Have You Heard?…
by Maria Ibâñez / September 12, 2011
 

Greetings, the tenth anniversary of the horrific and infamous 9/11 has come and gone, however, reading the news reports we are told that we must remain ever vigilant and that life as we knew it pre the 9/11 date is never to be again. We thank God and say a prayer daily in memory of all those whose lives were lost that fateful day as well as for those who still continue to lose their lives as a consequence of the event, whether due to the fumes or other exposures at the Towers or in harms way defending freedom in lands far away from their loved ones.  God bless each and every one of them. 

Thank you everyone for your concern at my not being too visible either on Facebook or by email in the last couple of weeks.  As you know, I am a diabetic and woke up one morning with a terrible tooth ache which required some work and for which I had not taken antibiotics prior to the dental procedures so between the pain and not feeling up to par, I had been a little scarce.  Thank you though for your concern and for your calls and emails, you are all loved and appreciated. 

We did spend the holiday weekend in Palatka with both our sons, daughter in law and our beloved grandson.  The real magic in the world is the speed with which that little one is growing.  My goodness, I can’t believe it was only a couple of years ago that he was a baby in our arms and now he is swimming the full length of the pool and talking up a storm.  At the risk of sounding like a cliché…..”they grow so fast”! 

Until next time my friends, keep a dream in the making for you create your tomorrows by what you dream today.

MAGICIANS IN THE SPOTLIGHT


 

ALEXANDER BLADE

The man who creates for you
a miracle not an illusion!
 

Alexander Blade was born in Holguin, Province of Oriente, Cuba in the year 1973, and from a very early age felt attracted to the art of magic. At the young age of 9 (nine) he took his first magic lessons. 

By the year 1987, he was diligent in his studies of magic, acting and performance. He was enrolled in classes at a theater and shortly thereafter was offered an opportunity to participate in a presentation that involved theater and magic and through which he was able to demonstrate what he had learned. The show received an award for the performance by Alexander Blade, who, although still a student in middle school, had received invitations to two magic conventions by the end of the following year. At these two conventions, held in 1988, he received awards for his technique and agility of movement. 

He was already a part of one of the leading dance and performance companies in Cuba by 1989, and was an important part of the show called “Ritual” which involved both contemporary dance and magic. The idea of incorporating magic in the dance theater was very important for Blade, who was awarded his own show in 1990. Also in 1990 he was made a member of both AHS (Asociacion Hermanos Saiz) and UNEAC (Union de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba), the leading Guilds of the country; these memberships afforded him the opportunity to join the troupe of performers who worked for the international tourism as well as landing him a Television program where he was able to further show his knowledge of the art. 

Towards the end of the year, the program director, Lilo Vitaplana and the assistant director, Mariela, invited him to participate in a Cuban television program on channel 6, “Dando Vueltas”, an invitation that led to his being named the star of the show, in addition to being offered the opportunity to work in a brand new show that would be opening at the famous Tropicana Nightclub and subsequently this would lead to his traveling throughout the international hotels around the island with the Turarte Corporation, an option which he took. It was to this end that he wrote and choreographed is own show titled “Caribe Magic” and with that show was asked to transfer to the tourism hotels at the North end of the island where he also joined in and performed as master of ceremonies for the popular and well known Sol Melia; a Spanish group. 

Alongside Sol Melia, Alexander Blade proceeded to perform at Rio de Luna, Rio de Mares, Playa Esmeralda, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo and an aquarium belonging to Fidel Castro, himself. His talents were recognized and he received an invitation to visit Argentina; after doing the necessary paperwork and going through the proverbial red tape, his visit out of the country was approved and upon arriving in Argentina, Alexander decided not to return. 

Once settled in Buenos Aires, Alexander received his membership in EMA (Entidad Magica Argentina), a very prestigious magic society in the country, and he began to perform in important television shows on channels such as 7, channel 26, Telefe and America TV. Through his work in television, in 2001, he makes the acquaintance of Martin Argayo, an Argentinian producer, and through this acquaintance he is able to go on a performance tour to Villa Carlos Paz, Ciudad de Cordoba with a well known dancing actress, Alejandra Padron, and actor Juan Jose Camera. 

The latter part of the year he also was an integral part of “El Show del Lagarto”, a peculiar show where through his magical acts Alexander Blade is recognized for his performing style which sets him apart from the rest, and he is signed to a contract by Luis Chela to perform magic on a television program titled “Café Fashion”, a leading comedy show of the country.

By the year 2002, Alexander started touring with his magic and left for Spain, France and Portugal, working at leading theaters in said countries before returning to Argentina. It is at this point in time that he meets Ernesto Dhue, of Ernesto Dhue Producciones, with whom he undertakes several projects for television and shows in nightclubs and theaters in Paseo La Plaza. 

