Montreal: David Stone Lecture

From the Montreal Magic Jam:
Monday April 22nd

[Note that this lecture will be in French, but David will do explanations in English as necessary]

After the amazing success of The Xperience Lecture tour in 2012 with over 183 lectures in 19 countries, the crazy David Stone is back!

This new lecture will provide exclusively strong magic tricks with cards, coins, and varied objects for close-up conditions just as pen, bottles, glasses…

For those who already know David, no need to say the lecture will be a real show with dozens of gags and ideas you will use for your own performances. Among the brand new tricks you will discover :
  •     Mirage : Learn how to Visually and slowly make a deck of cards vanish !
  •     Zenith : The « Card on the ceiling » effect completely revisited, safer and easier than the classic version. Finally you will get David secret version of this classic effect, a version he kept for his own performances for years. A masterpiece of close up magic !
  •     A new gimmick as powerful as «The Tool » that will allow you to perform dozen of tricks completely different. A new weapon for the close up magician who want to refresh his repertoire.

And much more ! Over 14 new effects and routines tested on real audience and ready to amaze your own spectators. David will also talk and explain how he performs in close up situation on stage for audience as large as 2.000 spectators and how to deal with this kind of situations.

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.

Montreal: Paul Vigil workshop, lecture and show

From Montreal Magic Jam:
LECTURE: Sunday March 4th at The Comedy Nest
SHOW: Tuesday March 6th at Theatre Mainline

UPDATE: Paul Vigil is also doing a workshop the evening of Saturday March 3rd.

Paul Vigil is one of the magic’s most accomplished performers. Since becoming a magician at the age of 5, Paul has gone on to become an award winning lecturer, a regular performer at The Magic Castle in LA, and the star of his own show in Las Vegas. Paul has performed all over the world and has also made numerous appearances on television, including most recently Penn and Teller’s “Fool Us!”

Paul Vigil is the author of numerous manuscripts, including his latest book “The Doors of Deception.” His first book “Classic Fantastic” has long sold out, and his new tome contains not just well-thought-out routines from his repertoire but shows how he constructs an act. It may very well sell out before he makes his way to Montreal, but he will share many of the lessons from this book with you on Sunday March 4th.

Paul Vigil’s full evening show “Magic, Mind Reading, and Mystery” is one of the most sought after, and highly reviewed shows in all of Las Vegas. He performed it in Toronto in December to a sell-out crowd and we’re happy to bring it here to Montreal for a one-night-only performance on Tuesday March 6th. The Mainline’s raked seating will ensure everybody will get the best view of the performance.
