Options for hiring a magician in Utrecht

Michel, who lives in the province of Utrecht, can be used as an illusionist for various occasions. Personal acts at a table or bigger magic tricks on stage; he delights both young and old. The humorous, interactive acts of magician Utrecht improve the atmosphere.

Between the courses of dinner or during informal drinks, Michel provides table magic, also known as walk-around magic. This magical entertainer does the most amazing things with dice, rubber bands and playing cards, but also with borrowed banknotes, wedding rings and iPhones. Your guests will be treated to a mix of classic and modern magic. After a session of the table magician, spectators are left spellbound and invariably ask, “How does he do that?”

In Michel’s central magic show, amazement and merriment alternate at high speed. This Utrecht illusionist performs a magic show – new style – full of audience participation. The assistance of several people present on stage makes this magical show an unforgettable experience. Suitable for groups of several dozen to hundreds of people. The illusion show comes into its own in a theatre hall, but can also be performed at other locations.

With customised magic, your colleagues or customers are entertained and informed in a magical way. Telling a story by means of a magic trick makes an impact and ensures that your message is better remembered. Michel likes to think along with you about how his favourite art form can be used to achieve your company’s goals. Nothing is too crazy for this artistic jack-of-all-trades.

In an age of advertising avoidance, it is difficult to get your business noticed by potential customers – especially during a trade show, where countless entrepreneurs are fighting for the attention of their intended target audience. As a trade show magician, Michel helps you enter and win the battle for visibility at the trade show venue. In a subtle and stylish, but above all effective way, he puts your company in the spotlight and creates commotion around your exhibition stand.

During the illusionism workshop, magician Michel from Utrecht does something that is controversial among professionals: explaining magic tricks. Step by step, he explains easy-to-learn magic effects. The participants in your teambuilding activity will gain insight into the psychology behind magic and rehearse some impressive tricks with cards, coins and strings.

In his role as chairman of the day, Michel leads the congress participants through the programme in an engaging manner. Serious where necessary, light-hearted where possible. He prepares the symposium thoroughly, resulting in substantive interviews with the speakers. Between business, the presenter will show a number of mysterious acts on request, in line with the theme of the day. With Michel hosting your conference, you can be sure that content and form will be balanced.

Lemon Scented Tea invited table magician Utrecht to show his skills during the NIMA Marketing Day in DeFabrique, a former factory site on the Lage Weide industrial estate. Over 20 years ago, the complex was converted into an event venue by the Van Eck family. The industrial location was frequently featured in Victor Mids’ television programme Mindf*ck. At Van der Valk Utrecht, Michel was a guest several times, including with fellow magicians Janse Heijn and Tim Horsting. That was during the 25th anniversary party of an association of pensioners.
