A lecture performance about the nature of entertainment and magic. What exactly is the perspective of a sound and light show? Today technology surpasses the wildest dreams of magicians from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Instead of the dexterity of the fingers and mechanical ingenuity, the virtual and the wireless have become ways of bringing about the effect of wonder. In this informal performance Julien Maire explores a parallel story of media, probes deeper into the nature of disillusionment, and imbues with humor a profile of contemporary electronic magicians.
