AARON SMYTH: A LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS @ The Red Room at Creatures Next Door | Fremantle | Western Australia | Australia
For centuries the Tarot has been clouded in mystery and misconceptions. In reality Tarot is nothing more than a creator of content, a tool to develop self reflection, a picture book that can help bring subconscious thought forward. Tarot is a tool that can allow focus and direction. This show is not about predicting futures and giving you answers, this show is about realising you already have all the answers. A Light in the Shadows is created to help bring an understanding to this mysterious subject. The history, symbolism, and divination of Tarot will be uncovered, and together we will take a journey using intuition, interpretation and connection, to help clarify and enlighten situations that can arise within us all. Discover your light and free yourself from your own personal shadows. Presented by: Aaron Smyth I first became aware of Tarot as a young boy. At 10 I would go to my friend’s house and together we would spend hours playing cards, unknowingly using the Tarot for our games instead of regular playing cards. At this age I knew that they were different, although we were told it was because they came from yugoslavia, but they felt special in a way. I loved the images that were on them, the names and the colours. It wasn’t until many years later that a girl I adored, my now wife, gave me my first Tarot reading. This is the time I became interested in the actual practice of interpreting Tarot. I was amazed at how something so simplistic could offer so much towards personal reflection. Tarot is a personal experience, but it is an experience that I enjoy sharing with others.

An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory. Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own. “I’ve never heard of you!” – David Copperfield. Presented by: Robbie T Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a “day job”. In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth’s busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children’s parties! The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of “Most Creative” after winning local competitions. While he has performed in many previous Fringe festivals, this production represents his first full length solo performance. It features a lot of challenging new material, which he is excited to debut at Fringe. His website can be found here: www.RobbieT.com.au

During this hilarious hour, Robbie will share genuine diary entries and photographs from his tortured childhood, along with insights into his first ever crush, his macabre fascinations, and so much more. An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory. Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own. “I’ve never heard of you!” – David Copperfield. Presented by: Robbie T Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a “day job”. In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth’s busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children’s parties! The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of “Most Creative” after winning local competitions.

One man’s transformative journey, from socially awkward to utterly inept. Yes, Robbie is a magician. And despite what you see on TV, magicians are generally uncool. Robbie is no exception. During this hilarious hour, Robbie will share genuine diary entries and photographs from his tortured childhood, along with insights into his first ever crush, his macabre fascinations, and so much more. An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory. Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own. “I’ve never heard of you!” – David Copperfield. Presented by: Robbie T Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a “day job”. In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth’s busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children’s parties! The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of “Most Creative” after winning local competitions. While he has performed in many previous Fringe festivals, this production represents his first full length solo performance. It features a lot of challenging new material, which he is excited to debut at Fringe. His website can be found here: www.RobbieT.com.au

AARON SMYTH: A LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS @ The Red Room at Creatures Next Door | Fremantle | Western Australia | Australia
For centuries the Tarot has been clouded in mystery and misconceptions. In reality Tarot is nothing more than a creator of content, a tool to develop self reflection, a picture book that can help bring subconscious thought forward. Tarot is a tool that can allow focus and direction. This show is not about predicting futures and giving you answers, this show is about realising you already have all the answers. A Light in the Shadows is created to help bring an understanding to this mysterious subject. The history, symbolism, and divination of Tarot will be uncovered, and together we will take a journey using intuition, interpretation and connection, to help clarify and enlighten situations that can arise within us all. Discover your light and free yourself from your own personal shadows. Presented by: Aaron Smyth I first became aware of Tarot as a young boy. At 10 I would go to my friend’s house and together we would spend hours playing cards, unknowingly using the Tarot for our games instead of regular playing cards. At this age I knew that they were different, although we were told it was because they came from yugoslavia, but they felt special in a way. I loved the images that were on them, the names and the colours. It wasn’t until many years later that a girl I adored, my now wife, gave me my first Tarot reading. This is the time I became interested in the actual practice of interpreting Tarot. I was amazed at how something so simplistic could offer so much towards personal reflection. Tarot is a personal experience, but it is an experience that I enjoy sharing with others.

During this hilarious hour, Robbie will share genuine diary entries and photographs from his tortured childhood, along with insights into his first ever crush, his macabre fascinations, and so much more. An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory. Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own. “I’ve never heard of you!” – David Copperfield. Presented by: Robbie T Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a “day job”. In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth’s busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children’s parties! The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of “Most Creative” after winning local competitions. While he has performed in many previous Fringe festivals, this production represents his first full length solo performance. It features a lot of challenging new material, which he is excited to debut at Fringe. His website can be found here: www.RobbieT.com.au

One man’s transformative journey, from socially awkward to utterly inept. Yes, Robbie is a magician. And despite what you see on TV, magicians are generally uncool. Robbie is no exception. During this hilarious hour, Robbie will share genuine diary entries and photographs from his tortured childhood, along with insights into his first ever crush, his macabre fascinations, and so much more. An engaging and interactive show, full of wonder and attempts at humour, with audience participation being mandatory. Awkwardly elegant, and elegantly awkward, Robbie is prone to over sharing. Through his unique blend of interactive theatre, magic, and storytelling, he reveals his inner weirdo, and encourages you to embrace your own. “I’ve never heard of you!” – David Copperfield. Presented by: Robbie T Ten years ago, Robbie began performing as a magician and getting paid! He performed most weekends while also working a “day job”. In December 2011, he quit his day job, and has since made a good living as one of Perth’s busiest professional magicians. Every week, he performs both on-stage and close-up, at weddings, birthdays, corporate events, festivals, and more. And no, he DOES NOT do children’s parties! The WA Society of Magicians has twice awarded Robbie the title of “Most Creative” after winning local competitions. While he has performed in many previous Fringe festivals, this production represents his first full length solo performance. It features a lot of challenging new material, which he is excited to debut at Fringe. His website can be found here: www.RobbieT.com.au

AARON SMYTH: A LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS @ The Red Room at Creatures Next Door | Fremantle | Western Australia | Australia
For centuries the Tarot has been clouded in mystery and misconceptions. In reality Tarot is nothing more than a creator of content, a tool to develop self reflection, a picture book that can help bring subconscious thought forward. Tarot is a tool that can allow focus and direction. This show is not about predicting futures and giving you answers, this show is about realising you already have all the answers. A Light in the Shadows is created to help bring an understanding to this mysterious subject. The history, symbolism, and divination of Tarot will be uncovered, and together we will take a journey using intuition, interpretation and connection, to help clarify and enlighten situations that can arise within us all. Discover your light and free yourself from your own personal shadows. Presented by: Aaron Smyth I first became aware of Tarot as a young boy. At 10 I would go to my friend’s house and together we would spend hours playing cards, unknowingly using the Tarot for our games instead of regular playing cards. At this age I knew that they were different, although we were told it was because they came from yugoslavia, but they felt special in a way. I loved the images that were on them, the names and the colours. It wasn’t until many years later that a girl I adored, my now wife, gave me my first Tarot reading. This is the time I became interested in the actual practice of interpreting Tarot. I was amazed at how something so simplistic could offer so much towards personal reflection. Tarot is a personal experience, but it is an experience that I enjoy sharing with others.
