About Lawrence Larouche
Lawrence received formal training in both the performing and visual arts at John Abbot Collage and Nova Scotia Collage of Art & Design.
Several years after their graduation, Lawrence and his partner Cynthia decided to combine their skills to create a magical production called Vision Impossible. The show was an outright success, as was their personal relationship and in 1987 they were married. They spent the next 5 years performing within the corporate market until the summer of 93, when a telephone call initiated a once in a life time opportunity to work with magician David Copperfield.
During the three week magical adventure across Canada, Lawrence and Cynthia learned a lot about what it took to sustain a large-scale production while on the road. The experience inspired them to expand their own magical production and branch out into the festival and special events arena.
They created an elaborate and colourful production, which could be performed outside, without any technical enhancements such as lighting or fog machines. The colourful sets, costumes and of course the illusions were received by out-door audiences with overwhelming enthusiasm and MAJINX went on to be a popular attraction in festivals and celebrations across the country.
In 1999 they competed in the Canadian Championships of Magic and walked away with first prize.
In the summer of 2000 while performing on the International Show Place stage at Paramount Canada’s Wonderland, they decided to incorporate their children into the act. Audiences became fascinated by the fact that it was a real family on stage performing spectacular illusions. Eventually more illusions were designed with the children in mind and MAJINX evolved into the perfect family production suitable for all ages.
Within the walls of the MAJINX Magical Workshop, Lawrence designs and builds some of the most innovative magical effect in the business.
