MAGIC AT THE FRINGE

Stirling Times - - Street Watch -

PIERRE Ul­ric is bring­ing some of his magic back to Fringe World.

The Perth ma­gi­cian is per­form­ing shows at the fes­ti­val dur­ing Jan­uary and Feb­ru­ary.

Ul­ric will per­form kid-friendly show A Fab­u­lous Tele­por­ta­tion Ex­per­i­ment at El­iz­a­beth Quay and the Red Room at Lit­tle Crea­tures Loft.

He will per­form the more adult-ori­ented Con­fes­sions of a Ma­gi­cian Down­stairs at the Maj.

He said ma­gi­cians should be able to per­form for dif­fer­ent au­di­ences.

“I love per­form­ing for kids and reach­ing them in a cre­ative way,” he said.

“Af­ter per­form­ing my show Fun­tas­tico last year, which in­volved more sto­ry­telling, I wanted to per­form some­thing with more sci­ence be­cause that’s my back­ground.

“My adult show last year in­volved more ex­po­si­tion but this year it’s more dead­pan com­edy and sketches, as well as an­swer­ing some typ­i­cal ques­tions I get as a ma­gi­cian but us­ing magic to re­spond.”

Ul­ric said he was pleased with his de­ci­sion to stop work­ing as an en­vi­ron­men­tal con­sul­tant and fo­cus full time on his magic.

“It’s given me the chance to work from home and fi­nalise tech­ni­cal el­e­ments and to prac­tice more,” he said.
