Illusionists 2.0 Adam Trent

The Futurist Adam Trent

My wee video above starts off bad. Trying too hard to be contoversial. Anyway…Adam Trent, holy crap. As I was with others in the production of Illusionists 2.0, I was riveted to my seat, as Adam Trent was hilarious.

Absolute gold. From the moment he walked on stage, he was a commanding presence, and just like the rest of the cast, knew his stuff, and what worked for him.

Even the Ambitious Card took on a new element, not just through his handling, but the use of 3D live screening. Something that hs never been done before, and can see it becoming a staple diet of other performances and shows.

As I allude to in the video, there is a crash helmet involved, and a climax, that I just did not see coming. Hence my ascertation that Adam TRent Screwed with my mind. Bast**d…

What must be, I assume, a signature piece with digital graphics, played very well, and was incredibly thought out. To envisage a routine that involves such hardware, practice, rehearse, and bring it to such a perfomring standard, has helped propel Adam Trent to work the stage in Illusionists 2.0

You can bet that the produceers Tim Lawson and Simon Painter, looked at a whole swathe of performers, and decided that Adma Trent would fit into the mix.

A name not many may know, but after Illusionists 2.0, a name that will grow even bigger. (Not that it hasn’t already, due to his own efforts…)

We liked it we did…
