Jack COOPER – Project Manager

13 December 2016

Jack Cooper has developed an interest in magic since his youth. He is a self-taught man who learns his art patiently and referring himself to severals works about conjuring. At the same time he has been inspired by the big Masters such as Arturo Brachetti ,who Fellini described as the “ Last Clown “, Myr and Mytoska, Paul Daniels and also Juan Tamaris.

Quickly, Jack gave the priority to never be labeled as a stereotype. During his performances, he has always wanted to mix great illusions, mentalism, manipulation, interactive acts, telepathy and also shadowgraphs. “Bringing magic where you don’t expect it to be”.

Jack wish he could have a global step, reaching the use of magic effects in others artistic subjects. Such as the notably event of Sincèrement and la Puce à l’Oreille, two theatral productions of the theatre Le Public in Brussels.

As in 2011, when the famous indian stylist Manish Arora, now Paco Rabanne artistic director, call on Jack to realise the magic effects for his fashion show during the Fasion Week in Paris. He has also developed specific shows for special occasions and clients. He has also take part in some prestigious parties in several locations such as : Juan-les-Pins casino, Hammament in Tunisia , Munich, Arsenal in Venice, Metropolitan Hotel, Parc Theatre, Comic strip Museum and Bourse in Brussels, Brussels and Liège airport, Tour Eiffel…

Reguralrly, other magicians ask his help for the design of their shows .Jack Cooper is also a great passionate about conjuring history. He has become a fierce collector and, for someone, an historic reference of the art of Illusionism.

He is also the artistic programmer of the Gala at the Macamagie festival. Jack Cooper is the artistic coproducer and codirector of the theatrical festival Bruxellons!, one of the most important summer festival in Belgium.

He has increased his collaborations with Luc Petit in the last years. Firstly as an artist : the Nocturnales in Liège Cathedral, Indian wedding in Venice, the readyto-wear show Mais il est où le soleil at the Autoworld in Brussels.

But also as creative man for the magic effects and the directing for the show Amway China in Munich, and also for Peter Pan- the world arenas tour, realised at Forest National in Brussels.
