Magic Words Tour 2023

The Magic Words Tour 2023 - the live show - was on the road in Namibia for the whole month of March! 

A mentalist, a storyteller and a shape-shifter conjured magic moments on stage: floating tables, mind-reading, magic of time, objects out of nowhere.
The magic offered 12 shows in the framework of the INITIATIVE "SCHOOLS: PARTNERS OF THE FUTURE (PASCH) for more than 4500 Namibian school children at 20 different schools in the country. 
We thank the world famous magicians.
