Oliver is a full time stage and close-up magician, he specialises in visual stage magic and regularly performs his stage/cabaret acts in theatre shows and cabaret venues such as the Leicester Square Theatre and the Hippodrome Casino in London.During his lecture he offers effects for close-up, mentalism, stage and children’s magic. Throughout the explanations he illustrates how to make performances more powerful by applying the rules of stagecraft, how to deconstruct a routine or act whilst eliminating any unnecessary movements and actions, and how to give your magic more of an impact in general.
He shares the workings behind one of his regular working stage routines, the evolution of ideas and inspiration throughout its creation that includes a bottle production, the appearance of a glass of wine, and a manipulation sequence involving bubbles.
Plus, there are effects with cards, roses, a T & R restored paper and mentalism routines.
He also covers his thoughts on stage magic with an introduction into how the techniques, psychology and rules followed by stage manipulators can easily be applied to all performance situations: from cabaret to close-up and from parlour to mentalism.
