IBM British Ring Convention 2009 – Southport – David and Dania in conversation with John Pye

September 26th, 2009 by Richard Morrell

Through a series of audience submitted questions John asked the couple about their life, both professional and personal. Dania talked about her up-bringing as part of the Moscow State Circus, and learning the Hula-Hoop act that is to be on tonights gala show. They talked about why they chose magic, as when they got married they wanted a job they could do together.

They then talked about the various TV shows they had appeared on, the Tonight Show and Oprah over in the US and over here more recently the Paul OGrady show and Tonights the Night with John Barrowman.

They hinted that they will have a new ten-minute spot ready in November, based on music from the 1960s and 1970s and will see Dania making at least 12 different changes. Mention was made of their full evening show, and that they have just bought the rights to Marvin Roys second act and incorporated all the jewellery into their show.

Mention was made of lectures and workshops, they carried out their first workshop at the IBM in the US and plan to do more, and they are booked to do a workshop and lecture for Blackpool 2010.

Dania talked about how the costumes are made, not in the US for fear of copying, but in Russia by professional seamstresses to their exacting standards. They are about to go on tour with a Symphony Orchestra in Pop Goes the Magic. Finally David mentioned their appearances on Americas Got Talent and the disagreements with Pierce Morgan, that were purely for ratings.

A great insight into this spectacular act, that will be on the bill tonight, stay tuned for a full report.