Fernando Keops gets in touch with Alexander in 2003 to take him on tour to Uruguay, Brazil and Costa Rica. Once again Alexander is off and this time it costs him a possible contract to perform on cruises for a well known cruise ship chain.While in these countries, he performs for several television programs on street magic, at numerous important theaters and stages and at the end of 2004 returns to Argentina to perform theater with a troupe known as La Colmena. At this theater once again Alexander writes a magic show which he also choreographs and performs. 

In 2005 he meets illusionist and hand shadows master, Sonny Fontana. Sonny’s advice and suggestions bring an entirely new dimension to Alexander’s show and it is at this time that he decided to move with his family to the United States, where he has begun a new stage in his artistic life. 

Alexander, having come to the United States, writes an entirely new show and begins to work with America TV. Subsequently he does some shows with GEN TV and then goes on to work with Maria Antonieta Colin at Telemundo.   Although he receives several offers from Univision, he decides this is not the right time for him to accept them.

In 2007, he goes on tour once again, this time performing in North and South Carolina. He also performed at numerous casinos and nightclubs at Niagara Falls, Canada. The year kept Alexander very busy with contracts and travel. 

Dominican Republic was the next location that Alexander was asked to perform at. Songwriter, singer Gilberto Santarosa took Alexander on tour; his performances received a tremendous amount of publicity in the national newspapers and television of the country. 

Subsequent to his performances in the Dominican Republic, he was invited to a very important magicians convention in Colombia, “Medellin Llena Eres de Gracia”. During his stay in Colombia, he had an opportunity to participate in over two dozen television programs, before a sold out Teatro Metropolitano, performed with other well known magical celebrities such as Marco from Panama, Sylvester the Jester and his close personal friend, Sonny Fontana, in addition to several local magicians. 

They say there is no rest for the weary and this held true. Immediately upon his return to the U.S., Alexander was back on stage performing at the Seminole Hard Rock Café for a sell out crowd of 3,000. As always, rave reviews and standing ovations were received by Alexander Blade for his performance. 

He is currently working on his best project to date alongside his Manager, Gustavo Cabrera, with whom he is writing, choreographing and finalizing details for a show without precedent; a show full of fantasy and fear; a show that will have the audience member sitting in a chair where they will feel as though they are virtually within a movie. This new show will debut in 2009 and will do so in Las Vegas, due to the complex technical needs of combining film, theater, action and horror all at once. 

Alexander Blade is a well rounded artist; throughout his career he has grown in giant leaps in his art, which he has taken to many countries and which has afforded him the opportunity of sharing the stage with some greats of magic such as Fernando Keops, who besides being a friend is a brother to him; some others, listed her in alpha order, include Michael Ammar, Gaetan Bloom, John Calvert, Aldo & Rachel Colombini, Maria Ibáñez, Rick del Vecchio, Fantasio, Sonny Fontana, Mac King, Gustavo Lorgia, Rene Levand Max Maven; Gustavo Raley, Topaz, Tommy Wonder; and many more who form the group of friends and stars of the world of magic for whom Alexander Blade has a great deal of respect.

MAGICIANS LIFE 

RICHARD WISEMAN 

Magician, psychology professor reveals
tricks and truths behind paranormality
Review by Robert Starr

 A man takes your hand, tells you to relax and then traces the lines on your palm to uncover the mysteries of your past, present and future. He tells you that you’re a kind person. That the line over there means that you’re a devoted friend, though you can be a little bit selfish. He even knows about your recently deceased uncle. Is the man an honest, true-to-life psychic, or is he using some sort of trick to make it appear as though he is? And, more importantly, how can we tell the difference?

Cosentino finds his great escape

Escape artist and Illusionist Cosentino. Photo by Wayne Taylor
Australia’s Got Talent runner-up Cosentino says magic transformed his life 

IT’S no exaggeration to say magic changed Paul Cosentino’s life. As a young child, he was shy, not very popular and educationally a slow developer. “I didn’t read my first word until I was in grade three,” says the magician/escape artist/illusionist and runner-up in this year’s Aus-tralia’s Got Talent. “I cannot explain how terrible it was to be asked to read out loud. It was shocking. It really crushes you.” 

His mother, a school principal, took him to all kinds of experts, but nothing helped until, aged 12, he learnt his first coin trick. Suddenly, he wanted to know more.

The Ace of Green – Magic at Hotel Rex
Sebastian Boswell III, RJ Owens and Adam Sachs
deliver unexpected sleights at Hotel Rex..
By Liz Bell – September 8, 2011

 

 A three pronged balancing act makes Magic at the Rex
a full spectacle of magic, not just tricks. 

