Breakdancing magician and finalist of Britain’s Got Talent 2020, Magical Bones has taken his new magic show Black Magic back on the road, following an impressive sold-out run at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. This tour encompasses some rescheduled dates from his 2020 tour along with the new shows.
Black Magic challenges the connotations usually associated with this term and the show culminates with a tribute to the Black Magician Henry Box Brown, a 19th century slave from Virginia who escaped to freedom at the age of 33 in 1849 by arranging to have himself shipped inside a wooden crate to abolitionists in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bones is a unique performer, so expect to be taken on an awe-inspiring journey that includes the coolest breakdance moves, back-flipping card tricks and of course jaw-dropping street magic.
Magical Bones started his career as a professional hip-hop dancer and was given the nickname ‘Bones’ because of his hard-hitting dance style. He went on to establish himself as one of the most respected figures within the UK hip-hop scene, working with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Madonna, Alicia Keys and PlanB, and is the featured dancer in the music video for Mint Royale’s number 1 smash hit single, Singin’ In the Rain.
Combining his dance skills with his magic talent is now the focus of his time, and he has since gone on to make it to the finals of 2020’s Britain’s Got Talent, star in the Impossible magic show tour and in London’s West End, feature in Sky’s TV series Around The World in 80 Tricks, appear on the CW’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us in the USA, Crackerjack on CBBC and ITV’s This Morning. He also closed BBC One’s coverage of the BAFTA Awards ceremony.
Magic Bones will be performing at The Core tomorrow (Saturday, April, 23), before moving on to the South Mill Arts Centre, in Bishops Stortford, on Thursday, April 28.
