    Our history

    1987 - An entertainer, named Mark Frans, was born

    Illusionist Mark Frans was born in a loving family where ‘entertainment’ was present from the beginning. Victor Frans, the father, played with a band for many years. The brother, Dirk Frans, got the same germ and also went in the direction of music and sound with starting his own sound & light company. Mark Frans got infected with this too, but in an other shape. Already on his 6th year of life, Mark decided to grow further in the world of circus and entertainment.


    1999 - Member of Open Magic Circle Limburg.

    Quite early it became obvious that the hobby of Mark Frans was much more than just a hobby. The available products and books about magic in the free market didn’t suffice his needs. This pushed the parents of Mark on a quest for a solution. He was taken in by the Open Magic Circle Limburg as the youngest member. There he was coached and helped to grow further in the magical world of illusion. Not many years later he became the secretary of this notable group of magicians.


    2002 - The first price at the Magic Hand Day (BE).

    After the first combined clubperformance of the Open Magic Circle Limburg, Mark Frans was asked to participate at one of the most prestigious magic-competitions of Belgium, the Magic Hand Day. There he won the first price in illusion with his original presentation with classic illusions. Here he was 15 years old at the time. A whole new world opened and Mark began performing his show in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.


    2011 - The highest price at the Dutch Championships of Magic.

    After a long, busy period of presenting shows in Belgium and surrounding countries, the urge to gain an other price grow again at Diamond Illusions. The whole team gave absolutely everything to present a beautiful routine with a combination of dance, emotion and illusion. This is something Diamond Illusions always wants to achieve. In the Netherlands they won the highest price in the category illusion. The act is to be seen in our page with the video’s.

  • More about the way we work

    Our shows are build by the love and effort of the whole team. That's why we are called Diamond Illusions and not Mark Frans. A new show is born by a process of brainstorming. All the crazy ideas are thrown in a list and of all the ideas the best will be choses to make real. Following to this we bring ourselves in an environment that stimulates the growth of a original act. This environment is used as a catalysator for our building process. A place, a trip, some music, ... everything can help. Finally a story is born. Illusions are fit in the story and the spectacle is ready to be build.

    Rehearsals are intense. External partners are called to help with the choreography, movements, expression, music, … this is a hussars work with many hands. All these partners are activated to get the best result at the end.

    Next in line are the illusions. We prefer to use standard illusions, but we put our own creativity in these creations. Illusions are modified or rebuild to fit the part in the whole act and storyline. To do this, we have a workshop and the Fans family where dream can come true.

    Finally the props, choreographies, the music and the story fit together and the concept is ready for marketing. We constantly work on our touring shows by critically analyzing our creations. We strive for perfection, as a general goal for the perfection of a diamond.

  • Tales of Magic

    This illusions spectacle is specifically build to achieve a very big impact on the audience.

    This 2 x 20 minutes program holds a huge amount of grand illusions, baffling effects and a stunning décor.

    The whole concept is being carried by a storyteller which leads the audience through a dark and refreshing “fairytale.” For the grown-ups there’s a version which is impressive, dark, funny, sexy, … while the version for the younger audience is more decent. The clothing is adjusted, music is less scary and the interaction is less intense. We recommend an audience of at least 12 years old because of the use of swords a.o.

    This spectacle has some requirements about the setting. To know more about these requirements you better contact us to discuss the possibilities. We make no half, so good communication are a must!

    In this production we work with 2 assistants. Both take a crucial part in the plot of the story. Furthermore they averagely switch their costumes 6 times during the show! Only this gives an insight of the dynamic character of the show.

  • Diamond Illusions Traditionals

    This illusion show is the base of our repertoire. The many illusions we bring in this show fit almost in every venue. This makes the possibility and affordability of an illusion show interesting for everyone.

    There are approximately 10 small and medium illusions in this production, woven into each other with some choreographies, the right music and perfect stage setting.

    Offcourse a minimum area is needed for this show, but this free area is limited to a minimum of 5 meters wide and 4 meters deep. Even is this is not possible, we want to provide a show that fit’s your demands.

    Are you looking for a huge spectacle with international illusions, we would like to refer to our ‘Tales of Magic’ show.

  • Diamond Hotel upside down

    An amusing theatre concept with a certain morality which is very applicable for children. This is blende into a big production with tricks, animals acts, big illusions and a huge load of interaction!

    In the story a real diva tumbles into an old hotel that isn’t quite her taste. The piccolo of the hotel, which is busy moving the luggage of the disappeared magician, is instantly in love! The diva has no eye for the clumsy piccolo and ignorantly goes het own way. The audience is activated to help the poor piccolo to conquer het heart, but this does not run easily… How this story ends is a mystery off course, but we assure it gives a good laugh.

    A minimum stage size is required for this show, but this is limited to a minimum of 6 meters by 5 meters. Please contact us for issues or more information.

    The show runs for two parts of 45 minutes and is ideal for children from 5 till 15 years old.

  • Childrens Magic Show

    A classic childrens magic show which is very popular for birthdays, Catholic kids parties, neighborhood celebrations and even cultural events!

    The possibilities of these shows are quite unlimited. We brought this show for 4 children and 400 children. Everything is possible!

    Magician Mark is an experienced orthopedagoge and by this he can interact with the children in a decent and creative manner. A mental disability, a widely varied group, … every time he knows how to take control of his audience and make them enjoy the magical experience.

    The children’s magic show can be adapted to every theme and is quite dynamic in structure. The repertoire Mark brings varies according the audience. No show is exactly the same, and that has a certain charm because the act gives what the audience wants.
