What will he teach?

Vanishing biscuit : This is Pierric’s opening trick that he uses in corporate and theater shows. From an old clown gag, this trick is simple to do, short and a great way to state the style of the show that’s going to follow.

Card production : This production has always been a favourite of Pierric's repertoire. He has developed thoughout the years a lot of finesses, techniques and thinking around this classical discipline.

Pierric’s shuttle pass : This new coin move and its different applications will be taught in the context of a three coin vanish.

Homage to Paul Le Paul: An adaptation of three card tricks from LePaul classic book

The Trapdoor : This is the first trick Pierric invented and which got him first place in the close-up category at the French Championship and at the International Brotherhood of magicians in Bruxelles in 1997 at age 16.

Pierric will also talk about topitting, sleeving, comedy, creativity and his experience at FISM.

I love that we got to listen to classical music as part of this lecture. Too often as magicians, we ignore aspects of real life, music and nature that can apply to magic. More importantly, it's the dynamics of the performance, and how the pieces fit together to make the entire act.

Pierric shared some of his brilliant insights, handlings, and subleties on card manipulation, coin manipulation, and showmanship. I felt he was very sincere and humble, and I enjoyed seeing his magic. I enjoyed hearing his reasoning for doing it like that. I like that he is obviously a clever person who analyzes his magic and asks: "Why?"

I enjoyed this lecture, and I've learned so much from Pierric. He has helped me to refine my magic.

Pierric has a very unique style, and his thinking and creative process is incredible. His handling of different sleights is incredibly smooth and natural. He puts quite a lot of thought into his routines that create a very clear and magical effect in the eyes of the audience. I had never heard of Pierric before this lecture, but I can now say that he is one of my new favorite magicians.
