"Xavier’s show is one of the best expressions of theatrical magic I have ever had to experience." - Jeff McBride
 
"I am in love with Xavier’s magic." - Asi Wind
 
"A genius. Xavier is just pure gold.  100/100 visual, astounding, creative and funny magic. You will love him! A young Master already at the very top!  But I love him more than that!"  -  Gaëtan Bloom

What will he teach?

Tape to tie  A piece of white, large tape is stuck to look like a tie on a shirt. It turns at sight into a real tie.
 
Bubble to ball - Ball to bubble  A bubble turns magically into a crystal ball and then to a bubble again.
 
Ball manipulations  Demonstration and techniques with crystal balls
 
Blowing up a balloon by the ear  A classic clown effect becomes magic with a simple device you can build.
 
Improve levitations with mime technique  Dancing cane
 
Juggling with casino chips  A variation on Pierre Brahma’s coins flourishes.
 
Also, Xavier will talk about:
 
The importance of directing magic,
How to create a routine that makes sense and not just a demonstration of tricks,
How to create your own character on stage, and
How to choose a text or a music for an act.

Who is he?

Brought up in south-western France, Xavier Mortimer packed up his suitcase to travel the world while creating shows that blend magic, circus acts, music and comedy.
 
He studied at the Music and Dance Conservatory of La Rochelle, as well as the Desmond Jones Acting School in London and the Jacques Lecoq Acting School in Paris.  At the age of 15, he created his first show, a combination of magic, mime and comedy. Thereafter, he won several prizes for Magic including 1st place at the Albano International Congress in Italy and Gold Star at the L’Eau d’Olle magic festival in France.
 
A truly complete performer, he is the recipient of several more international prizes for Magic regarding his shows. He has achieved public recognition with his show L’Ombre Orchestre (The Shadow Orchestra) created in Avignon (France) in 2006, and subsequently performed in Paris and worldwide more than 1000 times.
 
Xavier Mortimer is both the creator of and performer in visual shows that he presents internationally. What’s more, he not only composes the music for his own shows, but for other shows, as well. In 2012, he created the character Sneaky for the newest Cirque du Soleil’s show, ONE, which is currently being performed in Las Vegas.
 
Between 2013 and 2015, while performing in Vegas, Xavier has been a guest on mainstream TV shows all around the world and he is about to release his new magic show in 2016 in LAS VEGAS.
 
He was also invited to perform for FISM Italy 2015.

Very interesting, wonderful performer, very inspiring but I was hoping for more on performance and routining. I would love for Penguin to have a stage director lecture and not a magician.

Come to that I would love a Mime lecture too.

So no reflection on Xavier who is brilliant, but not as useful personally as I hoped.

That's the second time I watch Xavier's lecture, and everytime he got better. Don't get it thinking in learn new tricks, it goes far beyond... You will learn about put thngs together to build an act, how to renew classic effects (his version of dancing cane is flawless) and much more.

I really recommend it.

One of the best LIVE shows ever. Xavier held nothing back and shared great info on velcro, levitation, manipulation, droppers, topits, costuming, unique balloon magic, a brilliant billiard ball routine. Very creative and inspiring. Dan did fine followup and got the details.

Really amazing lecture!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 30th, 2016
He provides amazing thinking with the dancing cane which has made me purchase one to practice with and establish my own creativity and thinking behind this amazing illusion. He talks about incorporating music into your magic along with what he has done as far as taking dance classes to better his performance. He is the type of person you can't help but want to watch and listen to. Get this lecture you will not be disappointed

I have atteneded many lectures in my lifetime. This is by far my favorite. Xavier shows us some amazing gems, and tells us the importance behind each movement. He explains building a character and his creative process as well. This is a bank of knowledge. Do not miss this lecture! I would have gladly paid more for this!

Xavier Mortimer is Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 20th, 2019
My FAVORITE magician in magic today, very multi-talented, creative and inspiring. I've seen him live, he delivers what you believe magic should actually look like, just powerful visual magic stuff. This lecture gives you great handling tips on props, awesome tie change from tape, teaches you to make devices that you may have other innovations for, informs on materials to buy for certain things (which may save you time). I hope he does another one.

Wonderful, Not Practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2016
As expected, Xavier performances, and the behind the scenes look he gave to them were excellent. His advice on perfecting performances, was also very good. None of his actual material, however, is practical for the average worker.
