"I've known Alain for more than 20 years. He is a mentalist with a message. He amazes and inspires... He walks the edge of belief and disbelief." - Jeff McBride

"Alain Nu is someone who quite literally practices what he preaches. His Zen-like approach to performance is a lesson we can all benefit from. You'll be pleased that you spent time learning from his masterful approach to mentalism." - Colin McLeod

"When I am with my friend Alain Nu, I always learn something. Now, so can you. When Alain speaks, I listen. Alain is one of mentalism’s great thinkers and teachers. His creations are practical, incredibly well thought out and thoroughly entertaining. His work will delight you, amaze you, and make you think. If you have even a passing interest in the art of mentalism, Alain Nu’s lecture will be an enlightening experience." Jon Stetson

"Alain's knowledge is so in depth it is hard not to be excited by the principles and techniques he shares. Anything Alain shares listen, it's real-world, working, hard hitting and really clever. Me and Alain have talked frequently over the last few years and jammed on many occasions, I feel I am a better performer for knowing him!" Peter Turner 

Workshop Information

For those who attend this workshop, I will offer one FREE copy of one of my manuscripts which used to retail (before going out of print) for $50 plus postage. They will be offered to LIVE lecture attendees for $35 as a special lecture discount, as well. But it is technically a FREE $50 manuscript of their choice, just for attending the workshop... Which basically means that they are technically getting to attend the workshop for only $75! Interested? Please read on:

Mind Over Matter & Metal Bending with The Man Who Knows  Workshop: 2 hrs: $125

In this introductory workshop, Alain will feature the art of his rarely-seen work on moving objects while allegedly using the powers of his mind as well as a sample excerpt of his annual metal bending workshop, Systems of Transforming Metal. Here, he plans on revealing the real world of metal bending along with two (or more) of his original handlings to bending spoons as well as his thoughts on bending coins.  The principles and presentations taught during this class will require a deeper and advanced understanding of both magic and mentalism, which is why it is best to experience them first-hand from a true master of this art-form during an intensive workshop environment. Prepare to have your minds blown in ways you will not expect. Alain Nu presents for mostly corporate and special events, casinos, cruise ships and theaters. In other words, he is a real world performer who specializes in his own original form of creativity and expression. Prepare yourself to witness personal principles, techniques, ideas and philosophies that will take you into realms you may never have thought possible. It is a rare treat when anyone gets to see what lies beneath the surface of The Man Who Knows!

(This workshop requires a minimum of 5 interested participants / maximum of 12)
