Cinnamon Life to present a night of magic and mystery with iconic magician-mentalism duo, The Clairvoyants!
Tuesday 12th February 2019, Colombo: Bringing the best of talent and entertainment to the island once again, Cinnamon Life is set to present a magical show featuring the world-renowned magician and mentalist duo, The Clairvoyants. Taking place for one night only on the 4th of April 2019 at the Nelum Pokuna Rajapakse Theatre, the iconic act will feature Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten who are the world champions of mindreading and are gearing up to present a fabulous new world of mentalism and unique illusions.
Over the years, the European shooting stars have earned a number of eminent awards, titles and nominations to their name. In 2015, Amélie and Thommy were named ‘German Champions of Mentalism,’ ‘Magicians of the Year’ and ‘World Champions of Mentalism’ – a prize that hadn’t been awarded in 30 years. The duo received worldwide acclaim in 2016, when they became the runners-up of America’s Got Talent Season 11. They were also named “Stage Magicians of the Year” in 2016, and were nominated for the same title in 2017. Recently, the Clairvoyants yet again secured the spot as runner’s-up at AGT: The Champions, an epic showdown of talent between the best and finest acts from Got Talent shows across the world. Their shows have sold out around the world, and the Austrian duo have left audiences mesmerized and puzzled by their novel tricks and illusions.
Commenting on Cinnamon Life gearing up to host The Clairvoyants in Sri Lanka, Dileep Mudadeniya, Head of Brand Marketing Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts stated: “We are delighted to bring this world-famous act to audiences in Colombo, and give them the chance to experience the impeccable talent, abilities and showmanship of The Clairvoyants. This highly anticipated event will provide yet another glimpse of what you can expect from Cinnamon Life - Colombo’s paragon of lifestyle and entertainment. Cinnamon Life, a multi-faceted development is set to become a hub in its own right, that will deliver inspiring moments at every touch point and play a crucial role in attracting world-class entertainment acts to the island, elevating Colombo and Sri Lanka’s place as the rising stars of the region.”
Born and raised in Austria, Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten came together as a duo in 2011 October, upon realizing their mutual knack and penchant for performing illusions. Two months after they first met, they delivered their incredible ‘Second Sight’ act on stage, which within a year, they honed and developed into a full-length show. Having garnered considerable stature and repute within the region, Amélie and Thommy began touring Europe, and in 2014, the two received their first long-term contract in America. After an impressive six-month run in ‘The Illusionarium’, a magic-infused cruise ship dinner show, The Clairvoyants were offered a highly coveted featured spot in ‘The Illusionists’, the largest touring magic show in the world.
In a bid to showcase their craft to audiences across the globe and elevate their brand to ever greater heights, The Clairvoyants signed up for the eleventh season of America’s Got Talent (AGT), the largest reality TV competition in the world. Four months and six performances later, the dynamic duo captured the hearts of millions of Americans and clocked in at second place out of over 100,000 contestants. Since their resounding success in the world famous talent show, Amélie and Thommy have enjoyed several illustrious career highlights, including performing at the Sydney Opera House and appearing at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, alongside Grace Vanderwaal, winner of AGT Season 11. Later in 2016, The Clairvoyants celebrated yet another milestone in their careers, when they were commissioned to headline the show ‘The Illusionists – Turn of the Century’. Held at the Palace Theatre in New York City, ‘The Illusionists – Turn of the Century’ was recorded as the bestselling magic show in Broadway history.
The Clairvoyants will be presented by Cinnamon Life as part of the brand’s ongoing effort to bring the best performances, experiences and shows in the world to the city.
