The Clairvoyants, a magician and mentalist duo, will perform at Colombo’s Nelum Pokuna Rajapakse Theatre on April 4, part of efforts by Cinnamon Life to amp up the entertainment scene in the Sri Lankan capital.
Comprising Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten, The Clairvoyants were offered a spot in ‘The Illusionists’, the largest touring magic show in the world. The duo received worldwide acclaim in 2016 when they placed second on America’s Got Talent Season 11 and again secured the spot as runners-up at AGT: The Champions.
In 2016, The Clairvoyants were also commissioned to headline the show ‘The Illusionists – Turn of the Century’ in New York City, which turned out to be the bestselling magic show recorded in Broadway history.
Bringing the event to Colombo reflects Cinnamon Life’s desire to position itself as a leader in entertainment ahead of the opening of its own performance venues.
It wants to eventually be “the heartbeat of the city” and make its mark as Colombo’s lifestyle capital. The integrated development, positioned as a “city within a city”, will feature hotels, shopping arcades, theatres, office spaces, multi-purpose entertainment venues, restaurants and apartments.
Dileep Mudadeniya, head of brand marketing, Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts commented: “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 set to become a hub in its own right… 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.”
