Paris: Luc Langevin in 2019

From the June 28th article "Le magicien Luc Langevin de retour avec un Nouveau Spectacle en mars 2019" in Stephane larue as translated by Google:
After his triumph at the CASINO DE PARIS in 2016 and 2017, LUC LANGEVIN returns to the stage with his new show NOW DEMAIN.

Luc Langevin received the medal of the National Assembly

Congratulations Luc!


From the May 30th, 2018 article, "Luc Langevin était à l’Assemblée nationale mercredi, mais n’a pas fait disparaître le premier ministre...," by Marie-Renee Grondin in le Journal de Quebec (as translated by Google translate):
Rest assured! The illusionist Luc Langevin was visiting the National Assembly Wednesday, but it was not to remove the Prime Minister Philippe Couillard ...

Although this may have been a scenario dreamed up by some voters (who will have the power to make it disappear themselves, if that is their wish, next October), the famous conjurer was in parliament to receive a prestigious distinction.

He received the medal of the National Assembly, from the hands of Geneviève Guilbault, the member for Louis-Hébert who represents the riding where he grew up.

Reviews: Luc Langevin's "Now tomorrow"

From the April 12th article "Luc Langevin still spectacular" by Sandra Godin in le Journal de Quebec, translated by Google:

Amazement and incomprehension: two feelings that will invade you constantly during this second show of Luc Langevin, who concocted us ten new spectacular illusions, between telepathy, teleportation and levitation.

The public remained speechless after the illusionist had teleported a spectator locked in a safe, at the end of the first media of Now tomorrow , which was held Thursday at Albert-Rousseau Hall. It was just before he levitated up the stage.

The master of illusion retains its title with numbers that combine mathematics, science, technology, projections and optical illusions, at the end as fascinating as each other.

From the April 13th article "Luc Langevin: The magic of illusions" by Virginie Landry in Journal Metro, translated by Google:
"Everyone knows that magic does not exist." It is on this statement that Luc Langevin begins his new book, The science of illusion , in which he decrypts his art through scientific concepts. But we have a hard time believing that there is not an ounce of magic in what he does ...

"In my wildest dreams, I was hoping to go there, but I did not expect to get there in such a short time," says the magician, who is celebrating his 10-year career this year. In the last decade, Luc Langevin has animated As Magic , At the Limits of Illusion , Defying Magic , as well as several specials with local artists and documentaries. He also put on his first indoor show and released three board games. Phew. "When I look at all this, I think I was productive!" He laughs. (And he wants us to believe that there is no magic in there? Anyway ...)

In 2018, question of being as busy as in recent years, the magician launches a second show indoors, Now tomorrow , and a first book. The purpose of this book? "I wanted to lift the veil on some physical phenomena that I use. I found that these methods or phenomena were almost more interesting than the tricks I make with them. "In doing so, Luc Langevin wanted to give magic its nobility so that people understand that" it's not just clowning. to entertain children "is an art.

From the April 13th article "Luc Langevin: believe in the impossible" by Sandra Godin in le Soleil, translated by Google:
In the Tomorrow Today program, Luc Langevin notes that his way of practicing his job as a "creator of illusions" has changed since his first show: "My scientific knowledge still inspires my illusions, but I learned that to reach the the brain of the public, sometimes you have to go through the heart. "

And that's exactly what he's doing with this new show: his numbers are still as surprising and spectacular as they are ... human and sincere, and tell a story. Including that of this extremely shy boy that was the little Luc Langevin, for whom magic was a lifesaver ...

And although the magical numbers of the illusionist are (of course) the nerve of the war of this evening staged by René-Richard Cyr, we must say that the success of the company is very much based on the likeable and endearing personality of Luc Langevin, and the constant dialogue he sets up with his audience.

Luc Langevin in le Journal de Montréal

From the March 10th article "La magie m’a apporté tout ce qu’il y a de bon dans ma vie" by Bruno Lapointe in le Journal de Montréal, as translated by Google:

"It's very long to create illusions, test them, tweak them ... I put two years, one full-time. And all this time, I told myself that I must absolutely deliver the material. I do not have a choice, "he reveals.

To achieve this, the illusionist has sought the help of director René Richard Cyr, to enhance the visual coating of the tour. His first and only choice for this role. But he had to work hard to convince the man of theater to join this project, something that was far from being won in advance.

« Mon premier spectacle m’avait permis de partager avec le public mon passé; comment j’étais devenu l’illusionniste que je suis. Avec ce deuxième spectacle, on se retrouve MAINTENANT et on regarde vers DEMAIN. Après le succès que j’ai connu ces dernières années, je me suis demandé "Qu’est-ce qu’on fait lorsqu’on a réalisé son rêve d’enfance et qu’on a encore la vie devant soi ? Maintenant qu’on a tout ce qu’on a toujours désiré, qu’est-ce qu’on fait demain ? »  Dans le spectacle Maintenant Demain, à travers de nouvelles illusions qui mystifient, font rires et émerveillent plus que jamais, j’ai décidé de raconter ma réponse au public ".

