Igor OSIPCHUK, “FACTS”
— How much we’ve been looking for information about the illusionists under the age of my 7 year old son Sasha, or the same age as he, to find information and failed, — said “FACTS” Darya Makeyeva, mother of the young magician of Ukraine Sasha tan from Krivoi Rog. — So as soon as the situation with the pandemic, we will contact the editor of the Guinness Book of records for registration of my son as the youngest illusionist in the world. To date, he has participated in several international festivals of arts, which won the Grand Prix or the first place. In Sachin 65 repertoire of tricks, including levitation (floating in space) of various objects — table, bottles of drinks, a ball of fire… Such numbers are performed adults high class masters.
“The son is not only magic, but also acrobatics, swimming, JIU-jitsu, drawing”
— How is it that your son was fascinated by magic tricks? ask Daria Makeeva.
— Last year, when he went to first grade, the teacher asked the boys to play on March 8 with some interesting numbers. By the time Sasha had already spent several years in acrobatics, swimming, JIU-jitsu, drawing. We decided that acrobatic exercises audience is not particularly surprising: among the classmates there are guys that attend classes in this sport. The techniques of JIU-jitsu girls are not interested. And to draw the eyes of the spectators picture for too long. Son said that to impress the guys he had nothing. But he did not despair, began to think that would show such things, unusual. Sasha suggested tricks. By the time he was already interested in them: read about famous magicians, watching videos of their performances. Finding a mentor has decided not to be discussed. Began to search for information in literature and Internet.
We started with close up magic — magic with small objects that show small audiences: “the disappearance” and “appearance from nowhere” balls, handkerchiefs, pens, coins… had to prepare these stunts in the festival, the performance was a great success. Son were inspired by the success and wanted to continue to do magic. Now he is in literature and video tutorials (including English) have mastered the numbers that are on stage performing masters from USA and Europe.
Daria told that the son many hours of the day rehearsing the performance of tricks. The photo of Sasha with a diploma of the National registry of records of Ukraine that he is the youngest magician in the country
— You translate him from English?
— More to the point, help with the translation. I have three degrees. One of them is an English teacher. I was good language practice and worked in the United States. The son seemed to understand English — teaching him from the age of three.

One magician told me that in his stage costume with lots of secret pockets. How many of them in costume for your son?
— You know, for the disclosure of trade secrets was expelled from the International brotherhood of magicians, and magicians, whose headquarters is in the USA, in Ohio. And we want Sasha to join them. Actually, at the moment, no matter how much his stage suit pockets, because he does not use them.
By the way, this suit is a cylinder made in our order of the famous designer Tatiana Alekina. She creates hats for Irina Bilyk, Dmitriy Kolyadenko and other celebrities.
“In the house lived a live “props” — pigeons, parrot, rabbit, Guinea pig”
— A lot of time Sasha goes to the rehearsal?
— A few hours a day. I must say that he left any thing that was doing before. While it lasted the school year, in the first half of the day he went to school. Afternoon sports and English. Then we did homework. Before sleep he spends a couple of hours tricks. Quarantine is not interrupted Sasha playing acrobatics, JIU-jitsu, drawing, English — we have organized individual trainings and lessons, some of them are held outdoors. Well, the trick, of course, the son of rehearsing, and with great desire. By the way, books about magicians and novels about Harry Potter some of his fondest.
Sasha uses large props, which help us to gain friends from different parts of the world. Part of the equipment order from Ukrainian masters. With the help of props Sasha demonstrates tricks, designed to display in large conference rooms. He has rooms with pigeons, a parrot, a rabbit, a raccoon, Guinea pig.

— You have a room reserved for the petting zoo?
— No. One room is reserved for storage of stage props. And Pets (except raccoon, which we rent) live in different rooms. We have, incidentally, there is also the Bengal cat breed which we all love. While he was in the room not involved. But responds well to training, and I’m sure soon will be with Sasha on the stage.
— Sasha, what trick is your favorite? – asked the boy.
— When is a vase with artificial flowers. And then the flowers disappear.
— What are the magic show the children in school?
— “Pocket” — with playing cards, coins…
— Animal feed myself?
Yes. Pigeons, parrot, rabbit and Guinea pigs live in cages. Only the cat walks freely. Thinking about how to use it in my speeches.
— This is the first interview son! — says Daria.
— You do not work and the whole day I devote to the son?
— I am now on maternity leave. Daughter three years. It has already started to master the performance of tricks and to learn English.
— We have for many years followed the development of children who are Champions, — told the “FACTS” project Manager “national registry of records of Ukraine” Lana Vetrova. — They grow before our eyes! And I can confidently say that no child who received the status of the champion of Ukraine, stopped in its development. On the contrary, the status becomes incentive for parents to actively develop the talents and abilities of their children.
