Many Magics is an ‘informance’ that blurs the distinct between true biography and invented persona. The magician takes the stage to give a personal account of his life in magic. The magician takes the stage and reflects on a life in magic, but which stories are true and which are lies?
Based on the work of Eugene Burger, Robert Neale and Larry Hass, Many Magics examines performance magic as an area for practice and research. It includes responses to key popular magicians such as David Blaine and Derren Brown, a discussion of the taxonomies of performance magic, and a number of magical effects to illustrate them.
