Who says Magic isn’t Dangerous?

From time to time, Ning posts photos on her blog of her bruises she gets as a result of illusions during performances and rehearsals. She had one particularly nasty bruise from “Crystal Metamorphosis” last year. Our latest illusion “360 Sawing” has been particularly challenging as well. Here’s a bruise I got this week from rehearsing the new ‘wicked’ illusion…


If you think that is bad… you should see the prop… it’s fine. Stainless steel versus flesh. Steel always win… unless you are Wolverine.

The good thing is the illusion is coming along very well!

The announcement of this new illusion actually made the news. About.com Magic & Illusions picked up the story a weeks ago. Today, The Straits Times LIFE! highlighted and described the “360 Sawing” in an article on the “Nil Sine Labore” gala concert at the Esplanade on 6 Jun 2009, Sat, 7.30pm.

    That must have hurt real bad. Battle scars and badges from performing that illusion. I didn’t know that magic can be so painful.
