FANS of magic are in for a treat when one of the most exciting talents to emerge on the scene in recent years brings his new show combining high-energy illusion and dance to Monmouth’s Savoy Theatre.
Magical Bones wowed the nation in the Britain’s Got Talent 2020 final and he’s gone on to make numerous TV appearances in the UK and America. Starting out as a professional hip-hop dancer, Richard Essien was given the nickname ‘Bones’ because of his hard-hitting dance style.
A super skilled break-dancer and a gifted showman, Bones has worked with some of the biggest artists in the music industry such as Madonna and Alicia Keys, and is the featured dancer in the music video of Mint Royals’ No 1 smash hit single, Singing In the Rain.
Now focusing on his career as a magician, Bones’ uniqueness resides in his ability to effectively fuse mind-blowing magic with street-dance culture, music &Fr lifestyle.
One of the Britain’s Got Talent’s judges described his performance as the ‘best-presented magic act I’ve ever seen!’
Among other TV credits are the BAFTA awards (BBC1), Penn & Teller Fool Us (US network- The CW), Around the World in 80 Tricks (Amazon), Pure Magic (BBC) and This Morning (ITV).
Christmas 2022 will see him feature in ITV’s major festival special The Ultimate Magician.
Bones’ debut solo show Black Magic sold-out residencies at both London’s Southbank Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and went on to play to packed houses across the UK.
Second show Soulful Magic premiered at Fringe 2022 and is going on tour next year, with a date at the Savoy on Friday, March 3.
