Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (November 6th, 2007) – Renowned American magician and extreme
illusionist Robert Gallup will bring his international award-winning show,
“Extreme Magic & Deadly Escapes” to the Sands Theater from Thursday, 29th
November to Sunday, 2nd December 2007.
part magician and part extreme athlete, Robert Gallup has broken the moulds of
traditional magic with his fast-paced spectacular illusions, combined with
heart-stopping death-defying escapes.
Recipient of numerous international “Best
Show of the Year” awards from Las Vegas to Australia, Robert Gallup is the
creator, producer and star of the second largest touring magic show in the
world, and has performed in thirty countries on six continents, and been
featured on over 300 international television programs and series. And though he has had four immensely
successful stadium tours throughout China,
including his famous Hang & Burn
Escape 100 meters above the Great Wall at Badalin,
this will be his first performance in Macao.
performing in China, so I am
absolutely ecstatic to be coming to Macao.
And I’m especially thrilled to be able to debut to the Macao
audiences several new dangerous stunts never attempted anywhere in the world
before!” exclaimed Gallup,
“My life is to constantly push myself to new limits!”
With movie-star good looks and a rock-and-roll
attitude, this modern day Houdini constantly pushes the envelope of extreme
magic and death-defying escape both on and off stage. Gallup’s
show will not only feature spectacular illusions that defy reality, but several
large-scale legitimately death-defying escape attempts. In the “Pyre of Death” Gallup is locked and shackled to a steel bed
where fifty flaming spikes are suspended precariously above him. Once the rope
that suspends the spikes are set on fire Gallup
has only seconds to free himself. The danger-addicted daredevil explains, “I
get a real adrenaline rush every time I attempt this escape as there is always
a very real possibility of catastrophe.”