Luc Langevin in "le fil"

From the article "These teachers who change lives" by Matthieu Dessureault in le fil, the newspaper of Laval university, translated by Google:
On stage as on television, Luc Langevin knows how to amaze his audience with breathtaking magic numbers. Before being the talented illusionist we know, he completed a Bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics and a Master's degree in Optics, as well as a PhD in Biophotonics. If he left school to devote himself to his job, this passage to the University will not be vain, far from it.

Already at the time, he knew he was going towards magic. Thanks to Professor Michel Piché, he learned to master a technology that would prove very useful to invent his tricks: that of lasers. "I was very surprised that Mr. Piché agrees to frame me in my graduate studies. When I asked him, he already had about twenty students under his responsibility. I gave him my CV, where it was indicated that I wanted to become a magician. It seems that it piqued his curiosity! "Recalls laughing Luc Langevin.

A scientist who wants to become a magician, the professor admits that it is not commonplace. Nevertheless, he did not hesitate a second to take him under his wing. "I was looking for a good student for my work and Luc Langevin was clearly one. Magic requires technical skill and a good understanding of optics since the illusion comes from manipulating brain mechanisms with images. He was a good candidate to help me develop new approaches in my field of research, "says the one who has been teaching at the University since 1984.

McCord Museum: Magic, music, and dance

From Perfect Magic:
If you haven’t been to the McCord Museum this summer it’s worth going to. Not your usual museum exhibition. It’s called ILLUSIONS – The Art of Magic and Luc Langevin is the ambassador of the exhibit. It’s the Allan Slaight collection, which was acquired by the McCord with the help of the Emmanuelle Gattuso Foundation.  A tip of the Top Hat to the people who designed it.. Phil and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

We were invited by magician Dr. Joe Culpepper, magician, scholar, consultant and friend and customer of Perfect Magic. Before the guided tour, we were treated to a magic show, in a lovely little theatre there, given by the young students, who attended the McCord Museum Camp, Abracadabra, who were guided and taught by Joe and the counsellors. The kids did a great job and they all knew how to take a bow when the applause came.

So what’s the link between magic and music?

Luc Langevin in le Journal de Quebec

From le Journal de Quebec (as translated by Google):
"People go to see shows of humor, concerts, but have little reflex to make the gesture to buy a ticket for a show of magic. They have the image of magic for children, but it is no longer the case," he said.

Indeed, the illusionist originally from Quebec explains that magic has undergone a turning point in recent years. "Quietly, magicians all over the planet are abandoning the classic image of magic, from the man in tuxedo who has a cape and who takes a rabbit out of a hat or who saw a woman in two, he.

Luc Langevin in le Parisien

"Langevin: Creator of illusions" appears until February 4 at the Casino de Paris (IX th). Luc then then goes on tour: March 9 in Thionville, March 10 in Nancy, and March 15 in Mulhouse.


From le Parisien via Google Translate:
It is also on a screen that it appears, before leaving it to appear in flesh and bone on stage. "If your dreams seem to you inaccessible, believe me, it's just an illusion," said the physics graduate who built his show on optical effects and mathematical laws.
 
Charming and beautiful speaker, the illusionist has no trouble catching the attention of the public. With a poetic spectacle when he makes a paper bird fly by the magic of Chinese shadows, or he rides a pyramid of furniture (table, ladder, coat rack ...) that seems then suspended in the air.

From le Parisien as written:
C'est d'ailleurs sur un écran qu'il apparaît, avant d'en sortir pour apparaître en chair et en os sur scène. « Si vos rêves vous semblent inaccessibles, croyez-moi, ce n'est qu'une illusion », annonce ce diplômé de physique qui a construit son show sur les effets d'optique et les lois mathématiques.

Charmeur et beau parleur, l'illusionniste n'a aucun mal à capter l'attention du public. Avec un spectacle poétique quand il fait voler un oiseau de papier par la magie des ombres chinoises, ou qu'il monte une pyramide de meubles (table, échelle, portemanteau...) qui semble alors suspendue dans les airs.

Luc Langevin: if teleportation existed

Translated from ICI.TOU.TV:
If teleportation became reality, our world as we know it today would not exist or would be completely transformed. If we could teleport us home to our work, need cars or even roads ... More time wasted in traffic jams, no more orange cones ... The architecture is completely different: more doors, more stairs or elevator since our movements would be instantaneous. With the illusions Luc Langevin runs, it gives us a glimpse of the potential impacts of teleportation on our future life by using various objects of everyday life. For the final, he teleports himself visibly and gradually to its guests.
