Ravi Mayar 11.30 am
British born, Canadian raised, now permanently living in the UK, celebrity magician Ravi Mayar has performed his fantastic skills in close up magic, mix and mingle hypnotism and pickpocket trickery to an array of people across 3 different continents for over 45 nationalities.
Ravi Mayar is well-respected not only as a performer in the magic community, but also as a trainer and creator of magic. Words really can’t describe his astonishing performance, it is just one of those things you need to see with your own eyes to believe, and even then, you still won’t believe what you are seeing.
Pickpocketing is a form of larceny which is in fact illegal, but when performed for entertainment with full ethical integrity, can be one of the most amazing things to watch, and even fall victim to. Pickpocketing requires a considerable amount of dexterity and the ability to misdirect, which Mayar Magic is able do all too well. Ravi shares his unique approach that combines the art of hand magic with "dipping" the art of pickpocketing.
