Frederic PERANT, allias "Fred Cie Poc"

Frédéric has been a juggler, object manipulator, musical gesture and street performer for over 20 years. He has gradually built up his own vision of juggling, in a beautiful fusion of orginality, passion and talent.

Through his encounters, magic has become part of his world and the natural catalyst essential to this alchemy. His work on Juggling, Magic and Music has been the recipient of international magic awards as theMandrake d’Or 2013 and theGolden Magic – Moscow 2015.

It has been aclaimed forFISM, Wolrd Championships of Magic Korea 2018, White Perm Convention 2014- Russia / Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde 2012 / 45th AMA Awards Show – Magic Castle Los Angeles / Blackpool Magic Convention 2012 / Masters of Magic 2012 / FISM 2012 Blackpool / BIFM 2012 Busan Korea / French Congress of Illusion 2011 and many TV shows in Italy, China, Russia, Portugal…

For the last 3 years, his researches on musicality of juggling, place the juggler as a real musician, and his objects as real instruments : incorporating bounces, shots and trajectories of balls in the musical composition and body-percussion choreography. A practice where we look at music and listen to movement. On this work, he has been collaborating closely wtih Mikis Papazof, a body-percussionist and Guillaume Lancou, a multi-instrumentalist, who perform with him in his last show BPM.
