World famous Quick Change artists Sos & Victoria Petrosyan performing their renowned "International Quick Change Show" of lightning-fast changes and hip dance moves. This is sure a spectacular event! Sos and Victoria have appeared in acclaimed international shows and their performance is nothing short of breathtaking. Their modern interpretation of the traditional art has won them many prizes at international magic competitions.
"It sounds like a model's dream come true: being able to slip effortlessly into one glamorous outfit after another in seconds. Quick Change artists Sos & Victoria Petrosyan have updated the traditional performance art of Transformation by combining fashion, stage-craft and sleight of hands in a display that has dazzled audiences the world over." Styled as "The New Generation of Quick Change", the Petrosyans revitalised the form by pumping it up with fashion, modern dance moves and upbeat music. Their shows feature an assortment of couture gowns fitted with Quick Change devices. Although some artists are keen to show as many characters as possible, quantity does not interest the Petrosyns. "We don't want to just show how many changes of costumes we can do. We want to tell a story with a combination of movement, dance and magic tricks. It's important to make it interesting for the public," says Sos Petrosyan, a former ballet dancer. The Petrosyans' mastery of the craft is as much in their wardrobe techniques as their agility and timing. The pair spends hundreds of hours adjusting their costumes to ensure the switches are super smooth. "I have to make sure it looks good," Sos Petrosyan says. "We pay attention to the details. A thousand small things have to be changes so they all work well in sequence." Each costume is discarded after six to seven month to keep their presentation fresh. With the high turnover of costumes, the Petrosyans have become proficient designers and tailors. Sos and Victoria have designed and manufactured quick change outfits for special corporate clients to suit their individual needs. Furthermore they have produced full quick change acts (incl. costumes, music, styling and choreography). "We're always shopping for good fabrics… we travel all over the world with sewing machine," Victoria Petrosyan says. Now based in Germany, the duo Petrosyans have performed in more than 38 countries. When they're not performing, they attend prestigious magic festivals and competitions. The pair has won top prizes at events such as Paris Magic Festival, International Festival in Budapest, Stage Competition in Moscow and more. They appeared at the number 1 Gala Show in the World Championship of Magic (FISM-2006 in Sweden). Such crises demand quick wits and improvisation. But it takes more than that to stay in the business, he says. "You have to love it. If you don't and only treat it as a job, it won't get you anywhere. Sos and Victoria have taken the Art of Quick Change to an all new height. Sos was born in Yerevan, Armenia; he learned juggling and Quick Change from his father (nowadays he is the General Director of the Armenian State Circus, Doctor-Professor of Art). "Quick Change is about doing everything in sequence and it's the interesting part of magic," Sos says. Victoria Petrosyan was born in Moscow, Russia. Her remarkable work is now paid worthy tribute all over the world! During her elegant romp the vivacious Victoria transforms from one elegant look to the next, stunning the audience with unbelievable speed! At one moment she dances in a sexy day dress then, in the wink of an eye, she stands in an elegant evening gown! Europe's best designers have created for them a literal "fashion line" of divine costumes that appear to be nothing less than "haute couture" in complete disguise of the Quick-Change mechanisms. The future is very bright for this handsome couple. Their resume already boasts the highest achievements that any performer could hope to attain. The growing collection of world class artists with whom they have graced the stage is a literal "who's who" list of international show business today. Their current schedule has them appearing on the world's most prestigious stages and thrilling audiences in nearly every entertainment capital. A Quick Change act is one of the most expensive and most impressive illusion effects that there is. Sos and Victoria live for Quick Change. "They inspired me to do always something new with the genre." He was determined to create a total Quick Change experience complete with choreography, lighting and special effects. It's not just an act. Sos made his debut as a Quick Change artist in 1991. Five years later, his act became a double act when he met Victoria and the couple fell in love.
To be sure, there is only one thing about Sos and Victoria Petrosyan that does not change quickly… and that is their ability to be the absolute best at what they do!!! REFERENCE
