Olwethu Dyantyi - Young Capetonian magician
It was a Saturday (2010 August 21 to be precise) that I first heard the song "Human" performed by The Killers.
I wasn't paying attention to the lyrics (which, mondegreen-fashion, go "Are we human? Or are we hamsters?") but rather the tempo, which swept me along.
That, and the fact that on the little stage just a few feet away, Olwethu Dyantyi was performing an awesome card magic routine.
I don't use a word like "awesome" lightly. His fast-paced routine, matched to the kicking tunes, transported me far away for a moment, pure suspended disbelief. And that is awesome.
This past weekend, at a magic auction held by the Cape Town Circle of Magic (at the College of Magic), I had an opportunity to meet Olwethu and take a few pics.
Here's one to watch: "his sign is vital", indeed.
nothing more to see. please move along.
