Now You See Us, shining the spotlight on Women in Magic.
Forget that image of a man in a top hat and tails, there are 3 young women at this years’ Melbourne Magic Festival breaking the stereotypes of magic.
Nicola Gidley (17), Prue Spencer (15) and Lee Cohen (35) are challenging the traditional view that magicians are usually men in this fresh new collaborative work. Now You See Us aims to highlight both the individual skills of its unique cast as well as seeing them work together to present magic that shows they have the skills (and sass!) to rival their male counterparts.
While this collaboration is new, these ladies of magic are no strangers to their chosen art form. Both Prue and Nicola have been 1st place winners at the Australian Junior Championships of Magic and Lee has been performing magic since the age of 8, having enjoyed opportunities to perform and teach in Australia and overseas. With regular workshops at Arts Centre Melbourne she is also the former President of the Australian Institute of Magic.
Witness feats of magic, mysterious moments and even a few surprises as you join Lee, Prue and Nicola at the Melba Spiegeltent at 7:15pm from July 9-13.
