A master in sleight of hand and a quick wit, should be reason enough to draw you to Kevin Quantum. It’s funny to think that this magician was a scientist on his way to gaining a PhD before he took part in a reality television show. Through this reality show, Quantum was flown to Las Vegas to learn the art of the craft from two of the most prolific magicians in the world ‘Penn and Teller’. This experience led Kevin to halt his studies and instead indulge himself in the world of all things magic (Sure sounds like a Disney movie).
With the show commencing at a late time closer to the hours of the AM than the PM, this allowed for a few late night drinks and a true appreciation of the Garden Of Unearthly Delights. Walking into the show, Quantum has the ability to bring a bit of Penn and Teller, David Copperfield and Criss Angel all into one exclusive show.
With the show revolving around audience participation, your constantly engaged. Never a dull moment, Quantum’s magic provides grave anticipation that ultimately results in hysterical laughter and a bedazzlement of “Did that really just happen?”. Card tricks, magic hats, mind control and disappearing acts, be prepared for all. What truly binds the show together is Quantum’s performance, which will have you unsure if you paid to see a comic genius or a daring magical wonder of the world. The show is kept simple with few props and if seeing is believing, Quantum will have you re-evaluating your sense of sight.
Kevin Quantum, is defiantly one of the star performances for this year’s fringe. Performing a show to remember, that promises to kick-off anyone’s fringe experience with a bang!
Star Rating: 5/5

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
