Magicians seem to do the impossible; making objects vanish into thin air, guessing the correct card, and levitating … things that are hard to explain.
But it’s not what they do that creates the mystery; it is how they do it. As table magicians, we only succeed when we present our brand of magic. Creativity is what keeps the mystery going!
Creativity essentially means thinking outside the box; doing something that isn’t mainstream. But how do we switch that creative bulb on? Here are a few ‘magic tricks’ for creativity:
Something old in a new way
There are a few magic tricks that are more enjoyed. So, naturally every magician learns and tries to adopt the same. But not every magic performance is the same. How does it happen then?
The essence or the core of magic is unique. It can be adopted and performed in a number of ways. Creativity is using a trick in a way it hasn’t been done before. Take a card trick; how many magicians do the trick in different ways. Performance changes, while magic remains the same!
Pairing the unexpected
You’ll be awed to see how different things can pair up together, giving rise to something new. This is the central core of magic; connecting things that don’t look compatible or similar. Doing this, we bring on something new, while not really introducing a new trick.
But it’s only done with trial and error. This is why we spend so much time practicing to see what pairs up best. As magicians, we’re constantly deconstructing the mainstream and reconstructing things back in a new way.
Focus on the story
Focusing on the trick is not the answer. Even amateurs can perform a trick flawlessly. What makes it magic is the mystery of how things unfold. We create a story, and live in it with the audience, unfolding it bit by bit.
Creativity and magic lie in the way we design the story around the tricks. Looking at it this way; magic can never be without creativity. We all want to see something different and create what hasn’t been created before.
In my experience, it has always been the way I perform magic—and not just the kind of tricks I perform—that has won hearts.
