The Michael Vincent/Darwin Ortiz Workshop: A Magical Collaboration

About this workshop
For the first time ever, Michael Vincent and his mentor Darwin Ortiz present “A Magical Collaboration.” Teacher and Student come together to share their views on the technical skills, presentational techniques, and design principles that produce strong, elegantly crafted magic.
Imagine for a moment what it would be like spending time in the company of these two world-class magicians. Imagine that you had a chance to talk to Michael and Darwin together, to learn from them, and to ask any question you wanted about sleight of hand and card magic. What would you ask? What do you need coaching on? How do you think your magic can improve with their honest feedback? On Sunday, November 19th, you can stop imagining and experience it.
Here is your chance to benefit from the unique but complimentary perspectives of two great magicians. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to grow as a magician with Darwin and Michael as your guides.

Among the topics to be covered
• The Travelers plot
• shuffle work
• memorized stack work
• whatever is on your mind

If you’re so inclined, come prepared to perform an effect—whether a work in progress or an old workhorse—to receive coaching from Darwin and Michael. (If you’d rather not perform, that’s fine too.)
