Luna Shimada and Losander to land for Maya 2010
Thiruvananthapuram: The world’s first woman magicians’ meet will be held on 30th of May in Thiruvananthapuram by the Magic Academy. The Academy's main inspiration for going for such a unique event is simply the theme - Equal rights, equal opportunities: Progress for all – of this year’s International Women’s Day.
World's no. 1 magic family
As registrations start mounting up, world's no. 1 woman magician, Luna Shimada has confirmed her presence with family for the Maya 2010. She will offer a daytime class for her counterparts and an evening gala performance. A Las Vegas thriller, Luna is daughter of legendary Japanese magician Shimada. Her entry to the world of wonders was at the age of 12, as an assistant for her father. For Maya 2010, Luna will be accompanied by her husband Losander, who is widely described as the emperor of the art of levitation, and their eight-year-old daughter Tara. With his majestic appearance similar to the ancient Nordic Wizard, Mr. Losander is sure to keep his Indian counterparts under his spell. He is also coming ready to take a class and give an evening performance.
Competitions only for ladies
Another attraction of the event is that all categories of competitions are exclusively reserved for woman magicians. Besides regular Stage and Close-up categories, there will be Kitchen Magic, a thoroughly new section for the participants to contest. Contestants for this category have to appear in the guise of a typical Indian housewife and work magic using more kitchen utensils and vegetables than common magic equipments. And the jury, of course would comprise of a female member.
Dealers have started lining up
Three major dealers have already registered for the event. More dealers are in the queue. Male magicians can also attend the event.
