Shane Gillen - magician / mentallist / premiere lecture performance at Belfast MagiCon 2016

Magician/Mentalist Shane Gillen hails from the North West of Ireland in Sligo town. He has been performing professionally for the past eight years and has taken a particular interest in the area of mentalism and stage performance. In 2014, Shane and production manager John Belling teamed up with production company Sugarglass Theatre to stage the rather ambitious 'Lapse'. The idea of Lapse was to marry magic with a theatre play that could be critically engaging and forthright. Though the project took a year to write, it was received with exceptional press and critical acclaim. Shane has since gone on to become the first magician to have his own site at the country's largest Music and Arts Festival, Electric Picnic. The site itself was called 'Shane Gillen's Magic Mush Room' and featured Shane and other magicians performing magic in a way that introduced modern day technology to close up parlour magic. 

In his lecture at Belfast Magic Con, Shane hopes to share some original material that he has created, particularly in the field of mentalism, stage character and presence...'
