Shawn Farquhar in the Agassiz Harrison Observer

From the Agassiz Harrison Observer:
Full of confusion and illusion, Shawn Farquhar’s Cabaret of Wonders is back for its last installment of the season — and with an international roster of magicians, it might be the most phenomenal performance yet! On Apr. 21 Shawn Farquhar will once again be perplexing audiences at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, this time with a little help from England and Germany.

Described by Farquhar as “one of the finest magicians in the world,” Axel Hecklau is making the trek from Berlin, Germany to Chilliwack, and he’s bringing his magic along with him. With over 30 years of experience perfecting his skills and performances in nearly 50 cities across the globe, Hecklau has built a reputation as one of the top magicians, not only in Germany but world-wide.

Montreal: Axel Hecklau lecture

If you can't make it to the Ring 17 event, you can catch the Axel Hecklau lecture in Montreal.

From the Montreal Magic Jam:
Monday April 3rd

Axel Hecklau is one of the most creative magic minds of Germany. He has lectured more than 200 times in more than 15 countries worldwide (including at FFFF, the Magic Castle and at FISM) and now he’s coming to Montreal. Axel will be presenting his latest creations and improved effects for stage, parlour and close-up situations, including:
  • Newsflash 2.0: This is the newspaper tear on steroids. He’s taken an old chestnut and taken it to a whole other level. Gene Anderson calls this “Absolutely brilliant”
  • Just a Cup: A chop cup routine that isn’t. Axel’s diabolical chop cup routine doesn’t even use a chop cup! So no banging necessary, it can be done completely surrounded, is completely examinable and many phases can be performed right in the spectator’s hand.
  • Destiny – it´s your choice: A stand-up piece that starts off as prediction and ends up as something far more magical. Packs small but plays very big. Very visual, perfect for parlour or stage.
  • Two-Fusion : Axel Hecklau has taken the T & R card to a new practical, visual and emotional level. If you like Anniversary Waltz, you’ll LOVE this.
So please come join us on Monday April 3rd at the Mainline Gallery (just a block south of the Mainline Theatre) to watch one of Germany’s finest magicians and you’ll quickly see why Axel is FISM Europe’s 2017 Champion of Parlour Magic.
