Tales of a Magical Circus sees these seasoned performers swirl and twirl their impeccable skills together to create an enchanting show that overflows with hula hoops, bunny rabbits and stunning displays of magic.
A second – generation magician, Lee Cohen’s life – long love for the art began when she assisted her father’s act from the age of eight. International opportunities to teach and perform have included stints in South Africa, Hong Kong, Korea and America. After studies and experience in music, make – up, art design, acting and television presenting, magic stole Cohen’s heart.
Emma Shepherd’s dream to be a circus artist commenced at the age of nine. Starting her career with Brisbane’s Flipside Circus, Shepherd eventually moved to Melbourne to pursue her dream. Then in 2011, she graduated from the National Institute of Circus Arts with specialties in hula hooping, hoop diving, aerial net and tumbling. She was also selected to perform as part of the 2012 Olympics in London.
Voila! is the refreshing result of this quirky partnership.
