Celtic Illusion combines a fusion of contemporary Irish dance and music with grand scale illusions, thus making it a unique performance concept that sets it apart from all other dance shows.
From the very second the lights go down the audience embarks on an adventure where anything is possible and the world of dreams becomes reality. You will be instantly captivated with the first magical appearance of the lead dancer surrounded by the cast on a raised platform. This feat sets the tone for the rest of the show – you should expect surprises at every twist and turn.
The stage comes alive as champion dancers effortlessly grace the stage, moving as one, creating thunderous rhythms that will leave you unable to sit still!
Each routine in Celtic Illusion has an individually stylised look and feel which is complimented by a bold, lush and modern musical score arranged and composed by Angela Little (Baz Luhrmanns ‘Australia’). Anthony demonstrates his belief in the music being the heart and soul of each routine by staying true to the Irish genre but also pushing the boundaries giving the score an energetic and contemporary Celtic feel. “It was important that I chose the right composer for this show. I believe it’s the music that takes the choreography to a more complete artistic level. Having Angela compose the music was the best move I made in making this show. Angela instinctively and creatively knew exactly what I had in my mind and I couldn’t be happier.”
Celtic Illusion is constantly evolving and growing. Some fans have already seen the show several times and were amazed and excited at how much it had changed in the space of a few months.
Celtic Illusion is staged in such a way that it has endless potential. New illusions are constantly being added to the show and new routines are being choreographed or modified. Celtic Illusion is an explosive creative force that is simply unstoppable and is growing to be one of the biggest dance shows in the world!
