Indocilis privata loqui
I am a member of the Magic Circle, and have written more about the organisation here.
The motto of The Magic Circle translates to not apt to reveal secrets. And that’s exactly what a magician strives to live up to. For a magician it is crucial that we maintain the aura of mystery that surrounds our craft in a way that leaves people in awe.
Although there are some who decide to reveal magical techniques, members of The Magic Circle do their best to maintain a level of secrecy. It should be remembered that the greatest element that can contribute to the overall effect of magic is that of mystery.
The Magic Circle teaches us and guides us on maintaining that mystery and brings us all together under one name so we can represent the best that magic has to offer.
Details about The Magic Circle
As one of the oldest magic societies, The Magic Circle is a well-known name in the magic community. With about 1500 members from around the world, the society accepts only the most professional magicians who display their dedication to the task.
To be a part of The Magic Circle, a magician has to be nominated by two other members. Those members vouch for your performance capabilities and commitment to the art. You are then asked to perform an audition piece in front of your potential peers, and take a written exam. Now, though this is intimidating, the best way to approach your audition and exam is by knowing your tricks inside out, perfecting your performance, and carrying yourself with confidence.
Being a Magician of The Magic Circle
Being in a society that dedicates its resources to magic is an immense privilege.
One of the most exciting aspects to membership of The Magic Circle is the opportunity to meet and discuss magic with fellow magicians. At our headquarters in Euston, London, there are numerous events, and we come together each week to attend lectures and workshops, and watch shows that are performed to help us learn, showcase our skills and encourage one another.
Performing Close-up Magic
As a close-up magician in UK, I am proud to reflect the professionalism of The Magic Circle as one of the most popular entertainers for private events, weddings and corporate events in London, Cardiff, Manchester and around the world.
By watching my performances many people have shown a serious interest in magic themselves, which is something that the society encourages. As a magician of The Magic Circle, I strive to show the world how amazing magic can be!
