Entertainer and creator, Vincent Hedan developed his own style, creating shows with his original illusions, and performing his magic everywhere in France since 2000. Being fluent in English, he also performed in America, Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, Italy, Luxembourg and South Korea. A member of 4F since 2011, he won the 1st Prize in Mentalism at the 2008 French Magic Championship.
The first half of this two-hour lecture is about card magic, illustrated by various effects: easy to do, with big impact and maximum involvement of the audience.
The second half puts cards aside and focuses on effects that can be performed either as close-up or stage magic. With original, simple and direct methods, Vincent presents unusual effects. Wine tasting, pseudo memory, and his ultimate Babel book test.
“Vincent creates devilishly clever contemporary material that will fool and entertain even the most cynical audience member. With a keen sense of narrative, premise and plot his material is always intriguing, mysterious and magical. His methods are elegant, sophisticated and multilayered. I believe Vincent will ascend to the very highest levels within magic. Watch, listen and learn all you can from a bright star of the future.” Luke Jermay
