A little magic for your festival
Magicians are not terribly uncommon. We see them on TV, we see them at events, they all kind of blend together into one. Masato Moja, however, isn’t any old magician. His performance style is more akin to an avant-garde vaudevillian clown who also happens to perform magic than simply a magician full stop. His set involves card magic and slight of hand, yes. But also balloon swallowing, animated toy pigeons and floating umbrellas. It is the sort of act where the performance itself is just as impressive, if not more-so, than the magic itself.
He had planned to be posted up in the forest walkway between the White and Green stages throughout the duration of the festival, but rain cancelled most of his scheduled appearances. If the weather holds today please take my advice… find him, enjoy him and then pay him well. He is a busker after all, and the weekend’s weather hasn’t been kind to them. Help make their Fuji Rock experience as valuable as they make ours.
