Teen magic sensations Lucas and Ash (aka ‘Cardistry‘) bring their cheeky humour and extraordinary skills to Sydney Fringe Festival’s kids’ program to leave audience members – of any age – thinking “What the..?”!!
Their show blends the world of ‘cardistry’ (playing card manipulation) with speed-cubing (Rubik’s Cubes) as they challenge the world speed-cubing record, live on stage. Breathtaking, speed magic that will blow your mind!
Lucas Itrawan and Ash Hodgkinson (together “CARDISTRY”) may be just 15 years old but are already seasoned professionals on the Australian entertainment circuit. Starting out busking in Sydney’s Pitt Street mall when they were just 11, they went on to be crowned Australian Junior Magic Champions at the age of 12 and at the ripe old age of 13 starred in their own sell out show at the 2015 Melbourne Magic Festival, being voted “Runner Up Most Popular Show”.
Earlier this year they won the open Comedy and Magic division of Short+Sweet and ABC-TV has picked them for a feature later this year to be screened across the network. In November – together with mentor and famous Australian Magician Adam Mada – they are off to India to perform a series of three theatre shows as guests of the Australian High Commission.
The boys have appeared multiple times on national television including studio10. This all-new show comes direct from fully sold-out run at the Melbourne Magic Festival.
