Simon Painter @theillusionistslive is the creative mind behind the biggest magic shows in the world, The Illusionists, Circus 1903, Le Noir, and Adrenaline. In this interview we explore ways in which we can find the balance between being good creatively and making sure that we are making money with our projects.
We also talk about the importance of, on the one hand, following our dreams and on the other hand, to always keep on doing and trying many different things because what really matters in the entertainment industry is our experience.
Simon is the executive producer and creative director of The Works Entertainment which is one of the most successful live entertainment companies in the world, in charge of first class entertainment in over 400 cities and 40 countries.
Simon started his artistic career as a fiddle player for the Irish dance company Spirit of the Dance. After working closely with the show’s producer, he soon became interested in producing big shows himself and had his first chance with a dance company in South Africa, which came with many challenges, as he would later find out.
Above all, Simon decided to take risks and face chaos in different ways. Many lessons followed and learning from experience he has now achieved what he had envisioned with extraordinary success.
