Magic and travelling
March 11, 2014 4 Comments
I’m back after a break from the magic world. I’ve been travelling the past six months and so have no idea what’s been going on in magic – I even missed the Blackpool convention for the first time in 7 years!
It’s been good though, having a break, not obsessing over learning new routines and moves (I still miss my books though) and I’ve been able to concentrate on refining the tricks I already know; to think them through properly and try an eliminate any unnatural actions so everything is justified and therefore more magical. It’s been great fun.
I’ve had real fun performing over the past few months – to fellow travelers and local people alike and in fact have performed more whilst traveling than I ever have before. Over the last 18 months my focus has shifted from concentrating on magic technique to magic performance and I’ve decided that I will devote the next 12 months to improving further. That being said the blog may shift away from the purely technical so expect to find more performance and theory related posts – stay tuned!
