Vitaly Beckman brings the world of illusion to life in 'An Evening of Wonders' Feb. 14-16 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Illusionist extraordinaire Vitaly Beckman dazzles the audience over a three-day stint at the Cultural Centre on February 14, 15, and 16 with An Evening of Wonders. With his performance featuring object levitation, making people disappear from photographs, and escaping from chains using only his mind, Vitaly will be performing an array of unique illusions  in which “dreams can become reality” in the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre of the Centre.

Vitaly is so much more a typical magician, and his unbelievable talents have taken him from his native home of Belarus to perform internationally in theatres, at corporate events, and on TV and radio shows, before settling in Vancouver. Now famed as one of Canada’s most acclaimed and entertaining magicians, Vitaly has gained a reputation as an entrancing and mind-blowing performer who breaks down boundaries to let his audiences imaginations roam into the realm of the impossible. Vitaly’s infatuation with the artistic potential of magical performance began when he first watched a David Copperfield special at age 14. After wowing friends and family with his seemingly impossible illusions, Vitaly’s ability to create new and imaginative tricks led him to realize that he could conjure up a stage-show like no other magician performing today. Departing from his family home in Haifa, Israel and leaving behind a career in engineering, Vitaly took his talents to international stages, honing his uniquely artistic approach to illusion before coming to Vancouver in 2008 and amazing local audiences, leading him to be featured on CBC News, in the Vancouver Sun, and The Province. Vitaly’s highly intimate and engaging method of interacting with his audience, in addition to his celebration of the imagination and wonderment of the fantastic that he believes all humans possess, has led him to gain a reputation as one of the most captivating and enjoyable illusionists performing in the world today.
