Beyond Amazing: Creativity and Innovation in the World of Magic

A free event featuring:

Steve Cohen
Joshua Jay

Todd Robbins

Magic is an art that draws heavily from its heritage, yet requires a well-spring of new ideas to avoid stagnation. In a field characterized by secrets and mystery, where do new ideas come from and how are they realized? The four accomplished magicians on this panel will talk about how they develop their acts, how effects are created for the magic marketplace, where magic fits in the realm of the overall performing arts and much more. Select performances of relevant effects will also be included.
