♥ MATT HENNEM ♥
“Beyond awesome. . .” – Derren Brown
With a unique blend of juggling, manipulation, dance and illusion, Matt breathes mesmerising life into an otherwise inanimate crystal ball. His contact juggling act is a guaranteed jaw-dropper and has headlined at London’s hottest cabaret venues… Café De Paris, Pigalle Club, The Roundhouse, Circus and The Hippodrome to name but a few. Matt has also made appearances on BBC, CBBC, Channel 4, Sky and ITV.
“a triumph. . . He conjures that rare magic that is no less entrancing for being simple.” – The Daily Telegraph
“There are loads of performers on the scene that I really rate. . . Matt Hennem, the most incredible juggler I’ve seen; it’s like he has power over gravity!” – Jonathan Goodwin, TV Escapologist in Time Out London
“this was something else. . . I think my jaw actually dropped a few times it was so well done.” – reviewer, Time Out
“The dance enraptured the audience, and Hennem received thunderous applause for his magical manipulation of the ball” – Erotic Review
♥ ELSIE DIAMOND ♥
Elsie Diamond combines burlesque with playing the ukulele and a voice from a bygone era. With her Jessica Rabbit figure and snow-white complexion, she holds audiences spellbound. Miss Diamond will add a vintage sparkle to the show with her sultry, musical-based numbers.
♥ PIXIE LE KNOTT ♥
Pixie Le Knot is one of the most flexible contortionists in the UK. In her breathtaking performance she will perform the most extreme and amazing backbends which very few other british contortionists are able to achieve. She is currently London based but performs at venues all over the UK, internationally and has toured with a traditional big top circus. She will be appearing in Paramount Insurge‘s new horror movie ‘The Devil Inside‘ which will be released January 6th 2012 in the USA and March 2nd 2012 in the UK.

Mentalism, Mind Magic or Psychological Illusions, call it what you will, Alex McAleer reads minds.
