Young illusionist presents “Illusion on Fire” at the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre At only 19 years old, Antonio Ortuño already has a solid career paved out, with sufficient charisma and charm to enchant and entice audiences of all ages. The talented actor and illusionist has undergone many years of intensive training in the acting field, and is now bringing those talents back to his home town of Torrevieja, along with three years of self-taught magic. The show, “IIlusionismo en llamas” (Illusionism on Fire) combines thrilling drama, incredible illusions and exciting tricks with a hint of fire that are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Ortuño explained that he had a great interest in magic as a young child, but eventually grew out of it as his interests turned to other activities. However, his passion was rekindled three years ago during a poker game with a Ukrainian colleague, who demonstrated two impressive card tricks that made him want to learn more. Illusion on Fire tells the story of how the youngster’s magic talents transpired and, in his own words, is meant to “make the audience smile and send them home with a good feeling!” The show will be presented this Saturday at 9:30pm at the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre in Torrevieja, with all proceeds raised being donated to the charity...Read More
Aquopolis has special activities at a discount price on 23rd and 30th August For the past year, “Torrevieja Aquapolis” water park has been working in collaboration with AMFA “Torrevieja Solidaria” and the Department for Accessibility, to launch the initiative “All-inclusive blue leisure days”, which enables people with physical disabilities to enjoy a fun-filled day out at minimum cost, taking advantage of all of the facilities provided by the park. Torrevieja Solidaria relies on the support of a group of volunteers, who work to offer a range of fun and stimulating activities for people who suffer from varying degrees of disability. They work to adapt surroundings to meet disabled people’s needs, and allow them to integrate and enjoy leisure activities alongside other able-bodied people. AMFA explained that during the two blue leisure days, participants will be offered a variety of activities, including water volleyball, a card tournament, relaxation sessions and many more surprises that would not be possible without the help of the young volunteers. To register for a place on either of these two dates, readers should contact AMFA on 966 707 373 or 685 871 717. People with anything from a recognised minor disability will be offered a fantastic discount of 33%, with ticket entrances priced at only €6.50, while their companions (maximum 2 per person) will also benefit from a discount, paying just €8.70 each....Read More
