Negotiating the Barriers – Details

Here following is a more in-depth view of what is entailed in my current ‘Negotiating the Barriers’ Lecture.  As mentioned in the synopsis, my performance entails using coins, banknotes, cards, thin cards and utility devices.  Cards are not a huge part of the lecture – purposefully.

Rather, I have woven in a lot more of other material.  My use of clothing for instance, as a utility device is extremely fascinating and very useful.

There are some ‘more on the serious side’ topics of the lecture and then there are other more humorous aspects, with some good laughs.

With many of the routines, I also talk about the psychology behind ‘why I do what I do’.  An example of this is when I do the ‘Double your Money’ routine.  My thinking is based on the law of Reciprocity, which is explained in detail and as to why it is such an effective routine.  I talk about ‘thinking more deeply’ with our magic and how crucial this is.  An example is presented which leaves the audience without any clue as to how things could have worked.

In the second half of the lecture, along with more magic, I discuss and share how important positive thinking is and how this is so connected to our own success.  If I have time, I talk about my unique method for practice.

I guarantee an evening with much to learn and think about, no matter what style of magic people perform.  Much of what I talk about, can be merged into whoever we are, as magical entertainers.

To conclude, whilst there are some sleight-of-hand techniques used in my lecture and which I teach, it is very ‘user friendly’.   Most people will be able to learn what I teach and I guarantee that everyone will leave the lecture inspired.
