World-renowned, multi award-winning magician and West End star Ben Hart returns with his most personal show yet at the Kenton Theatre, on 11 November 2023.
Drawn from his experience travelling India to discover lost, real magic, Hart sheds his usual sleight of hand trickery in favour of stunning displays of wonderment, extra-sensory power and a search for the truth… This mind-popping show is rich in colour, passion and wicked humour. Don’t miss this chance to catch the world’s foremost magic storyteller in this all-new, jaw-dropping show. Ben Hart will premiere Jadoo in the gorgeous surroundings of the Palais du Variete Spiegeltent as part of Assembly’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival offering before heading out on a UK tour.
Renowned magician and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Ben Hart has travelled India collecting stories of the strange and the mystic whilst exploring his cultural heritage.
Ben has appeared on numerous UK and international TV series including NBC’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions, BBC’s The One Show and Pure Magic. He left audiences in ‘Wonder’ on his 2019 tour all over the UK and at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022.
In this brand new show Ben will be exploring the very essence of magic, taking away the ‘glitz’ and ‘sparkle’ often seen in modern day magic shows and exploring the raw beauty of a thought provoking story, gorgeously threaded with magical and impossible happenings. Inspired by traditional Indian street magic and by his own fantastical imagination, expect magic you have never seen before…
Ben has spent time in India both working with and learning from traditional street performers. This show will be a retelling of some of the stories and experiences Ben found on his way in his usual wonderfully engaging and enchanting style. As one of the world’s foremost magic storytellers and magic theatre makers, and with a father born in India, Ben finally turns his focus to his heritage.
Ben said: “The best part of my job is being able to share my magic with audiences across the country. I absolutely love touring and seeing loyal fans and meeting new ones. This show is one I am particularly proud of and I think it’s probably my best work to date. It is funny, a little bit dark and very baffling. I’ve wanted to share these ideas for a long time but recent years made that tricky. Finally, I’m able to present this all-new show to as many cities as my schedule allows! It’s a magic show unlike any you’ve seen before and I can guarantee it will amaze, amuse and fill you with wonder.”
