important.
Magique grabbed the talented Stas on the saxophone and amazing Anh Le AKA DirdyBirdy on the pole to add a different twist to the video. With slight Magique Halloween Circus promotion in the video we didn’t want to make it too much of an ad, but more a fun video that friends would share.
starting at 7am, it took all the way till 4pm to get make up, video and the shots we wanted. All the actors did a Great job getting involved and playing the Zombie roles – whom will be also performing on Halloween both on stage and roaming through the hall.
for those who are yet to see the Viral PSY video/song the video has taken the world by storm and broken records for views and likes across the board with PSY quirky dancing, and unique chessy sound
We are wondering if anyone this Halloween will actually dress up as a Zombified PSY? this will be interesting. If you haven’t got your tickets to our Halloween event at Luna Park yet, you can still get $60 tickets but only for a short time. Check out the event page here:
We did get quite a few strange looks whilst roaming the city, but all in the name of art… right? we want to do this again so if you want to get involved feel free to contact us direct or comment – its all for fun!. See you all at Luna Park this coming Saturday

Why Support Cancer Council?
Emma Rackebrandt, 22 years old (diagnosed at 19)
About three years ago Mum was pushing for me to see a doctor because she sensed something wasn’t right. I’d been putting it off, but deep down also had a feeling that there was something wrong. The doctors found an abnormality in my spine. I was scared and confused.
After the next visit, I was told there was a very large tumour throughout my spinal cord. I had surgery straight away. I was initially in hospital for four weeks and unable to move from the chest down.
From there I was transferred to Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to learn how to live as a paraplegic. I was determined to become skilled enough to drive a modified car, like some other paraplegics, and so I attended physio daily and worked really hard.
A couple of months into rehab I went for another MRI and was told the tumour had spread to my brain. For the best possible outcome, my doctors spoke to experts all over the world about my type of cancer. I was put through intensive radiation. I also began taking chemotherapy pills, which I’m still on today, all the while having regular blood tests, sometimes daily.
Over the past 3 years I have spent over 18months in and out of hospitals for ongoing treatment. During this time we have also held some very successful Australia’s Biggest Morning Teas to support Cancer Council SA, once even while I was in hospital, and we raised a lot of money while having a lot of fun.
I was studying International Tourism at Uni, but have had to take a break. I’m looking forward to returning to study and completing a shorter Event Management course sometime. In the meantime I still work once a week, when I’m well enough, where I get to see my friends. This means a great deal to me and gives me a sense of independence and normality.
In the past, long before I was sick, my mum organised the annual Daffodil Day and Pink Ribbon stands at Flinders University and I volunteered with her while we were both studying there. These fundraising activities are so important as they not only raise much needed cancer research dollars but send a message of hope to people like me across Australia. You never know, one day the life you save through your support could be your own, just like what happened to me”. EmmaRackebrandt
