Le magicien, 2003

Still Le magicien

What the spectator is capable of seeing but also what escapes his sight depends on the magician’s skill and dexterity. A trick’s illusion of reality relies on sleight of hand. In a courtyard in the city of Tangiers, a stage for magic is delimited by some curtains. The program includes the appearance of ping-pong balls and white doves, sword eaters and an attempt to reproduce a decidedly difficult trick: The rooster’s dream.
