Your host is Scott Silven: mentalist and raconteur of impeccable taste. As a meticulous and mouthwatering array of extravagances from the award winning culinary team at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins arrive at your table, Silven concocts a banquet of more otherworldly wonders that will delight and astound in equal measure. This is the event that has floored jaws around the world, turning even the most iron-clad sceptics into ardent admirers in the course of one decadent evening. As with previous Festival works The Echo of the Shadow (2016) and Taylor Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2017) this is once-in-a-lifetime stuff, and we can’t help but smile knowing what’s in store for Melbourne.

Wonders @ The Famous Spiegeltent
Scott Silven isn’t just one of the world’s finest mentalists and illusionists—he’s the rare sort of master who elevates his craft to the highest level of art. With Wonders Silven takes his audience on an intimate walk through the corridors of the mind, furnished by their own memories and lit by his keen and surprising insights. From stage and screen across the globe, Silven has accrued a reputation as one of the smartest and most stylish young proponents of his mysterious profession. Now he comes to Melbourne to transform our grand old Spiegeltent into a site for impossible acts of mind reading and uncanny prediction. His audience might be composed of strangers, but in Silven’s hands the invisible connections that bind us are made tangible, and secrets rise to the surface in the most unexpected ways. His feats might be the result of misdirection or psychology, but there’s a very real artistry that cuts beyond illusion to strike at the profoundest reaches of the human condition: telling us something about ourselves that isn’t easily put into words. The philosopher Descartes dubbed wonder the first of the passions, since all other desires stem from the hunger that wonder provokes. Prepare to supercharge your senses and set your mind alight.

Your host is Scott Silven: mentalist and raconteur of impeccable taste. As a meticulous and mouthwatering array of extravagances from the award winning culinary team at Sofitel Melbourne On Collins arrive at your table, Silven concocts a banquet of more otherworldly wonders that will delight and astound in equal measure. This is the event that has floored jaws around the world, turning even the most iron-clad sceptics into ardent admirers in the course of one decadent evening. As with previous Festival works The Echo of the Shadow (2016) and Taylor Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (2017) this is once-in-a-lifetime stuff, and we can’t help but smile knowing what’s in store for Melbourne.

Wonders @ The Famous Spiegeltent
Scott Silven isn’t just one of the world’s finest mentalists and illusionists—he’s the rare sort of master who elevates his craft to the highest level of art. With Wonders Silven takes his audience on an intimate walk through the corridors of the mind, furnished by their own memories and lit by his keen and surprising insights. From stage and screen across the globe, Silven has accrued a reputation as one of the smartest and most stylish young proponents of his mysterious profession. Now he comes to Melbourne to transform our grand old Spiegeltent into a site for impossible acts of mind reading and uncanny prediction. His audience might be composed of strangers, but in Silven’s hands the invisible connections that bind us are made tangible, and secrets rise to the surface in the most unexpected ways. His feats might be the result of misdirection or psychology, but there’s a very real artistry that cuts beyond illusion to strike at the profoundest reaches of the human condition: telling us something about ourselves that isn’t easily put into words. The philosopher Descartes dubbed wonder the first of the passions, since all other desires stem from the hunger that wonder provokes. Prepare to supercharge your senses and set your mind alight.

Astonishment - The Laneway Theatre @ The Laneway Theatre
An evening of world class comedy and magic from internationally acclaimed Tim Ellis in his own top secret venue in Northcote. Witness the magic up close in this custom built 32 seat gold class theatre and explore a real life magician’s den in Melbourne’s most unique theatre experience. If you love ‘Penn & Teller: Fool Us’, and have always wanted to visit The Magic Castle… this is an absolute must see. “A feast for the eyes.” – Weekend Notes Truly an oasis of magic!” – Tay About Town “One mind bending trick upon another!” – Herald Sun Doors open at 7:00 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm sharp. Due to the secrecy of the venue, it may not be possible to admit latecomers. REVIEW – Theatre People “For the next hour we heard lots of noise – laughter, gasps, denial and shouts of delight. The Laneway Theatre, built in Ellis’ house, is a cosy, intimate venue, so there is nowhere for Ellis hide. It’s far harder to assume smoke and mirrors are responsible for what you are seeing, when you feel that you could reach out and touch the performer (many could – it’s a very audience participatory type of show). Almost everyone in the audience participated in at least one trick – a few people even went back for more. Ellis is one of those performers that even if you aren’t into their genre/field, their face is familiar. Tim Ellis has performed on a LOT of TV shows, and is something of the face of magic in Australia. He is calm and personable when you meet him as you take your seat, and wait for the show to start, or perhaps explore his magic and puzzle collection. Once the lights go down, his energy levels rise as the performance begins. Every single trick that Ellis performs involves a volunteer from the audience. Ellis’ patter as he moves through his performance, and the nature of some of the tricks kept the laughs coming steadily. It’s easy to see how he won the ‘Best Close up Magician in Australia’, in fact it almost seems like a job requirement in this tiny (but very comfortable) theatre. It really was quite amazing to be so close to the performer and still not be able to work out how certain illusions were performed. Ellis is a consummate performer. If you wish to regain the wonder you had as a child, visit the Laneway Theatre and prepare to be Astonished!”
