The iconic act will feature the world champions of mindreading , Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten, as they gear up to showcase a fabulous new world of mentalism and unique illusions.
Over the years, the Austrian duo has earned a number of eminent awards, titles and nominations. In 2015, Amélie and Thommy were named ‘German Champions of Mentalism,’ ‘Magicians of the Year’ and ‘World Champions of Mentalism’ – a prize that wasn’t awarded to anyone in 30 years. The duo received worldwide acclamation in 2016 when they stood second on America’s Got Talent Season 11 and were named ‘Stage Magicians of the Year’ the same year. Recently, The Clairvoyants yet again secured the spot as runner’s-up at AGT: The Champions, an epic showdown of talent between the best and finest acts from Got Talent shows across the world. Their acts have always been sold out around the world leaving the audiences mesmerized and puzzled by their novel tricks and illusions.
Commenting on this event, Dileep Mudadeniya, Head of Brand Marketing, Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts said, “We are delighted to bring this world-famous duo to Sri Lanka giving people a chance to experience the impeccable talent, abilities and showmanship of The Clairvoyants. This highly anticipated event will provide yet another glimpse of what you can expect from Cinnamon Life, Colombo’s paragon of lifestyle and entertainment. Cinnamon Life, a multi-faceted development is set to become a hub in its own right, that will deliver inspiring moments at every touch point and will play a crucial role in attracting world-class entertainment acts to the island, elevating Colombo and Sri Lanka’s place as the rising stars of the region.”
Born and raised in Austria, Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten came together as a duo in 2011 upon realizing their mutual knack and penchant for performing illusions. Two months after they first met, they delivered their incredible ‘Second Sight’ act on stage, and within a year, they honed and developed it into a full-length show.
Having garnered considerable stature and repute within the region, they began touring Europe and in 2014, received their first long-term contract in America. After an impressive six-month run in ‘The Illusionarium’, a magic-infused cruise ship dinner show, The Clairvoyants were offered a highly coveted spot in ‘The Illusionists’, the largest touring magic show in the world. Amélie and Thommy have enjoyed several illustrious career highlights, including performing at the Sydney Opera House and appearing at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas alongside Grace Vanderwaal, winner of AGT Season 11. Later in 2016, The Clairvoyants celebrated yet another milestone, when they were commissioned to headline the show ‘The Illusionists – Turn of the Century’. Held at the Palace Theatre in New York City, ‘The Illusionists – Turn of the Century’ was recorded as the bestselling magic show in Broadway history.
The Clairvoyants will be brought down by Cinnamon Life as part of the brand’s ongoing effort to bring the best performances, experiences and shows in the world to the city.
