Will Houstoun’s Modern Magic lecture
January 31, 2018 @ 19:00 - 21:30 CET
Lejonparten av detta seminarium presenteras på Engelska, och förutsätter generella förkunskaper i trolleriets terminologi. Alla, inkl. totala nybörjare är i och för sig välkomna, men får acceptera att kanske inte hänga med i allt.
“Will Houstoun’s easy manner and pure sleight of hand deservedly took the title. His incredible coin and card manipulation made an audience believe in magic again. It was a real pleasure to see.”
The Modern Magic Lecture
Wednesday, January 31, 19:00
The Magic Circle’s Close-up Magician of the Year 2015, Dr Will Houstoun, has completed a PhD in Victorian Conjuring, holds Fellowships with The Magic Castle (LA) and the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), and is back with a new lecture based around his DVD set, “Modern Magic”. During the lecture Will will teach a selection of card and coin magic that is suitable for close-up and parlour and on which he has been booked to lecture around the world, including multiple appearances at The Magic Castle and The Magic Circle.
The material that will be taught ranges from easy to intermediate difficulty and will all be taught thoroughly, with a view to explaining the details that really make the effects work, as well as something of the history behind them.
A sample of the material being taught in the lecture:
The card trick that Will performed on the TV-show The Next Great Magician will also be taught:
The magic Will Houstoun presents is not only baffling, it’s beautifully performed and clearly explained with reference to provenance. Will has lectured for International Magic at both our Annual Magic Convention and club lectures. On each occasion, he has presented an outstanding lecture receiving plenty of compliments. I’m extremely happy to recommend Will’s lecture for any magic club meeting or convention and can assure you, you’ll have an interesting, entertaining and informative evening.
I have watched Will’s extraordinary talent develop over the last ten years and I am very excited to see this project finally come to light. His technical ability with cards and coins is simply flawless and the Modern Magic DVD project will cement his technical and creative virtuosity on a global scale.
Smooth as silk… I loved your three fly and all your little touches. One of the best I’ve witnessed. Your shadow coins move so effortlessly and your attention to detail is unmatched.
