Biography of ROXANNE


Roxanne started to perform magic when she was a little child. Her grandmother gave her a historical magic set as a present and she prepared her first little show for her friends in Kindergarden, her relatives and friends of her family.


At the age of 13, she stopped magic for a little while and concentrated on theatre, acting and singing.


In the Musical „Metropol" she performed her first illusions. This restarted her magic career. In a team with Topas, Nils Benett, Eberhard Riese, and some other German magicians she started to create her solo act „Rendezvous im Spinnennetz" (‘Rendezvous in the Spiderweb'). With this act she won several awards, e.g. first prize in the first lady magic competition 1996 in Freyburg, Germany and some awards at international competitions in Europe, e.g. two second prices at the Belgian national competition in Brussels 2000 and at the Dutch national competition in Amsterdam 2000. She performed her act in TV shows such as the Saturday evening show named „Geld oder Liebe" on German national TV and the TV Show „Einfach Zauberhaft". This was followed by international engagements in the U. S. A., Austria, India and France. She teamed up with Topas to perform grand illusions and has been touring around Germany together with him in the full evening show productions „Magic and More" and „Magic Affairs" since 1996.


After finishing her education as a teacher she became a professional magician in fall of 1999.
In 2000 Roxanne won several international awards, such as 3rd price General Magic at the FISM World Championships of Magic in Lissabon and the „Prix Jury Junior de Radio Monte Carlo" at the Monte Carlo Magic Stars Festival.


In 2001 the „Kunststiftung Baden-Württemberg" (sponsorship for the arts) officially supported the artistic achievements of Roxanne.
Her solo-act and two illusion acts with Topas were broadcasted in the French TV1-Show „Toute la Magie du Monde".


In Spring 2001 she toured throughout India with Topas for the „German-Indian Festival" and performed several acts in Chennai, Patna, Kolkata and Mumbai.
Roxanne won at the 25th World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas the „SARMOTI-Award" (SARMOTI: Siegfried And Roy Masters Of The Impossible) which was given to her by Siegfried and Roy. After that she performed at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.


Together with Topas she received the "Milbourne Christopher Award" as Illusionist of the year 2004.
In the early fall of 2008 Roxanne was awarded the World Magic Award in Los Angeles for "the best female cabaret act".
On November 27th 2008 the new show "SURPRISE" of Topas and Roxanne had its opening night and continued to go on a successful tour through Germany.
