    Nicolas Dutel was outstandingly talented to the level of his title at the “Quebec Magic Festival”.
    Throughout the well-structured scenario, his routine flowed unmistakably along the magical river.
    Each of his moves was methodically studied & synchronized, thus all appeared motivated & natural. Moves were all chained rhythmically together & were often unpredictably amusing.
    The background music suits in harmony with his attire & reminds me of the “Blues Brothers” movie, it was quite entertaining.

    Unlike Gary Kurtz (who happened to confuse audience with his quick in-hand manipulations), Dutel performed the same Tenkai techniques fluently & in a very relaxing manner, thus he allowed audience to follow sequences & appreciate more of his impressive skills. IMHO, his magical techniques have attained the same level of those renowned magic artists like Gary Kurtz, David Roth, Jeff McBride, Shoot Ogawa, LuChen…

    If I have to perform a Tenkai show in the future, his routine would undeniably remain among the ones that I’ll be inspired of.

    All in all, S.A.M. would miss a big talent, if his candidacy was not retained.
