This superb double set DVD of Rene Lavand’s London performances – including his London lectures (1992 & 2009), One Man Show at the Bridewell Theatre and interview with Matt Field at the 2009 International Magic Convention.
Review by Martin MacMillan –
“I look around – no need to hide my tears, the entire audience are standing and applauding, tears in their eyes! A forum full of grown men and women, openly weeping at the finale of a mere magic show. But this is no ordinary magic show, this is no ordinary magician, this is René Lavand and it’s his ‘One Man Show’ and such is the emotion in this performance. The audience are focused on him throughout, watching every move, engrossed in every pause – René plays them like an expert puppeteer, building to a crescendo with a spontaneous ovation, eighty minutes have flown past and this is a memorable show that will live with me forever.
So, for a magical treat – when you have 80 minutes to spare, sit back, relax and watch this show to experience something truly special, but be sure to have your tissues at the ready! This incredible show is on the 2nd disc of this set. There are also excerpts from René’s London lecture of 1992, plus the full London lecture from 2009 containing performance and explanation of :
- ‘Why do the colours alternate on their own’
- ‘Pre-arranged deck’
- ‘3 Breadcrumbs’
Plus performances of ‘3 Card Monte’ ‘Poker Bagatella (the Greek), ‘The History of Cumanes’ and an interview conducted by Matthew Field.
But this DVD set is more than just lectures or tricks, this is by a unique performer who gets real emotion into his magic. Study these DVDs and use the information they contain to take your own magic to a whole new level. I shall close by borrowing some appropriate words from Juan Tamariz in his intro to Magic from the Soul, “Thank you, René, thank you, thank you, thank you…”.” Martin MacMillan – November 2010Disc 1
