Daniel's current act is a one-
The first character in the show seems an unlikely start to the sequence of characters that follows. The audience sees a kindly old gent appear on stage, pushing a large theatrical trunk. He seems to be one of the stage hands, bringing on the artist's props. On the side of the trunk, in large letters, are written the words "THEATRICAL COSTUMES", which arouses a certain curiosity. Whatever could it contain? The magic of this show begins as soon as the trunk is opened.
Then, within three seconds, the old man transforms himself by donning a costume that he finds inside the trunk: a happy joker who introduces a multitude of other characters. It is difficult to believe that all those characters are played by the same person. Daniel manages to capture the essence of every character that he interprets, by using some sort of gesture, the slightest facial expression, the poetry of the moment...
During the show, Daniel performs many rapid costume changes and introduces many special effects of magic and illusion, brought to life by a whimsical situation, comedy or a specific emotion. Some magic tricks can be a little old-
Daniel has meticulously studied the stage arrangement, to satisfy an international public. There is no moment during the show where Daniel talks or expresses himself vocally. Everything is based on the "visual". Music is the only acoustic support that accompanies each individual character. The synchronisation of the costume changes and changes of music are the fruits of intensive study and lengthy rehearsals; the results are noteworthy. Undoubtedly, Daniel's experience gained during many years spent on stages around the world has provided him with the best technical and artistic training one can have. As with every type of show, only great experience can bring the maximum levels of perfection, especially if one considers that this type of show demands much technical preparation, whether it be for its costumes or its special magic effects. The meticulous costume preparation is based upon the rapid costume changes: each and every accessory, costume or accessory must be prepared to the smallest detail and must be positioned in exactly the right place at exactly the right moment. To describe the technical aspects of these details would risk revealing the secrets of this art form, which even now is still little known and is performed by the smallest group of quick-
Stretching the technical complications of rapid costume change even further, Daniel manages seamlessly to change the gender of his characters: changing from a male character to a female one and then adopting a completely different male character. To the audience there seems to be no possible explanation for this; often it is thought that Daniel has either a twin brother or a masked stand-
The rapid and dramatic change of facial make-
Ever present in the show are the special effects (scene changes, pyrotechnics and lighting) that render the atmosphere still more magical and mysterious. The duration of the actual show is about one hour in the "One-
When both his daily performances are over, Daniel checks meticulously that everything is in perfect order for the next show. Much physical energy is required for an exceptional result: a standing ovation, which is merited to the extraordinary skill and talent of this fantastic artist, who gives the best of himself at every show. A show that is still admired and applauded on every continent (Europe, America, Australia and as far away as Asia and even Polynesia and Hawaii). Daniel is currently one of the most sought after performers of the most prestigious cruise lines, hotel resorts and casinos worldwide.
