Festival: The Magic of Christmas

A magical week awaits you at Christmas with Felix, French national magic champion. “A manipulator of all kinds of objects, midway between traditional magic and contemporary circus, Nicolas Plassard, a.k.a. Felix, is a modern-day acrobat. Between traditional magic and circus, without using devices or throwing dust in your eyes, Felix carries a whole load of know-how in his suitcases, transporting the spectator into an imaginary world of magic, juggling, mime and fire.” (Sud Ouest).

 

Felix will spend the week with us from Sunday 24 to Friday 29 December 2017, and will offer: 4 workshops to learn magic tricks, 1 demonstration of tricks and juggling, 1 magic show, balloon sculptures and 1 fire show. Free access.

In his new show, Felix transports us into his amazing world, where magic meets the circus, with many colorful and very visual numbers. On stage, the objects become alive: they multiply, light up, dance, fly away or disappear in the course of a show where Felix captivates his audience and encourages them participate!

 

Several of his original numbers have been recognized internationally and awarded prizes. Without using devices or throwing dust in your eyes, Felix offers a show which will carry you off into a world that only your imagination can limit. Magic, juggling, mime … And time stands still to let you contemplate this universe through the eyes of your childhood. A crazy and poetic cabaret, midway between traditional magic and contemporary circus. It’s very visual magic, direct and fun, with the active participation of many volunteers.