San Francisco – My companion and I arrived at The Hotel Rex at 7:40 for the 8pm show. The small library bar was crowded, and buzzing with excitement. The clinking of cocktails could be heard in the background as the patrons made their way to the bar. We confirmed our reservation in front of the intimate salon to the left of the library. It felt as if we had been transported to the 1920s, waiting for a traveling circus sideshow where we paid a nickel to view what surprises may be behind the curtains. We ordered two bourbons and a couple appetizers from the bartender to bring inside the salon. There was no food service or drink service inside the salon, so plan accordingly.

Saludos, el décimo aniversario de la horrible e infame 9 / 11 ha ido y venido, sin embargo, la lectura de los informes de prensa nos dice que debemos permanecer siempre alerta y la vida que conociamos antes de la fecha 9 / 11 nunca volvera a ser . Damos gracias a Dios y decimos una oración diaria en la memoria de todos aquellos que perdieron la vida aquel fatídico día, así como para aquellos que siguen perdiendo la vida como consecuencia del evento, ya sea debido a los vapores u otras exposiciones en las Torres o en peligro a la defensa de la libertad en tierras lejanas de sus seres queridos. Dios los bendiga a todos y cada uno de ellos.

 

Gracias a todos por su preocupación por mi ya que  no estuve demasiado visible, ya sea en Facebook o por correo electrónico en el último par de semanas. Como usted sabe, soy diabético y me desperte una mañana con un dolor de muelas terrible que requiere un cierto trabajo y para los que no habían tomado antibióticos antes de los procedimientos dentales que entre el dolor y no sentireme bien, yo había estada un poco escaso. Gracias, por su interés y para sus llamadas y correos electrónicos, todos ustedes son amados y apreciados.

 

Pasamos el fin de semana de vacaciones en Palatka con nuestros hijos, nuera y mi nieto amado. La verdadera magia en el mundo es la velocidad con la que está creciendo. Dios mío, no puedo creer que era sólo un par de años atrás, que era un bebé en los brazos y ahora está nadando toda la longitud de la piscina y hablando hasta por los codos. A riesgo de sonar como un cliché … .. “crecen tan rápido!”

Hasta la próxima ves, mantengan un sueño en elaboracion ya que crean sus mañanas con lo que sueñan hoy.

ALEXANDER BLADE

El hombre que les ofrece
un milagro, no una illusion!

Alexander Blade nace en Holguin, provincia de Oriente, Cuba en el año 1973.  Con poca edad se siente atraido por el arte de ilusionar que es la magia, y con tan solo 9 años comenzo a estudiar magia.

En el año 1987 ya estudiaba con mucho interés la magia y la actuacion, matriculando en teatro.  Al poco tiempo, le proponen participar en un proyecto de teatro con magia donde toda la obra mostraba su arte.

En el 1989 forma parte de un espectaculo con el grupo “Codanza”, uno de los grupos mas importantes de las artes escenicas en Cuba y conforman un espectaculo llamado “Ritual”, donde habia danza contemporanea y magia.  La idea de incluir magia en el teatro o la danza siempre fué lo más importante para Blade, logrando en el 1990 su propio espectaculo. 

En este mismo año lo nombran miembro de la A.H.S. y de la U.N.E.A.C., las dos asociaciones mas importantes de Cuba.   Esto le da la posibilidad de poder entrar al sistema de artistas que trabajan para el turismo international.  A la misma vez, logra tener un programa de televisión en el que muestra sus trucos y actos de magia.

A fines de este año, el Director de televisión, Lilo Vitaplana, y la Conductora, Mariela, lo invitan a participar en un programa de televisión Cubana en el canal 6, llamado “Dando Vueltas” donse se convierte en el mago del programa.  La U.N.E.A.C. le da la opcion de que comience a trabajar en un show nuevo en el Cabaret Tropicana, que luego giraria por todos los hoteles internacionales con la corporacion de Turarte, a la que pertenecio.

Mas tarde logró armar un show llamado “Caribe Magic” donde logró entrar al mercado del turismo internacional y fue trasladado a los hoteles de turismo de la isla en la costa norte donde entró en el grupo de animación de los Sol Melia, un grupo Español que apoyó su trabajo; trabajando en Rio de Luna, Rio de Mares, Playa Esmeralda, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo y el acuario privado de Fidel Castro en la isla.

Durante este mismo año es invitado a la Argentina donde decide quedarse y empezar de cero.  En poco tiempo logra ser miembro de la E.M.A., Entidad Magica Argentina, y comienza a realizar importantes shows en televisión como son Canal 7, Canal 26, Telefe y America TV, donde logra estar en importantes programas de este pais.

