Tamasudare script

Postby Richard Hatch » December 11th, 2012, 6:02 pm

Not sure this is the best place to post this (feel free to move it!), but my script for Nankin Tamasudare has just been published as an illustrated children's book and is already available on amazon.com and its European affiliates. Here's a link to the amazon.com listing:

Note that this is not a "how to" book, but just the script I use in performance, a story I wrote to fit the patterns I use. It has been wonderfully illustrated by Andras Balogh of Hungary and translated from English into Japanese by my friend and colleague Yukishige Kadoya. If you are interested in learning this feat, I recommend Martin Lewis' set with instructions, available from him here: http://www.magikraft.com/category/Stage-Magic-2

Just ordered a copy. It looks beautiful, Dick. Thanks for the "heads up."

Thanks, Evan, let me know what you think when you get it. I really lucked out with the artist. He was very responsive to my suggestions! If you think of it and can post a review on amazon.com, that is supposed to help, though I don't know much about how all that works!

If you get a chance to see Dick perform this, you will enjoy it. He does it really well and it is such a unique and beautiful thing. Reminds you of why magic is called an art.

Thanks, Ed. Here's a link to a video of a performance in our home venue about a year and a half ago. Not the best tape or performing conditions (we learned from this tape that the window behind us should be covered and it has been ever since!), but you'll get the gist of it:

Hope to have a better taping to replace this from a performance last Saturday in a "real" theater, the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. The sound balance between the narration and the violin should also be better in that (I hope!).
