Magic from the fringe
Victoria Park resident Pierre Ulric is ready to bring his brand of magic to the Fringe World Festival during a series of performances.
WHETHER it’s bending spoons or controlling people’s minds, Pierre Ulrich likes to add some magic to his shows.
The Victoria Park resident and magician is holding a number of shows around Perth as part of the Fringe World Festival.
“I’m obsessed by metal bending, especially in other people’s hands as I create hallucinations,” he said.
“I also like mind control and making people do things – nothing dangerous – as they relax and let their imaginations take over.
“I’ve been doing magic since I was 10, I was like many young kids but I stuck to it as an adult.
“I was a pretty shy kid but I got a kick out of the attention and then it turned into an intellectual pursuit and an exploration of the human mind.
“It’s about emotions and creating an illogical disconnect in people’s minds for one second or forever.”
Ulrich will perform his show Funtastico at the Noodle Palace and the Rottnest Island Hall as well as Mysteries at the Maj at His Majesty’s Theatre.
“Funtastico is more for families but adults will enjoy it, it will involve strong magic with lots of visual aspects and audience participation,” he said.
Tickets to the shows can be purchased at https://www. fringeworld.com.au/.
Pierre Ulric enjoys performing a number of styles of magic, whether it is sleight of hand or controlling people's minds.
