As the magician prepares for his first appearance at the world-famous Magic Castle, Alexxander is also creating one of his most amazing illusions which shines a light on the emptiness in the Hollywood creative community due to the recent strikes.
LOS ANGELES (Aug 4th, 2023) – As the show business community continues to be turned upside down by the recent SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, one of the world’s finest illusionists is making bold plans to show his support – in a very magical way – with all those artists who remain on strike. Coming to Los Angeles for a seven-night appearance at the legendary Magic Castle in August, famed Norwegian illusionist Alexx Alexxander (and Norway’s Got Talent Finalist) is headed to Hollywood and is preparing for the biggest illusion of the year. With his team, the magician is laying plans to make the iconic Hollywood sign vanish from the Los Angeles skyline in support of the SAG-AFTRA and the WGA strike and include this in an upcoming TV special.
“I’m an artist and I feel a natural bond with other creative people,” said Alexxander during a break from a recent rehearsal for his upcoming LA appearance. “No matter where you are in the world, we all love the films and TV shows that come from Hollywood. As an illusionist, I wanted to use my art; to show support and puts a spotlight on what happens when creativity is not honored. It leaves a giant artistic void in the very fabric of our lives – just like the emptiness we would experience when the symbolic Hollywood sign was no longer there overlooking our creative city.”
Alexxander, who has made buildings, gas stations, and even a lake suddenly vanish, hopes that his latest illusion is one with a deeper purpose that will help people to understand the current strikes don’t just affect those in the entertainment industry, but also those who every day are uplifted by creative minds that look at the world in a different way.
Alexx Alexxander will make his Hollywood debut at the Magic Castle starting August 28th until September 3rd. For more information, please visit: www.magiccastle.com
