Dynamo: stage magic shows need ‘reinventing’

by -

Magician Dynamo has claimed stage magic shows need ‘reinventing’, and has revealed plans to move into the live arena sector following the end of his television series.

Dynamo’s series – Magician Impossible – will end after four series this year on TV channel Watch.

Speaking at this year’s Edinburgh International Television Festival, the magician said he now planned to take his act onto the road.

“This is the final series of Magician Impossible. I think everyone wants to see me do it live and I think the possibilities in the live arena for magic is open for someone like myself to step into,” he said.

He added: “The magic shows we think of on the stage and in theatres are David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy. What they did for magic was phenomenal but now it’s time to reinvent [stage shows], and to bring up to date what people see as the stage magic show. I will have a go at that.”
