Roving Close up Magic
I can wander around performing smaller magic tricks and mentalism with coins, cards, rubber bands or just random things I borrow. These are short performances of between 5 to 15 minutes for groups of 10 or less. This is somewhat improvisational and each act will be mostly different with no set routine. This is suitable for an event at a restaurant, function centre or private house party.
This act is suitable for a small stage or platform to entertain a group of 100 people or less. It is a very visual self explanatory magic with balls, coins, cards, rope, paper and pencils. It goes for half an hour. I need roughly 30 to 40 minutes to prepare and set up the performance space. This act is suitable for a club, private party, wedding or festival.
At festivals or outdoor functions occasionally I will do a street performance style show where I draw in an audience of 50 people or less in a circle or semicircle. This goes for between 15 and 20 minutes and has tricks quite similar to the cabaret act requiring a similar amount of preparation and props. My career as a magician in Sydney actually started 11 years ago when I started busking on Pitt Street or at Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. I still do it occasionally for the fun of it.
Depending on your needs I can do any combination of the above three options with the prices adjusted in proportion to however long you want me performing. For example occasionally I have been asked to do a 15 minute cabaret act and then wander around doing close up magic.
Considering most of my magic depends on sleight of hand, there are some physical restrictions on the size of the tricks that I do. It will be very difficult for the whole audience to see if there is anything more than roughly 100 people. I should also advise you to consider whether the performance space you have available is appropriate for a large show and to keep in mind that you may need to adjust the seating configuration in order to maximise visibility.
