Magicfest Gala: Levitations
Sat 8 July | Festival Theatre
2.30pm & 7.30pm
The best illusion and circus acts from around the world assembled to perform a visually stunning and breath-taking flight of fancy, many making their Scottish debuts, at the Magic Festival’s flagship show.
Floating, suspended in space, soaring and shooting through the air… we present a real version our single most popular dream – flight – in a one-off show, never to be repeated.
Enter a room where the rules of Gravity are bent and broken… just for a moment… at ‘Levitation’ the 2017 MagicFest Gala performance.
