HIS FAREWELL LECTURE
The average magician has heard of Martin Nash but knows very little about him other than he's a "card guy". The average card guy knows that Martin is one of the top card men ever, with a trilogy of books that are considered "must reading". Fewer know that he has made his living for several decades as a magician, entertaining "real" people. Martin has performed dove magic (he's the inventor of the invisible harness), card and billiard ball manipulations, and grand illusion. In addition, he has performed all over the world as "The Charming Cheat". Such is the stuff of legends.
In his final lecture, Martin will be covering some of his favorite sleights such as the side steal, his knockout double lift, several false deals, the pull through shuffle, and his multiple shift. You will also learn several applications of his amazing "Infinity" work.
If that were not enough, Martin will also cover practice techniques, misdirection, presentation construction (with the emphasis on character development), how to really work an audience, and much of the thinking behind his magic. You will get a chance to see Martin perform and explain several of his pet effects, including his award winning acts, "Jacks Or Better" and "Ovation".
Martin Nash is sincere in wanting you to walk away from his lecture with something you can use. To ensure this, he is presenting the lecture in a question/answer/workshop type format. He will go where you want to take him. Martin encourages you to bring any questions regarding his work, moves, or routines with you.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to see a living legend work. Spend some quality time with Martin Nash.
"Thank you so much for the lecture. As I said, you did not get a standing ovation, but rather you EARNED a standing ovation. It was the first time I have ever seen our people rise so quickly, in perfect unison as though rehearsed (and, believe me, it really was spontaneous), applaud for so long, or rave so loudly about any lecture we have ever seen."-- Greg Dietlein President, Vancouver Magic Circle.
