Starting point

Paris Festival

Happy coincidence, the city of Ablis has a new cultural space (Etincelles), looking for a show to start the activity. After several meetings with the mayor, Alexandre Laigneau and Vincent Angel proposed a complete project (not only a magic show). The answer from the mayor’s office is positive and L’Héritier de l’Illusion can be born!

The circle of motivated people grows, and the Cercle Magique de Seine et Marne (CMS) decides at the first request to support the festival and in particular to manage the contest part.
