What will he teach?
This lecture includes:
Surrogate — One of Eric’s favorite openers. A color changing deck you have to see to believe!
Flash Coins Relit – This is staple in Eric’s strolling repertoire. Coins appear and vanish at your fingertips, at your command.
A discussion on Coins Across in Three Acts:
1. Peregrination — A workhorse coins across routine that Eric performs EVERY SINGLE DAY!
2. Speed Fly — A warm up exercise Eric uses to warm up his hands to prepare for shows. Imagine a 3-Fly routine with NO EXTRA Coins, and NO GIMMICKED COINS!
3. Impossible Coins Across — The real work on the routine that fooled Penn and Teller on National Television. Coins appear and vanish in THE SPECTATORS’ HANDS in the most impossible ways.
Eye Candy — Eric’s handling of a traditional sponge ball routine is chock full of audience management to keep you one step ahead at all times.
Spectatorial Triangulation — a discussion on an essay Eric wrote for his upcoming 2017 lecture notes designed to allow the performer to gauge if angle-sensitive material will work in a specific environment and how to make that material play in less than favorable conditions, with just a simple statement.
