Magic Lecture Series in the hidden vault at Fantasma Magic was a really a rare O P P O R T U N I T Y !

A very unique performance gave young Nick Blum, who showed an enticing performance piece involving magic/clowning/ mime. Wearing a yello costume! he would do sleight of hand magic with red pompoms on the the costume and additional similar looking red balls, which vanished and dissapeared in a very unique way. GOOD JOB NICK!

JEFF immeadeatly asked if he had worked with Avner on the piece. And he was right some directors just leave their unique fingerprints. Jeff really gave some good advice towards ending and closing the show.

I spoke briefly to Chris McDaniel, he just finished a Broadway show and is working on new material in addition to his rope act.

At the end of the seminar we got to have quick a look at the work of an amazing cirque perfomer. She does Hula-Hoop/Ring juggling. Jeff immeadatly praised the good choice of music, some kind of bulgarian theme. Jeff actually said:"She is doing the goddess thing." She also does solid five clubs and showed a little bit of an act with real wow diabolo-stuff, like Jeff she is influenced by a japanese theme. Jeff liked again her choicemusic- it is japanese style guitar rock or something. Jeff recommended a sword kongofu style intro for the diabolo.

Joe Wood, Kenn First, Richard Laufenberg, Nick Blum, Max Kovis, Jimm Joz, Anton DiFillipi, Joseph Linn, Michael Hatch, Steve Cohen, Meike Fromm, Anthony Guy, Chris McDaniel, Allan Rubenstein, Minnizina, wiiliam Lamm, Tood Neufeldt, Mall Cross
