can this variety show fit your event ?

Norvil & Josephine are very versatile magic and variety show...  They’ve performed in many different kinds of venues and even in private houses!  The following information is about the size of the performance area rather than the number of guests or the size of the venue itself.

SMALLER

At least 3 metres wide and 2 metres deep.

Smaller magic shows can always be done if your space is restricted. You will be able to enjoy most of the show's acts.

LARGER

From 5 metres wide and 4 metres deep.

The big illusions usually require that size. You will be able to enjoy the full potential of this magic and variety show.

ANY OTHER SIZE!

Do not worry if your space is too small, too narrow, too shallow or you are thinking of having the show in your living room or any other space.
Contact us to tailor the show for you.

You will also need to provide a sound system and a well-lit performance area but there are lots of tips for that in case you need help. Once some information has been provided about your venue and setup, we’ll have a better idea of which magic and variety acts from the repertoire are best for you.
