The Jerx (SW Erdnase III) – The Amateur at the Kitchen Table
The Amateur at the Kitchen Table describes a set of precepts that, I believe, produce the strongest magic performances in casual, non-professional settings. However, the goal is not only to produce strong magic. The goal is to practice a philosophy of performing that spectators find natural and attractive, and eliminate those elements of amateur performing that often foster the belief of magic being hokey and magicians being weirdos.
This is, essentially, a 46-page essay. There are:
- No tricks
- No illustrations
- Few jokes
