2016 – First Week

2016 – First Week



The Future begins Now….


So it’s with all the verve and vigour of the New Year that my website has had a bit of a face-lift.


It should now be mobile friendly so let me know if you find any issues.


There are several ambitions for 2016, many of them tied to the work that has been, or is being booked.


Experiences from my Christmas bookings have cemented quite a lot of performance ideas that have been brewing for a few years.
When I arrive at many venues the expectation is that I am a ‘magician’ (in the Paul Daniels or Dynamo sense) so when I present myself as a ‘mentalist’ there is a great opportunity to not only educate my audiences but also re-motivate them and change their often jaded attitude towards what they perceive as the role of ‘the magician’ and the ability this archetype has to motivate, inspire, intrigue, mystify – all emotional responses which are valid goals for the artistic performer.


What makes things interesting for me is the genuine belief that there is a there is a very smooth transition between theatricality, psychology, intuition and (for want of a better word) transpersonal experience. If magic has meaning, other than to fool, amuse and entertain people, then it is to get them to question what we mean by the words ‘reality’ and ‘illusion’ for it is the twilight zone between the two that our perceptions create a personal version of both.


Magicians create experiences not puzzles…
