Lauri’s story

Magician Lauri Tuhkanen found an interest in magic already as a little boy, after having seen the television shows of two famous Finnish magicians. Later, at the age of merely seven, Lauri found his first book on magic on a school trip to a local library. Subsequently, Lauri became interested in both juggling, partner acrobatics, the circus, and in the performing arts on a broader level. Now, at the age of 33, he has over fifteen years’ experience in performing both as a magician and in several circus productions. He has also taken part in a couple of theatre performances. The most important aspect for Lauri is, nevertheless, that the performance be magical; be it regarding the theatre, the circus or his magician’s performances.
