The Amazing Norvil and Josephine

Unique Magic Comedy and more...
La Belle Epoque… the words conjure up images of the Moulin Rouge, Harry Houdini, and silent films… To continue in the great tradition are The Amazing Norvil and Josephine.

In this extraordinary comedy stage magic act, one of our main magicians Christopher joins forces with one of our dancers and acrobats Desiree.
The impossible feats they perform include a woman being sawn in two, a table being made to float above the stage, and as a finale the two performers -- in spite of impossible chains, locks and confinement -- change places in mere seconds.

To compliment our performers' 15-minute world-class stage magic act, there is the distinctive twist of Desiree’s graceful aerial hoop dancing as she is suspended above the stage being serenaded by Christopher’s striking baritone singing voice.

The Amazing Norvil and Josephine, already enjoyed by thousands, are an act of spellbinding illusion that defies categorization.

Truly a magical and entertaining journey unlike any other.

Chinese Shadows

Fascinated by sleights of hand, Philippe has evolved a shadow show of great and refined elegance. Truly original, he brings a new light on the shadow show in which, usually the subjects appear already formed on the screen.

Here, they are only means of the flowing movements of his fingers.
No sound, no decoration, its total simplicity is all the more moving.

Peplum and Othello

International Act  - Videos available on request
Comics or Magicians? Clowns of Actors?
Well, Peplum and Othello are a bit of everything. They are most of all a duo of weird characters that seem to have escaped from a comic strip.
Grandiloquent and a bit pretentious, Othello treats his partner Peplum casually and subject him to weird experiments. Nonetheless, Peplum’s naivety and clumsiness make them fail every time!
Setting up a universe of weird sense of humour and mystery, they mock the cliché of the magic, creating irresistible situations.
This show, internationally renowned, implies an active participation of the audience on stage.
We laugh, we are surprised and the illusion is just perfect.

Silent Comedies

International Acts - Videos available on request 
To quote the words of Antonin Artaud, "Alongside the culture of words, there is the culture of gesture."
Our silent comedy experts, through out their different scenarios and characters, draw us delicately into a troubling, poetic universe, using a subtle blend of the real and the imaginary.

With the "Ostrich" Silent Comedy Act, we can no longer distinguish between what is real and what is a dream.

With the “Eccentric Silent Comedy of Elan” Silent Comedy Act, the artiste combines imaginative visual humour, elastically eccentric dance and movement, mask, illusion and hilarious audience participation, all performed in a delightfully frantic, animated style which has captivated audiences and continues to generate laughter wherever he perform.

The “Statue” Silent Comedy Act takes us at the borders of an imaginary Eden garden, inhabited by odd creatures, where a mysterious wind gives life to a strange two-headed statue. One after the other, the heads wake up and try to outdo each other to take possession of the stone body which finally animate and leave its base. Much more than a simple mime or magic act, the Statue is an invitation to travel, in a universe of purity, full of emotions, images and mystery.
