BDC,

Really helpful post it has definately got my brain rattling and has almost opened the gate for me to delve deeper into my magical performance. Its always nice to see how people analyse their own performance: the strengths, weaknesses etc, because it can sometime highlight aspects of concern in you own performance.

Great post

Will

A recent PM brought me back to this post. Since this thread originally appeared, I have expanded on these ideas and principles in my book Theatrical Magic. Not only do I go into further detail on each point, I also supply you with the worksheets and creative exercises to help you really put it to work. Without sounding like a commercial, I want to recommend that anybody wanting to pursue these ideas further pick up my book.
Swing hard, swing often, and we'll catch ya on the Flip-Side!

I couldn't agree more. After having several conversations with Big Daddy on this topic, I have a copy right next to me as we...err...type. It's well worth the price from what I've read through so far.

BDC is my Yoda. The words of wisdom flow like a fountain. The only thing I will add to this, and this part is going to hurt, stage time. If that means doing free benifit shows, entertaining at the nursing homes etc., do it. The more you are in character the more your character will develop. You will learn by doing it over and over again in front of people, what they respond well to and when you lose them. Getting paid to do magic is great, but sometimes its worth it to find a charity to work with just for practice and exposure. Once you really know who you are on stage people will respond.
