Le point de départ

Paris Festival

The incentive for the FFAP to organize regional competitions echoes in the spirit of Alexandre Laigneau and Vincent Angel. And why not in Ile-de-France & nbsp; This is how the two friends phosphor and imagine an event including a regional competition, but also conferences, galas, etc. The idea was born.

Happy coincidence, the city of Ablis has a new cultural space (Etincelles), looking for a show to start the activity. Following several meetings with the mayor, Alexandre and Vincent propose a complete project (and not just a magic show). The response of the town hall is positive and The Heir of Illusion can be born!

The circle of motivated people is growing, and the Magic Circle of Seine et Marne (CMS) decides at the first request to support the festival and in particular to manage the regional competition.
