Is it magic, or an illusion of the mind? The arts of magic and mentalism are over 4000 years old, yet they continue to mystify and entertain audiences in 2018.
Watch veteran performers, magician Marcel Oudejans and mentalist Brendon Peel, as they show you what they have to offer in terms of mind-blowing entertainment, while they “duel on stage” in their respective disciplines. They’ll demonstrate their most visual illusions and mind-bending mystery, all with a twist of humour along the way.
In this brand new, never-before seen show we let you – yes YOU! – determine the outcome and the overall ending of the show depending on which you prefer more on the night: magic or mentalism.
This is a one of-a-kind magic illusion show that will allow the audience to be thrown into the driver’s seat as the audience decides what will happen next. Needless to say this show is guaranteed to be jaw dropping, hilarious, and above all entertaining.
Marcel Oudejans is one of those rare magicians who is less interested in accumulating accolades from his peers than he is in creating amazing and unforgettable experiences for his audiences.  Oudejans has been a full-time professional magician since 2003 and in that time has entertained hundreds of blue-chip corporate audiences, high-profile executives and at international conferences, casinos, and luxury hotels. He’s been the producer of Cape Town Magic Club since 2016.
Brendon Peel is an award-winning mentalist hailing from Port Elizabeth. Peel has performed at every Grahamstown National Arts Festival since 2011 with solo hit shows such as Think Twice, Magic Through the Ages, and Mind Over Magic. He has also performed all South Africa in theatre festivals, as well being booked for large corporate events. In 2017, Peel won the South African Theatre Magazine “Performer of the Year” award.
