Thought you guys might enjoy this, not sure how many of things are "new" but I did think it was a treat to simply watch such a slick routine with obviously beautifully trained birds. And there definitely are a lot of birds. As someone with a somewhat restricted knowledge of bird magic (i dabbled but worries about bird flue and time constraints meant that I never ended up getting an act together) I was wondering if "experts" rate this as highly as I do?
Enjoy:

I was a bit confused as to why this appeared though as I always believed Grand du monde had a strict no animal policy, was this ever the case?

I guess not seeing as there is another video of a magician, and he has a dog, rabbits, doves, etc.

I liked the performance, but I don't know much about animal magic yet. It looked well done, and his birds seemed very well trained.

I don't know if theres a "no animal policy" I think Lee eun gyol was on the same show and he performed a bird act..

Does this only air is Europe?

I don't know that I'm an expert but this was a tremendous act in my opinion. His steals were quick and flawless. The act itself was different as you never knew what to expect.

I really enjoyed this act it was really smooth and the birds were very well trained.

I don't know if there was ever a strict no animal policy on Le Plus Grande du monde because there have been several dove acts and animal acts on the show in the past. Unless its a new policy.

I really liked this act, but felt that there were too many endings. I think he should have stuck with the one Macaw and not produced the green bird. I felt that the production of the green bird got a great response, and then came the macaw, and it kind of took away from the macaw (the real ending).

But it was nice! I love how he worked in the Parakeets! Smile

Yeah the Parakeet productions were really good

As for the Green bird, I don't think it took away for the "real Ending" I think the dramatic productions before the macaw only keep the audience thinking...Whats next? and the once they think it cant get any better, he produces the macaw. Smile

I really enjoyed the act. The birds were trained extremely well. I like the slow peiece in the middle with the streamer. It wasn't the traditional bird act. I also liked the variety of birds. Very exotic.

There is NO No-animal policy on the show.
It is very animal friendly.

Hi Arno,

I loved your act - especially the cute parakeets!

I am interested in getting a couple of parakeets to add to my dove act and was wondering if you, or anyone else here on the forums, could tell me the name of the parakeet production you use in your act, where a silk goes into your pocket on its own and a parakeet comes out!

Thanks,

All the best,

~Eddy

Im not 100% sure But I think that his parakeet productions were ideas he came up with.. Like the one you saw with the silk going into to the pocket.. Im guess he came up with the ways he produce the parakeets.
but I'm not sure maybe that silk into the pocket turning into the parakeet is on the market.. but Most likely its not and its his prob his effect... Smile

Ohh and Smile with the Parakeets!
