v31 – Conjuring (first week, full)

week 31 (July 29 to August 2)

This is a hands-on workshop in conjuring. There will be loads of exercises in misdirection, dramatic and deceptive structure, as well as in prop making. We will examine magic theories, apply them and discuss them in the context of performances. The course is suitable for those with moderate experience as well as experts. We will work from early morning to late night and you’ll find it both challenging and rewarding.

The course is already overbooked, and the application is now closed.

The registration form can’t automagically limit the number of reservations, we must close it manually. If the course gets overbooked before we can close the form, we’ll have to limit the number of participants on a ”First come, first served” basis. This means that the fact that you complete the form unfortunately doesn’t guarantee you a place on the course, but the sooner you fill it in, the better your chances. We’ll notify everyone about the outcome as soon as we can.


The workshop will be given in English.
