Do you like magic tricks? Do you believe in magic? How do you like black magic? If you answered yes to any of these questions, and if you also like horror movies, then sit back, my little otherworldly lover, it will be interesting. Meet Sacred Riana. That’s the stage name of the most unconventional illusionist I’ve ever seen.
Maria Antoinette Riana Graharani was born on July 13, 1992, in Jakarta, Indonesia. Since her childhood, the little girl idolized and admired the great David Copperfield, and such a fascination of her daughter was actively supported by her parents. It is not known for what reason, but Maria was fascinated by the dark side of magic, and began to use in her numbers the image of a teenage girl possessed by demons, as well as all kinds of dark scenery. Get it she really fantastic. By winning the Stand Up Magician contest in Indonesia, taking first place on Asia’s Got Talent, scaring the judges at America’s Got Talent, Sacred Riana immersed everyone in the audience in a restless and mystical atmosphere, and the audience at the screen made them believe they were watching a mystical thriller.
In all the numbers, Riana is dressed in a dress and white tights, and she is holding a rather ugly and unkempt doll. The illusionist does not greet or say goodbye to the audience, she just starts her show and that’s it. She doesn’t talk much and twitches as if there really is a demon inside her. Here’s an example of her performance just at America’s Got Talent in 2018.
As for her stage name Sacred Riana, she chose it with her producer in an effort to show that what she does has some relation to sacred action and magic. When performing in public, Riana adheres to her constant style, her face always covered by her hair. Riana has a habit of twitching her head and left arm when she stands or walks. While performing her magical acts, she speaks in a vibrating indistinct voice. Her face is always impassive like a mask and her face never shows any emotion. Riana is silent, even when she is the winner of the show, she says practically nothing. All in all, a very strange girl, although her friends say that in normal life she is not the same as on stage.
