'Today Zurbano's magic act is about taking back power, exerting that power over her audience, and owning the sexual overtones...'

EndTimes Productions Presents

Maritess Queen of Magic

at EndTimes Underground @the Gene Frankel Theatre

July 11th, July 25th, August 8th & August 22nd 2008

New York – EndTimes Productions, purveyors of the macabre and spectacular, are proud to inaugurate their new Late Nights Underground Series with the Queen of Magic: Maritess and DynamiQ Faction.

From the suburbs of Chicago, to Lisbon, Portugal, the career of Maritess Zurbano has taken her across the world and back, literally. She has performed for heads of state, royalty, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and magic enthusiasts across five continents. Ms. Zurbano is one of few renowned professional female magicians worldwide, having competed at the Federacion Internationale Des Societe (a magical rendition of the Olympics) in 2000. The first Asian female practitioner of mentalism (an ancient performance art that utilizes the power of the human mind to perform feats that challenge the tenets of physics and defy common logic), Ms. Zurbano bends perceptions of women in magic as gracefully as she does forks of stainless steel. Her sense of humor, inventive sleight of hand, and skill as an empath generate experiences for audiences that give credence to the notion that anything is possible.

DynamiQ Faction is also on the evening’s roster, an assembly of dancers (based in Queens) who inspire their audiences with their ability to embrace the spirit of dance in a contemporary fusion of hip hop, modern dance, street jazz and funk. This year marks their premiere; DynamiQ Faction has already garnered a reputation for their champion mentality and dedication to establishing a positive vibe within the dance community. The night promises to provide a rare and rewarding opportunity for audiences this summer.

The illustrious Ruby Khan (film credits include Spartacus, Our Dancing Daughters, and Cavalcade of 1949) is delighted to host.