En el 2001 concoce a Martin Argayo, un productor Argentino, y logra hacer temporada en Villa Carlos Paz, Ciudad de Córdoba, con la actriz y bailarina Alejandra Pradon y el actor Juan José Camero con una obra de teatro.

Tambien estuvo en “El Show del Lagarto”, un show peculiar donde hace sus actos de magia.  Alexander Blade marca la diferencia por sus estilo y asento que es diferente y es contratado por Luis Chela para hacer magia en un programa de televisión llamado “Café Fashion”.  Era un estelar de la televisión Argentina, un show de comediantes.

En el año 2002 sale de viaje rumgo a España, Francia y Portugal, trabajando en importantes teatros de estos paises.  Regresa a Argentina para continuar su trabajo.  Conoce a Ernesto Dhue de Ernesto Dhue Producciones, con el que realiza diferentes proyectos como es televisión y varios shows en “Cafebary”, teatros del Paseo La Playa y lo llama Fernando Keops para una gira, en el 2003, de magia por todo Uruguay, Brasil y Costa Rica.  Alexander nuevamente emprende este nuevo proyecto.  Una cadena de cruceros lo trata de contratar pero el no acepta en este momento.
En estos paises realiza varios programas de televisión en la calle y trabaja en importantes teatros y coliseos.  Al final del 2004 regresa a la Argentina y hace teatro con el grupo “La Colmena”, donde Alexander termina montando una obra, de teatro, con magia.

En el 2005 conoce al ilusionista y especialista de sombras chinescas, Sonny Fontana, y algunos de sus consejos aportan a su show otra forma peculiar y decide mudarse con su familia a los Estados Unidos, donde comienza una nueva etapa; arma un nuevo show, y comienza trabajando en America TV.   Luego hace algunos programas en Genteve, y pasa a trabajar con la cadena de Telemundo con Maria Antonieta Colin.   Recibe propuestas de Univision, pero en este momento no las acepta.

En el 2007 realiza shows en Carolina del Norte y Carolina del Sur.  Tambien viaja a Canada, donde trabaja en los casinos de Las Cataratas del Niagara y en el 2008 prepara su gira a Republica Dominicana, donde trabaja con el cantoautor Gilberto Santarosa.  Teniendo repercusion en la presna nacional, periodicos y televisión del pais, Alexander Blade es invitado como figura al congreso de magia “Medellin Llena Eres de Gracias”. 

En Colombia participó en mas de 24 programas de televisión de diferentes canales y llenando el Teatro Metropolitan en la ciudad de Medellin, comparte el escenario con figuras importantes como el Mago Marco de Panamá, Silvester the Jester, su estimado amigo Sonny Fonana, y algunos magos importantes de Medellin y Bogotá.

Alexander Blade regresa a los Estados Unidos y realiza un show impactante en el “Hard Rock Cafe” de los Seminoles en Florida, llenando el teatro con mas de 3000 personas.

Ahora se encuentra con su propio proyecto, junto a su agente, Gustavo Cabrera, con el que está montando un show sin presedente y lleno de fantasia y terror.  Es como sentarse en un asiento virtual y meterse dentro de una pelicula.   Esto será en el 2009 y es un show que espera presentarse en los escenarios de Las Vegas, por su complejidad y forma, mezclando peliculas, teatro, accion y horror.

Alexander Blade es un artista completo que en el transcurso de su carrera ha crecido a pasos agigantados en el desarrollo de su arte, logrando llevarlo a varios paises y compartiendo escenarios con grandes figuras de la magia como son, Fernando Keops, que ademas de amigo es un hermano; algunos mas que siguen aqui en orden alfabetica, Michael Ammar, Gaetan Bloom, John Calvert, Aldo & Rachel Colombini, Maria Ibáñez, Rick del Vecchio, Fantasio, Sonny Fontana, Mac King, Gustavo Lorgia, Rene Levand Max Maven; Gustavo Raley, Topaz, Tommy Wonder; y otros que faltan por nombrar, son el gran grupo de amigos y estrellas el espectaculo de magia con los que Alexander tiene una gran amistad y por los cual siente un gran respeto.

Un hombre toma de la mano, le dice que usted se relaje y luego traza las líneas de la palma de su mano para descubrir los misterios de su pasado, presente y futuro.
Él le dice que usted es una persona muy amable.
Que la línea de allá quiere decir que usted es un amigo fiel, aunque puede ser un poco egoísta. Incluso sabe acerca de su tío recién fallecido. Es el hombre honesto, fiel a la vida psíquica, o está utilizando algún tipo de truco para hacer que parezca que es él? Y, más importante aún, ¿cómo podemos saber la diferencia?
