Magician, illusionist and escape artist, Cosentino touches down in the Adelaide Festival Theatre on February 16, premiering his Decennium tour to celebrate 10 years of jaw-dropping mystique.
Cosentino’s first national tour in three years includes 16 shows and will begin on January 19 at Newcastle’s Civic Theatre and continue through Perth, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Toowoomba before wrapping up at The Star on the Gold Coast on March 4.
In the ten years since Cosentino became an overnight sensation on Australia’s Got Talent, he has gone on to become a household name in Australia and a genuine super-star on the global stage.
“The last 10 years have been incredible for me, both professionally and personally,” said Cosentino regarding Decennium.
“Australia really got to know me via AGT and since then, I have toured consistently to full houses across the globe, was the first Australian magician ever to create 9 prime-time TV specials which have been screened throughout the world, have become a multiple best-selling author, and even had a feature in a Hollywood movie.
“What a ride it has been! My brand-new stage spectacular ‘Decennium’ is a celebration of everything I have achieved over the last decade,” he added.
Decennium is a 90-minute stage spectacular, which was written, produced, and choreographed by Cosentino. Watch as he performs his most death-defying escapes that will thrill your senses, his greatest mind-boggling stage illusions and cutting-edge street magic that twists your view of reality.
“All of the pieces in this show have been chosen for a reason as they represent a significant time and place within my career.
“I’m so proud of ‘Decennium’, it’s the best production I have ever created, and I can’t wait to take it on the road. I can assure fans, young and old, that this is one show that you definitely do not want to miss!”
Cosentino’s trademark blend of dance and magic with a touch of hilarious audience participation will take you on a journey that will captivate fans, new and old, until the very last jaw-dropping moment.
Cosentino was the first Australian magician to have his own TV shows. He has written, produced, and starred in nine highly successful prime-time specials, which have now been broadcast in over 40 countries and seen by over 500 million people.
His award-winning live touring shows have been staged to rave reviews and full houses in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Macau and across South East Asia.
A winner of multiple Merlin Awards, the highest accolades in the magic industry, Cosentino has been awarded both the ‘International Magician of the Year’ and the ‘International Escape Artist of the Year’.
The Merlin Awards are presented by the International Magician’s Society in New York and previous winners include David Copperfield, Criss Angel and Penn & Teller.
Cosentino was the runner up on Australia’s Got Talent season 5, the winner of Dancing With The Stars Australia season 13 and had a starring role in the Jackie Chan film ‘Bleeding Steel’, which debuted #1 at the Chinese box office.
After struggling with learning and reading difficulties as a child, Cosentino has now become a best-selling author. His autobiography ‘Anything is Possible’ is on the official ‘best sellers’ list and has been released in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and right across Asia.
Cosentino has also created an animated book series called ‘The Mysterious World of Cosentino’. The four-book series has been released globally to critical acclaim.
His latest book ‘Tricked’, an instructional magic & performance hardback, will be released in Australia, New Zealand and across Asia in November 2022.
