is a magician and a creative consultant with a sharp focus on contemporary and interdisciplinary ways to present and experience magic. Exploring the grey area between reality and illusion, he is inviting the audience to consider and question the nature of wonder and astonishment itself. In his experimental magic practice he is particularly interested in the themes of repetition and the decay of wonder. In his performances, he playfully addresses the absurd, weird and irritating qualities of magic.

With background and experience in traditional entertainment magic he has turned his attention to challenging the conventional rules of the craft. Slightly annoyed by artificial and dusty magic tropes he uses the tools of contemporary theatre to poke holes into our perception of reality.

Luis Carr completed formal training in Magie Nouvelle at the CNAC, Centre National des Arts du Cirque in France in 2020. He is the co-founder of Magic Monday Leipzig and he is currently working collaboratively with visual and performance artists to explore new interactive formats for staging magic.
