I've been very casually doing magic and very basic
tricks since I was very young. Long enough that
I have a (perhaps irrational?) dislike for the most
recent guys to become popular on TV.
I have decided to take it more seriously now,
and have found myself in a world that I did
not know existed. It is, and has been, an
awesome trip so far.
I work regularly with teens, and discovered that
one of them has taken a serious interest in
performing magic as well - so we're secretly
practicing some things together, though I'm not
necessarily experienced enough to be any sort
of "mentor" in the field of magic, however...
We'd like to work up a bit of a dual-performer
"show" that would last about 20 minutes, for
some upcoming events for other teenagers.
I was wondering if anyone cared to offer any
particular effects, ideas, scripting, that
might work well for that type of act/audience
(about 80 teens, 6th to 11th grade)...?
I am most familiar with card/mental/close up
stuff, so doing something from the stage will
require a whole different perspective, however
I am in bands, and do "public speaking" to teens
at least once a week, so I'm pretty comfortable
on a stage.
Thanks so much for any ideas/advice!
