Improv & Magic Workshop with Harrison Lampert – September 28 & 29
September 28 & 29, 2019 | 12pm to 4pm
Performance is a huge part of magic. Scripting, character, and listening are just a few factors that can take magic to another level. How do we develop that muscle? How do we get out of our heads? Improv is a great way, as improv and magic go hand and hand. Both take a specific kind of timing, both require listening, as well as truth in performance. In this workshop we will be applying improvisation concepts to magic routines. Using these tools, students will be able to find new unique ways of approaching how they do magic as well as honing their unique voice. Through this course we will learn how to stop overthinking and live in the moment. How to have a script but not let performances feel written. And we will tackle one of the most important tools in improv… listening. In magic, listening to our audiences is vital. In this course we will be going outside the normal approach to magic to create fun and exciting routines that you may not even know you could do.
