Looked like Magic to me.

He used mime, puppetry and creativity to achieve it.

There's a lesson there somewhere...

The Zombie and black art toward the end were incredible.

This was one of the most beautiful and artistic things I have ever seen, But the comments below, EVERYBODY trying to figure out how he did the effects. Why can't people just enjoy the magic???

Just goes to show that no matter how good you are, how much wonder you create, (And this definitely created a lot of wonder) people feel COMPELLED to figure it out.
It's like they can't rest at night until they know the secret.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

It's important for us as magical entertainers to remember this. The audience isn't somehow defective; they're curious. We need to work with this, not against it.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Funny thing about French entertainment. Their pop music is awful, but they support beautiful acts like this. On balance, I like what they're up to.

I think we are a pre-selected audience that is already biased to be interested in the mechanics of things like this. I suspect many of Mr. Murat's audiences do not wonder about the mechanics as much, nor allow it to deter their enjoyment, as no challenge has been laid down.

I saw a street puppeteer in Paris once. He had fake arms holding a wicker basket filled with red cloth. He controlled two puppets, lovers, who very, very slowly turned towards one another and caressed each other's faces. Incredibly expressive and quite beautiful.

The French coffee drinking crowd loved it and filled his basket, I'm not sure that such a slow moving act would make it on our streets.
