® Celine Gaudin


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 comedy, Alexis Michalik, the talented author of Edmond, combines lightness, depth and wonder to question the magic of art in our lives.

Le Cercle des illusionnistes was awarded three Molières in 2014 - the greatest recognition for theatre in France.

Robert-Houdin is considered as "The father of the magic". He was a watchmaker, magician and illusionist. He took magic from being a pastime for the lower classes performed at fairs, to an art performed in theatre. He opened the Robert-Houdin Theatre in Paris in 1845.

Georges MELIES


Georges Méliès is considered to be one of the main creators of the first film effects, including overprints, fades, magnifications and shrinks of characters. He was an illusionist, actor, film director. In 1888 he bought the Robert-Houdin Theatre.

Artistic vision

The idea with this play is to bring you into a dream with eyes wide open.

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 intoxicate 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.

Why now?

Questioning fate seems appropriate in our time. What can dreamers, illusionists, magicians, poets, entertainers bring us? Would they be able to open other paths in this changing world?

This journey beyond reality, beyond time, opens doors to an infinity of possibilities.

This play takes us into a captivating waltz without beginning or end. It invites us to turn and turn like the earth which turns on itself and around the sun. It invites us to enter the dance and believe!

Organiser Perth French Theatre

Organiser of Le Cercle des illusionnistes - French play with English surtitles

PFT targets well being through cultural and linguistic development using the medium of theatre. We are passionate about sharing our wonderful French culture. We love creating events which inspire us and touch the hearts. We are aware it can be hard for Francophone children and adults to stay connected to their language and culture. We know, through experience that learning a language is demanding, particularly when you don’t have the opportunity to practice in a real environment.  That’s why we established PFT.
