Well 2020 has been a tough year for the performing arts, and as we obey social distancing guidelines it meant the cancellation of many festivals I would have been performing magic in, including the Edinhurgh Fringe. With the impact being felt internationally I also saw cruise ship gigs cancelled and all work dry up.
However as the world turned to digital solutions I found a possible outlet for magical performance, and offered magic shows via zoom to corporate clients and occasional General Admission events. This resulted in shows where my spectators were sat in their homes and logged in for a truly interactive and immersive magical experience.
I look forward to returning to theatres, festivals and live venues – but until then I am really happy to be able to continue sharing magic via
