Who is Neo, the Magician Sydney?
Neo is an independent magician & actor with a formal training in the arena of theatrical arts including the study of acting, dancing, backstage production, direction and various aspects of the magical discipline. To explore his passion and develop his skills, he toured throughout Korea performing as an illusionist, professional dancer, consultant, and director. Being exposed to a variety of settings from elite weddings to prestigious corporate events, from mingling with guests in a roving magic set-up to bringing the drama and glamour alive with the classical stage magic to a 1000+ crowd on a cruise ship, Neo’s experience at reading the room and improvising has gone hand-in-hand with meticulous planning and practice. In addition to the stellar illusion shows spanning 20+ years, Neo has also performed in films like Ladyluck (Ethan), and the Shakespearean play, A Mid Summer Night’s Dream (Oberon).
After performing in a zillion magic shows on stage, Neo is also due to perform in Jungle Book (Mowgli) for Nautanki Theatre as well as in Company (David), an American musical comedy for the Bankstown Art Centre.
Nowadays, Neo not only creates his own magic tricks and illusions but have also provided consultations to different industries in conjunction with specialized experts, including those from Marvel Cinematic Universe Studio to deliver perfectly crafted, seamlessly choreographed and mesmerizing illusions. As a token of this work, Neo was honoured to receive a nomination for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture” by the Screen Actors Guild Award (SAGA) 2022 for his work in the fantasy superhero movie Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings under the Marvel banner.
