Mastering the Art of Transformative Street Magic

Shawn Anthony has been performing Magic around the globe for nearly 20 years. He has managed to bring the intimacy of close up magic to his grand illusion show and received rave reviews about his unique styling. Shawn started out in magic as a close up and street performer learning many tricks of the trade through his years of experience performing magic on the streets and through his mentors Jeff McBride and Eugene Burger.

In his new lecture "Street Alchemy: Mastering the Art of Transformative Street Magic" Shawn brings this knowledge to you in a very real way that can transform any act from lead to gold and have your audiences not only remembering your name but leaving your shows transformed and ready to see it again and again. In this lecture you will learn some of the following and much more,

Scripting, movement and costuming.

This lecture holds something whether you are just starting out or if you are a seasoned veteran of our Art. Included in the Lecture Shawn will be performing his Street Magic routine, that will then be broken down to demonstrate the points of the lecture.
