Simon Coronel

Simon Coronel is one of the most skilled illusionists in the Southern Hemisphere. Using pure dexterity and no tricky props, he creates live performance art that seems utterly impossible.

He is the winner of more than 15 international awards, and in 2009 became the fourth Australian in history to win an award at the FISM World Championships of Magic and Illusion. He has appeared on TV in four countries and is one of the few Australians to be regularly invited to perform at the world famous Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood.

Simon was very entertaining and engaged everyone in his presentation. He was certainly very skilled, but more than that he really drew everyone into his performance. I was particularly impressed that he had thought about who his audience was – a teaching staff – and wove references to this into his dialogue with them. His use of technology to enhance his presentation again added greatly to the show. On all levels his interaction with the audience was amazing. It was a great afternoon.
