Magic Teach in and Lecture by Kim Silverman
Free to attend!
During the Business Meeting we will be teaching how to make a basic flap card and some different ways of performing it. There will even be some extra cards for people to make their own with!
Next, we have none other than master magician and storyteller extraordinaire Kim Silverman!
This lecture will not teach any new tricks. We all already know too many tricks. And we perform too many of them less well than they, or our audiences, deserve.
When Kim performs magic, people often cry, hug him, look him in the eye and say “Thank you! I needed that!”. We all want to make a deep impact when we perform magic. This lecture will present a number of ways to make our magic more meaningful and memorable for people, to give our audiences a deeper experience of mystery. This will include character, body language, eye contact, timing, articulation and intonation (many magicians don’t really know what these words actually mean!). But most importantly: scripting. Two approaches will be suggested to make our magic touch people more deeply, and both will be demonstrated with a number of performance pieces.
After the May meeting, we will all be going to get a late dinner, and you are invited! This is a great way to get to know other OMC members, session, talk shop, and hang out! We’ll meet at Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe at 4081 Hollis Street in Emeryville. Hope you will be able to join us!
