KNIGHT of ILLUSIONS

“Knight of Illusions” is a one-of-a-kind produced to entertain an exclusive audience. It was founded by entrepreneur Yasas Gunaratne as a stage name which later pivoted to a brand. The first “Knight of Illusions” was held in 2001 and then in 2003 at Trinity College Hall, Kandy, Sri Lanka for a public audience.

“Knight of Illusions” features a great combination of different types of Magic from mind-blowing Illusions, Comedy, Close-Up, Mind Reading, etc… featuring a show similar to what one would witness in the entertaining city of Las Vegas, USA. The show is guaranteed to leave the audience baffled making them wonder if Magic really exists.
