I’m grateful to be world champion, but I have one regret – I wish I had the chance to dance a tango with Pope Francis, a tango enthusiast himself, because he was literally a few meters away in Quebec .

VIENNA, AUSTRIA, Aug. 2, 2022 / — At the 28th FISM World Magic Championship in Quebec City, Canada, with 110 artists competing, Anca and Lucca won the gold medal in the magic category mind with a new version of their mind-reading act “The Mind-Reading Revolution”.

Their success is no accident. Since 2015, the two magicians have qualified for all FISM World and European Championships, winning three silver and two gold medals in five competitions, making them the mentalists with the most FISM medals of all. the temperature.

Their mystical and humorous depiction of an ethnic clairvoyant based on Anca’s Transylvanian heritage won over the jury and was rewarded with standing ovations from an audience of 2,000 magicians. Their World Championship award-winning mind-reading act is available in English, German, Romanian, French and Italian, which is another unique quality of their work.

“We are thrilled to have our decade of work recognized again. Winning the gold medal is just amazing!” the two artists rejoiced when they returned to their children in Austria on August 1.

Anca and Lucca’s displays of mind-reading, prediction and clairvoyance are so incredible, even to other magicians, that they have renewed their notarized million-dollar pledge at this world championship of magic. Anca & Lucca never use pre-arrangements, secret assistants or electronic devices for their performances, calling their performances “unplugged mental magic”.

Alongside their accomplishments, their journeys are equally fascinating and have helped develop their artistic talent: while Viennese Lucca has been an extreme perfectionist pushing the boundaries of mental magic over the past 25 years, Romanian Anca has completely changed her life after falling in love with Lucca in 2011 and eventually gave up her corporate career to become a professional magician.

Before the magic, Anca had been dancing since the age of 6 and was considering a political or corporate path after receiving a flattering letter from Dr. Henry Kissinger at the age of 18 for his corrective remarks on his book “Diplomacy”, while she was studying a double major. in international relations and business administration. Anca eventually became a business consultant, while continuing to perform privately as a ballroom dancer, her lifelong passion.

Lucca, an artist and philosopher at heart, has always been driven and determined to create incredible magic, while being a political animal himself. Anca and Lucca are both fervent defenders of human rights, particularly interested in the emancipation of women, so they have attracted each other and created a new magical kingdom where the woman is no longer the assistant of the master. Through mind magic, Anca finally found a focal point for all her interests.

Their romance and journey to collaboration are the central themes of Lucca’s book “The Art of Amazement” and their theatrical performance “The Mind-Reading Revolution”, which they plan to tour to English-speaking audiences. When asked how they felt after winning the Mental Magic World Championship title, Anca jokingly replied “Grateful and happy, but I have one regret – I wish I had the chance to dance a tango with Pope Francis, a tango enthusiast himself, as he was literally a few meters from the Convention Center where the World Magic Championship was taking place in Quebec.”
