YOU WON’T BELIEVE THESE TWO
WHAT do you get when you bring two 36-year-olds with a love of magic together? You get your brain fried.
East Victoria Park’s Pierre Elric has joined with Robbie T to create Beyond Belief which will show at this year’s Fringe Festival.
The show is a mixture of traditional magic and mentalist features interweaved with whimsical, theatrical pieces .
Elric said that several of the effects being performed were rare and difficult.
“Some demonstrations will be quite surreal, others mystifying and some purely unsettling,” he said.
“There are also several moments of strong comedy incorporated in the act. Audiences should expect to be amazed, amused and challenged as they are guided through a journey of discovery into body and mind, with a few subjects being taboo.”
Elric said the audience would experience live demonstrations of psychic phenomena, hypnosis, telekinesis, virtual hallucinations and mind-control.
The act investigates how the human mind could be deceived and manipulated and how with a bit of help it follows irrational paths, rather than finding the real explanation.
The two magicians had been exchanging ideas for several years before getting together at Fringe World 2013 and have now carried on their project as partnering magicians.
“On a good night, one can get a really good buzz out of just walking the Fringe locations,” Elric said.
Local magicians and illusionists Robbie T and Pierre Elric perform their show BeyondBelief at Fringe Festival until February 19.
