“Every Table a Stage” - Dan has been performing in all venues for many years but his specialty is restaurant magic. The routines that are Dan's bread and butter will be displayed along with nuances to some of his classic effects. From the expert to the beginner, there is a little something for everyone. From 3-5pm in the Parlour of Prestidigitation.
Often, performing effects requiring advanced preparation or gimmicks is not practical. On the other hand, performing totally impromptu effects are often not as strong or as convincing as they should be. This lecture is titled “Balance” because it offers what Daryl feels is a good compromise. In the Parlour of Prestidigitation, from 3-5pm.
From Hawaii by way of Massachusetts, Kainoa teaches material designed for visual impact, cleanliness of method, and modular climaxes. While sometimes challenging, the effects were created in the "table-hopping trenches.” He will also discuss transforming close-up into stand-up material while sharing the latest coin techniques for both beginners and experts. In the Parlour of Prestidigitation, from 3-5pm.
