How do you develop your own unique performing style as a magician? Dominic Reyes talks about how you can use the techniques and performances of other magicians that you admire, to create your own unique performing persona:
To create your own performing style, study the personas and performances of your favourite magicians:
Why do their magic tricks keep your attention?
How do they pull you into their magic routines?
How do they construct their acts?
How do they excite you with their magic techniques?
How do they use scripting techniques like metaphors, power words, and suggestion?
How does their presentation make their magic routines stand out?
How do they relate with their audiences?
Why are they charismatic?
Create your own performing style by studying your favourite magicians and absorbing their knowledge and experience. Don’t outright copy them, but learn from them. Pick the methods and approach you like from each of your favourite magicians to create your own personal style; and let your own talent and personality express itself.
