Magic Mike


I’ve met Magic Mike on my way home. He is a street performer. A magician to be precise. I have taken a photograph of him during his preparations for the next act. I have given him my card and quickly explained about this web site. He looked at the photo and was quite impressed. He insisted I take another photo during his favourite act: sun glasses, which climb upon his face by themselves. As you can see from the photo above they are certainly moving up there. Why doesn’t Mike’s tuxedo have sleeves? So you cannot accuse him of pulling an ace out of his sleeve during the card act. He was a nice bloke to talk to. If you see his act, say hello.

Street Step Dancer


This street performer mesmerised the public for a very long time step dancing opposite the Sydney Town Hall. Not only is step dancing rare as a street act but his selection of music was quite surprising too: classical. The arrangements were upbeat and performed on modern instruments but the tunes were unmistakably of the old masters.

I think his muscular body raised few smiles amongst the female audience too.
