With material reduced to the strict minimum, a simple cup, a ball and a pitcher, Yann Frisch plunges us into a Kafkaesque universe, where magic, object manipulation and burlesque play are at the service of millimeter writing.
The video for "Baltass", which was viewed more than 1 million times a week in the first month of its broadcast, was one of the biggest buzz of December 2012. It is the number that allowed Yann Frisch to obtain the titles of Champion of magic of France in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013, of Europe in 2011 and of the world in 2012.
In a matter of minutes, he shattered the image of magic, the certainties of some who believe that it is all in the trick. The real artistic work begins where the technicality is "forgotten", where the trick is no more than an accessory in the service of a message, a story, a scenario.
The young prodigy will also use another of his favorite instruments, the playing card, to offer us a few "close up" tricks, with the banter and humor that we know him.
