Peter Marvey
Zurich, Switzerland

Peter Marvey (b. 1971) is a magician and illusionist best known for his combination of sleight of hand and large-scale stage illusions.


While still in high school, Marvey created his first illusion, a version of levitating girl. Later on he interrupted his studies to concentrate on creating illusions. Marvey studied, designed and practiced for seven years to create an illusion called "Dream Flying". He first performed this illusion in Perpignan, France, in October 1999, for a magic convention. He later performed it live on TV in 2001.

Aside from flying illusions, Marvey has created many levitation systems. These include the levitaion of spectators live on stage and floating objects which can be watched at close range.

Prince Albert of Monaco presented him with the Golden Wand trophy in 1996. Marvey received the Merlin Award of the International Magicians Society in 2002. He won third prize in the Grand Prix Manipulation category at the 19th world championship of the Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques (FISM) in 1994 in Yokohama, Japan.

In 2009, Marvey opened a 99-seat theater in Feusisberg (near Pfäffikon, Schwyz), Switzerland where he regularly performs.
