PAUL VIGIL WILL BLOW YOU AWAY

"When Vigil appears, magical things really do begin to happen in his wake. Mysterious things capture the imagination and rupture the skeptical adult heart. The astonishment he creates feels as wordless and giddy and excitingly foreign as a feeling of first love.

This is magic in lavish abundance.

This is the world of Paul Vigil

His magical artistry is raw and potent – elegantly constructed, perfectly scripted and flawlessly executed. You will be fooled, badly, even when you know what’s coming next. More than that, Paul’s magic leaves you open and wounded, but in a good way – like you’re better for having experienced what many swear to be “real magic.”

Vigil is a rare breed of magician. He’s a true believer in magic – as an art form, poetic device and creative living exercise. Magic isn’t just a career or a calling for him. It is nothing less than a way of life whose fruits can be shared and enjoyed with others. In his hands, magic sleights are heavenly meditations. They are joyous ceremonies of creation.

To Paul and those who deeply feel the effects of his work, magic is not a puzzle to solve. It is a state of being to embrace. Vigil adheres to the idea of creating magical moments that last for years or even a lifetime.

The result is something elegant and sophisticated – a script peppered with vicious linguistic ploys, intuitive gambits and invisible knuckle-busting sleights which separate the men from the boys. These seeds of wonder – these beginnings or a miracle – are coddled, cradled and nurtured by a man whom many consider to be magic’s best-kept secret.

By blending past and present, chemistry and psychology, linguistics and sleight of hand, Vigil has assembled a profoundly powerful toolkit for producing magical experiences for others, experiences that wildly transcend simple card and coin tricks. Paul Vigil’s magical art form originates from the soul, and that is where it is felt ..." - jay fenster

Paul Vigil will present his full evening show at IMX in what is guaranteed to be a truly unmissable experience.

And with over 20+ of the finest performers from across the world joining Paul for 3 days of nothing but magic - IMX is going to be a feast for the senses.

Thanks to John for sending me the below.

http://www.linkingpage.com/magicnewsfeed......gil.html

A great interview with Paul Vigil by Dodd Vickers. EVERYONE who's had the opportunity of seeing Paul live only but raves. Can't wait ...

"Paul Vigil has often been referred to as "the best close-up magician in Las Vegas". He's a free thinker and an explorer of the mind of both the performer and the spectator. Above all else he's a man who loves the art of magic. With an intensity that engages the most cynical of audiences, Paul has become a "Must see!" in a city known for it's ruthlessness towards performers. "I'm here to be the best--not only at what I do, but at what can be done--period. I want my audience to experience something they've never experienced ever before. I want them to feel something they've never felt before. I want my audiences to believe something they've never believed before; until they walk away from my show." I our interview we explore why magic is so important to him and what secret project he's working on in Las Vegas."

An evening with a true legend of magic ...

David Berglas is a performer who needs no introduction. He is a legendary man of mystery whose exploits are unmatched in the history of modern magic. David joins us as our special guest via live video conference at IMX 2011 for an unforgettable evening that will pull back the curtain on this truly remarkable man.

Derren Brown says it all: "One of our greatest living magical performers ..." David defined magic on British television as one of the very first magicians with his own television series ... Winston Churchill, Aristotle Onassis, Paul Getty, the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Michael Jackson, the Sultan of Brunei and most of the British Royal Family have all experienced first hand his incredible miracles of the mind.

From stage to screen – he has acted as creative consultant on numerous major films and the list of Honours accorded to the man is incredible. While many know of his extensive career on stage – few know of his incredible work behind the scenes through his Foundation for Promoting the Art of Magic. His philanthropic endeavours have benefited the magical fraternity the world over and given hope & joy to thousands of young people from some of the most destitute conditions imaginable.

His story in magic is without a doubt larger than life …

Known for his numerous publicity stunts including going down the notorius Cresta Run blindfolded, manipulating and even smoking cigarettes underwater(!), performing Russian roulette, and touring the world, lecturing on and demonstrating memory feats – David’s performance remains unmatched. While his signature pieces include the levitation of a heavy table and a dangerous pulse stopping routine – the most beautiful of all comes in the form of a card effect … the “Holy Grail” of Card Magic known simply as “The Berglas Effect” … to see it performed – is to believe in true magic.

Experience the joy all over again at IMX as we celebrate the man, the magic & the mystery that is David Berglas ....

IMX 2011 - 23 to 25 May, Las Vegas
Limited registrations remain from just $149

Now this is a real magic convention! What A LINEUP! Sadly I am going to Las Vegas already on next thuesday so I will have to settle on WMS and attend there just for one day.

But if the lineup of the WMS would be anything like this I would have gladly paid the full price to be there as well.
