Author: Newsmaker added 11-05-2013, 01:56
Vitaly Beckman Canadian Illusionist Vitaly Beckman was born in Belarus. When he was a child, he moved with his parents to Israel and then to Canada. Now he is 31 years old, and the guy shows real miracles from the scene: he can give a picture a life or replace one's photo in the driving license to another.

Belarusian site TUT.BY found Vitali and asked several questions.

- What kind of tricks can you show?

- I have shown tricks for 16 years and I can make the picture come to life and its characters go out of the painted canvas ... I try to involve the audience in my show as much as possible, so that people become a part of the performance. For example, I can teleport an object from one's hands to the other. I try to make the tricks look original.

- And what is your education?

- I have a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. But I can't say that I get an education which I use now.

- How many years did you live in Belarus?

- I lived in Gomel till 8 years and left Belarus during the Soviet Union time. I remember little about life in Belarus: the circus building, a few moments in school when the teacher read us a book about Neznaika. I also remember the song from the evening program for children, "Good night, kids" and the famous Soviet magician Amayak Akopyan, whom I saw on TV. I do not know what local newspapers write about Belarus, because I do not read newspapers, as a rule, media focused on the negative news. I would like to visit Belarus because I have relatives there.

- How did you become being fond of magic?

- I was always fond of art, from painting to music in the theater. And I'm sure that it is the purest form of self-expression. I think the magic is the highest form of art that can only bring joy to people. It helps to feel that anything is possible and there are no limits in normal life. At the same time, magic tricks return adults to childhood and help to remember the emotions they experienced.

- How much does a ticket to your show cost?

- The price of the ticket depends on place and time and who is producing the show. But we always try to make the value optimal that a large number of people could attend the show.

- How much do you earn per month?

- It also depends on the number of performances. Sometimes I have five to nine performances in the month. I am lucky to do what I like, but I have to say that I do it not because of money.

- How much do you think you would earned if you live in Belarus?

- I have no idea about this. Do you want to make me an offer? I can come to Belarus with my show.
