Perth French Theatre is thrilled to be back performing in French with English surtitles: The Illusionists Circle. Only 5 performances between 16th and 18th September.

21 Actors will gather together around you to share some French culture and transport you to the world of magic and cinema!

Le Cercle des illusionnistes written by Alexis Michalik was awarded three Molières in 2014, the greatest recognition for theatre in France.

Synopsis: While the French football team play Euro 84, April’s bag is stolen from the metro by December. But the young man decides to return it to its owner! Destiny is on the move. Both will follow in the footsteps of Robert-Houdin, inventor of modern magic, and Georges Méliès, a great figure in cinema. Eras, places and passions respond strangely to each other. While life has fun playing tricks, will love triumph over illusions?

In this dizzying, award-winning comedy, Alexis Michalik, the talented author of Edmond, combines lightness, depth and wonder to question the magic of art in our lives.

The idea with this play is to bring the audience in a dream with wide open eyes. The Past and Present will have to intertwine. The actors will travel in time and space without constraints at a frantic pace. As in our memory, the comings and goings of the past will be instantaneous.
The group movements will allow us to confuse the public to let them get lost a little, the magic and the illusion will transport them into a poetic universe, where destiny is created.
