ONLINE WORKSHOP

BUILDING THE IMPOSSIBLE

Theoretical and practical workshop on construction in Magic, the art of choosing and structuring methods to make them as deceptive as possible.

______________________

The workshop consists in 5 sessions, each one with approximate duration of 80 minutes. The pricing is 20€ per session

Reservation for the last session (IV & V together) October 24th already available in two schedules to cover most of the time zones. Limited seats.

Important: If you are interested in previous sessions drop a message.

______________________

Theoretical concepts will be introduced progressively in each class. Although the contents are interconnected, each class is self-contained. Reference will be made to other relevant concepts when appropriate, even if they are not the ones to be explored in deep in that corresponding class

Examples and exercises will be proposed, both to work during the class and to as homework

In each class, at least one routine from my repertoire will be explained and analyzed. The routines require a medium level of skill so the student is assumed to have basic technical knowledge. The material needed for each session will be specified. They will be, for the most part, basic and easily improvisable objects such as cards, coins, cups and balls…
