Michael Berends  

The magic of Michael Berends is modern, upbeat, interactive, filled with comedy, and of course his award-winning brand of magic and illusion. Using a state of the art sound system and high tech props Michael has the production value to take shows that are usually seen in theatres and television, into more intimate environments.

Michael’s performances have not only caught the love and attention of audiences in Canada but throughout North America with ongoing interest in Asia. These acclaimed performances have also earned him top honors from his peers in the world of magic and illusion. His knowledge of this art as well as his skillful sleight of hand techniques have been used in film and television as well as being sought out by other performers asking Michael to consult on their live performances which has led Michael to give back to his art by helping fellow magicians and magical creators world-wide.

Whether doing the impossible with something as small as a coin a few inches from curious onlooker’s faces to his large scale full-blown stage show Michael is re-inventing some of magic’s classics, doing them like no other before him by shedding a new light on this unique form of live entertainment. Michael’s goal is not to trick you or make you feel foolish but to rather share his life-long dream of being a professional magician, to show his audiences that everyone can achieve their dreams no matter how impossible they may seem. Because, as you’ll see, “Impossible has just become an opinion!”
