Dr Taliesin, expert close-up and parlour magician, is one of the few Australians to have been made a member of the Magic Circle (London) – one of the oldest, most exclusive and prestigious magic societies in the world.
His Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut show, Classic Conjuring, premiered in 2018 with glowing audience reviews from the sell-out crowd. Launching in Sydney in 2019, Classic Conjuring became one of the few regular, high-end close-up magic shows in existence.
Equally at home on stage and with smaller gatherings, Dr Taliesin has performed for over a decade at private and corporate events, birthday parties and charity fund-raisers, and major events including for the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
In 2018 Dr Taliesin also became one of the only people in the world to be awarded a PhD for studying magic and magicians. As a magic historian and theorist, he has lectured at The Magic Circle’s London Headquarters, and his writings have appeared in the journal of the Association of International Magic Spectators.
