Further development of magic

Axel Hecklau is known as one of the most creative magic minds of Germany.
He lectured more than 200 times in more than 15 countrys worldwide (including at FFFF, the Magic Castle and at FISM ).
For the very rst time he will lecture in Canada. He will present his latest creations and improved effects for stage, parlour and close-up situations.
His routines are known for their strong impact, simplicity and cleverness.
e.g. Just a Cup. It looks like a Chop Cup using a dice cup and a die – but it isn’t.
Because of his different technique he is able to do more astonishing moves and
gets more flexibility during the performance. Everything is examinable at any
moment, instant reset. The perfect routine for table hopping and stand up shows:

Axel Hecklau has taken the T & R card to a new practical, visual and emotional level. TWO-Fusion is the perfect closer for a wedding show. See a performance here:

Look forward to his pack small / play big stage card routine, “Destiny” or the
napkin rose 2.0.

His latest release will be MIND VISIT his advanced version of the Tossed out deck, in wich he is able to name all spectators cards individually. – a mind reading piece par excellence.
These are only a few examples from this lecture fully packed with practical magic.
