Siegfried is a Los Angeles based performer and sleight-of-hand magician. He was born and raised in Ecuador, where his passion for magic began. His first international appearance was in 2011 in Bogotá, Colombia as part of the show Bicéfalo. In 2012, he moved to Los Angeles and became a member of the world famous Magic Castle—an exclusive private club dedicated to advance the art of magic—where he is a regular performer.
In 2015, Siegfried headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival—the largest arts festival in the world—where his performance was highly praised by critics and media outlets. Siegfried’s show also received a special distinction as “The Sickest of the Fringe” by The Sick of the Fringe project, a curated program of events aiming to inspire collaboration between science and the arts.
Today Siegfried spends time creating magic in his Los Angeles studio and working on new projects. Although he has appeared in a few film productions and collaborated with numerous artists and organizations, his heart is in performing close-up magic in front of live audiences—always with his sleeves rolled up.
