‘Draíocht‘ airs January 12th, 7.30pm on TG4
Magic has the ability to transcend space and time by creating a brief moment in which anything is possible. Spectators are instantly transported back to their childhood with a sense of total astonishment. There are no tricks in this video, only those ‘Magic Moments‘ where the camera has caught that same sense of astonishment in the spectators eyes. Watch as the magic slowly sinks in, it’s quite beautiful!
Part three of the White Rabbit Web Series see’s Rua perform a heart-stopping effect popularized by Keith Barry, in which a spectator must use their instincts to avoid an extremely sharp spike. Not for the faint hearted!
In December 2011 Rua was interviewed by a lovely group of DCU students for a small arts show they were making. One of the presenters, Aisling Brady, had previously seen Rua perform and features in the ‘Instinct’ video. He answered a lot of questions, and performed some cool mind-reading and magic effects!
In Part two of the White Rabbit Web Series, Rua plays an incredibly dangerous game of chance in the studio, with three unsuspecting volunteers. He also performs a cool street effect involving the destruction of a spectators Credit Card on the streets of Dublin
