Magic History and its Adaptation to the Circus Arts 2015

Teaching at the Ecole Nationale de Cirque 24 september 2015I’ve just finished the first magic class of the year at Montreal’s National Circus School and am still feeling that post-teaching rush. It’s quite exciting to be sharing magic history, techniques and the latest examples of “magie nouvelle” — a new, interdisciplinary mixture of circus and magic arts — with the next generation of performers who will be amazing audiences for Cirque Éloize, Cirque du Soleil, 7 Doigts de la Main and other professional companies. After all of the course handouts, props, and content that had to be managed today, I know that I’m physically pretty tired. It’s worth it though. It’s inspiring to see magical lights turn on in the minds of these talented performers. I can’t wait to see what ideas they come up with this year.
