Magic Performances – Living vicariously through vintage magic

Magic Performances by

Dr. Hiroshi Sawa

Dr. Hiroshi Sawa is one of Japan’s most prolific magicians. When Dr. Sawa burst onto the magic scene back in the 1970s, he caused an international sensation.

His work with paper, seashells, ropes and especially coins, was simultaneously whimsical and astonishing. Some years ago, for private reasons, Dr. Sawa vanished from the magic world. Happily, he has resurfaced—his enthusiasm for magic not only renewed, but actually increased.

Dai Vernon was quoted once as saying Dr. Sawa is “one of the most original magicians in the world.”

    Dr. Sawa,
    I have a student, a 10 year old girl. She has an act where she produces sea shells, live gold fish and a live turtles. I would like to send you a link to her act.

    I would like to add to the act and would like to discuss some ideas with you.

    Thank you,
