Close Up

Close-up is magic’s most intimate form, with audiences generally ranging from a single spectator to a small group of people. These performances often feature audience involvement where each participant may feel like they are part of the magic. Commonly used close-up props are playing cards, currency, and cups and balls.


Parlor magic refers to a semi-formal performance for a medium sized group. Some items of parlor magic may be performed on stage for a large audience or for an intimate gathering, so it is an excellent genre for exploration. Tricks may require apparati, advanced preparation that make their performance more conducive to a scheduled event, or audience participation that may be ill-conceived for too large of a setting. Classic effects include the Linking Rings, Miser’s Dream, and the Professor’s Nightmare.


Street magic is generally associated with the impromptu performance of tricks using everyday items and is regarded as much less formal than close-up or parlour magic. Performing to a collection of randomly collected people on a street or other thoroughfare, seemingly at the drop of a hat, is one of the oldest and most popular forms of performing magic. A long tradition that still continues today and has even been reborn into a newer form thanks to the influence of David Blaine.


Cardistry evolved from the simple playing card embellishments and ornamentations seen within card performers’ acts in the last century. It is a rapidly growing artform that has spawned its own subgenres of playing card flourishes. From single card twirls to multi-packet displays, this impressive display of dexterity is eye-candy for spectators.


Technique refers almost exclusively to effects that can be done solely through the abilities of the magician, and their dexterous fingers, than with any cleverly crafted piece of apparatus. While sleights can occur in almost any magic performance, a sleight of hand artist will attempt to use any available objects, many of which can be borrowed, and craft miracles simply with the use of some cleverly conceived and deftly executed maneuvers.


Mentalism is the art of reading minds, predicting the future, telekinesis (moving objects with the power of your mind), and much more. These kinds of feats are particularly noteworthy due to the fact that many audiences are ready and willing to believe that they are real.
