Shreeyash Palshikar, "not your everyday abracadabra man" (-The Times of India) teams up with Sean Padrigh and Indian Princess Maya to present ancient Indian mysteries in a new show "sure to charm audiences as well as snakes" (-Chicago Weekly News). Shreeyash, a nephew of the Indian magician Shantikumar Palshikar, performs worldwide. His current show includes the yogic bed of nails and the devil sticks that Teller (of Penn & Teller) says he handles "like a demon straight from hell!"

Come on down November 16th at 8:00 pm to the Ludlow Theatre!!

SEPTEMBER 2012 SOLD OUT IN CONNECTICUT-- NEW HAVEN — Give Shreeyash Palshikar a call before a show and you might catch him sharpening his knives or, perhaps, cleaning his needles. Go to a show and you’ll catch him juggling those knives or, perhaps, swallowing those needles.

Palshikar performs jadoo, traditional Indian magic, which he said differs greatly from Western magic in some ways.

Indian magic, he said, is more stunt-based, as opposed to using sleight-of-hand to effect an illusion. In much of Indian magic, there is no illusion. When Palshikar lies down on a bed of nails or juggles Gurka knives or swallows a needle, those are real nails, knives and needles. No tricks, just training.

“A lot of Western magic is based on card tricks, you know, parlor magic,” he said. Indian magic, however, can be “very dangerous and very uncomfortable for the performer.”
