A true entertainment trailblazer and master of illusion, Cosentino is coming back to Singapore from 24 August to 3 September 2023 at Sands Theatre to celebrate 10 years of global success with his best production yet; Cosentino: Decennium – The Greatest Live Magic Show.
Taking it a notch higher since his last highly-successful season of Cosentino: Anything is Possible here in 2017, you will watch Cosentino perform live, his most death-defying escapes, greatest mind-boggling stage illusions and cutting-edge street magic that twists their view of reality. Not forgetting his trademark blend of dance and magic with a touch of hilarious audience participation amongst both new and seasoned fans, that will have them captivated, until the very last jaw-dropping moment.
‘Flaming Jaws’ takes death-defying escapes to a whole new level. Cosentino is placed and shackled inside a regulation straitjacket, then attached upside down by his ankle’s underneath to the Jaws and hoisted into the air. The enormous set of steel jaws is held open by a single rope and set alight. Once the rope snaps the the steel jaws will come crashing down destroying anything or anyone that gets in its path.
Cosentino is now in a race to save his own life, he has 90 seconds to successfully escape the straitjacket, release himself from the burning rope and drop to the ground before the crushing force of the sharp-teethed jaws come crashing together in the ultimate climax.
Cosentino puts his psychic abilities to the test. 18 razor-sharp kitchen knives dangle above Cosentino’s head. The knives are connected and controlled by a sand timer. 2 padlocks and 350 identical keys are introduced. However, only two of the keys will actually open the locks.
A volunteer takes note of the correct keys (once the locks are opened and proven to work). Next, they drop the keys into a tray with the others and mix them up. In other words, lose the 2 correct keys in the bunch.
Cosentino has 90 seconds to escape the trap by franticly sifting through all the keys looking, trying and hoping to find the correct ones.
It’s been stated that two solid objects cannot occupy the same space at the exact same time. Very often we see the world around us as being solid, but… that’s not entirely true! The world is actually made up of millions of molecules that are separated and bouncing around. Nothing we look at is truly one hundred per cent solid – it just appears that way. So, if we didn’t necessarily see the world around us as solid but rather flexible could we actually change our physical reality as well?
Cosentino attempts to challenge that notion. A solid steel plate is introduced and displayed to the audience. Cosentino then melts through it bit by bit. The audience won’t believe their eyes as his body physically penetrates the plate. First his head, then his shoulders, followed by his legs and finally his entire body. It is a magical and marvellous illusion to watch.
A show suitable for all ages, Cosentino: Decennium – The Greatest Live Magic Show is a premier family entertainment written and produced by Cosentino himself. This is the most powerful, riveting and sought-after magic show in the entertainment industry today, and is presented in Singapore by Base Entertainment Asia under the direction of Chantal Prudhomme.
