Laurent Piron

“Wonderful, elegant, and moving… The ultimate objective is to provide the audience with a truly magical experience, a rarity in our art. It’s a genuine gift. Laurent Piron and Hugo Van de Plas have brought this dream to fruition. Congratulations!” – David Copperfield

The show

In July 2022, Laurent Piron, a native of the Pays de Herve, achieved the prestigious title of World Magic Champion from FISM (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques) with his Paper Ball act from the TIM show.

This victory stands as the highest accolade in the realm of magic, recognizing the exceptional quality of Cie Alogique’s work, the captivating emotion conveyed by the act, and its technical innovation.

Under the guidance of eminent figures such as Etienne Saglio, Yann Frisch, and Raphaël Navarro, new magic has firmly established itself as an artistic discipline in its own right.


With this creation, Laurent Piron takes us on a surprising and poetic adventure that challenges our perceptions, delves into our subconscious, and transports us to a parallel reality.


[TIM / meaning of the title]

• Acronym: Time Inside Myself, Through Innerself Magic, and Theatre Illusions Marionette;

• From Latin Timeo: to fear, to dread, to be afraid;

• The name Laurent would have given to his child if she had been born a boy.


In the press

“TIM”… A delicate ode to the fragility of beings.

Farewell to rabbits, doves, and ribbons emerging from top hats and other magician’s wands. Today, magic has other tricks up its sleeve. It has become a total art form, still provoking mirages but with the help of puppets, dance, circus, light, and optical illusions.
