Well, at my opinion the right question is: How is the word "Magic" actually perceived by the audience ?
If you ask most of the people who represent a magician, you'll receive "Harry Potter" as an answer.
The contamporary interpretations of the magical world by artists like Alan Moore (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Promethea...), Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Books of Magic, 1602...), the late Jim Henson (the Storyteller, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth), J.K.Rowling should lead you to some conclusion...
Can you make people "believe" that you're emanating from that kind of parallel universe ?
Can you mix the charachters of the X-Men and Harry Potter's world to create a particular personnality ?
Bizarre Magic is far from being dead, believe me.
It's a winning proposition but needs a lot of *** work...

"You know you're a conventional magician when:"
You publish a book in your lifetime and many wish to purchase it to learn your latest tricks.

"You know you're a bizarrist when:"
You leave behind a lone volume after your death, and few want to touch it, for fear of what might be inside.

Hahahaha Steve, I love it!

You know you're a conventional magician when...
Your show ends in applause.

You know you're a bizarrist when...
Your show ends with large fire in the town square.

Wait a minute!

I knew I was a real Bizarrist when the picket line of fundamentalist outside the theater was suddenly ten times larger than the number of actors I'd paid to picket the show in order to get some press...

(What can I say? I learned from the "Last Temptation" that you can get tons of free media coverage if you can stir up the fundamentalist and get them to picket you... and that's really bizarre!)
