On Monday evening, July 17, 2017 at 7:00 P.M., Midwest Magic is proud to present...direct from the combined IBM/SAM Convention--world renowned magician:
Negotiating the Barriers lecture by Trevor Duffy – July 2017 lecture tour
Trevor Duffy is an award winning comedy magician and entertainer residing in Johannesburg, South Africa. He has performed professionally for the past 24 years.
His Close-Up and Parlor shows showcase a unique blend of comedy and magic, including routines with coins, banknotes, cards and utility devices. He shares secrets and then his thought process behind the scenes. Laws of Human nature are also woven into his methodology, all and all making for an extremely user friendly and practical lecture.
Cards are not a huge part of the lecture – purposefully. Rather, he has included a great deal of other material. His use of clothing for instance, as a utility device, is extremely fascinating and very useful.
There are some ‘more on the serious side’ topics of the lecture and then there are other more humorous aspects, with some good laughs throughout.
With many of the routines, Trevor speaks about the psychology behind ‘why I do what I do’. A prime example is his DOUBLE YOUR MONEY routine. His thinking is based on the Law of Reciprocity, which is explained in detail and as to why it is such an effective routine. Hi will speak of ‘thinking more deeply’ with our magic and how crucial this is. An example is presented which leaves the audience without any clue as to how things could have worked.
In the second half of the lecture, along with more magic, Trevor will discuss and share how important positive thinking is and how this is so connected to our own success and his unique method for practice.
In Trevor's words: "I guarantee an evening with much to learn and think about, no matter what style of magic people perform. Much of what I talk about, can be merged into whoever we are as magical entertainers. To conclude, whilst there are some sleight-of-hand techniques used in my lecture and which I teach, I pride myself in saying that I have constructed this lecture in such a way that it is ‘Magician friendly’. In other words, there is not “simply impossible stuff” that I do and which 90% of people will never be able to learn. Rather the other way around - 90% of the audience will be able to learn and I guarantee that everyone will take something (or some things) valuable home with them."
"Trevor Duffy's lecture is commercial, numbering among the best this group has seen."--John Luka.
