Iain performs the following types of magic:
Close-up/Table/Mix & Mingle- Close-up magic is an involving, intimate piece of personal entertainment, designed to be enjoyable, mystifying and, above all, memorable. It is magic performed to small groups of people by a magician who carries everything he needs on him and who can move smoothly from one group or area to another, providing an unusual mobile entertainment service. In Iain's expert hands, cards, coins and other everyday objects do impossible things, right under your nose and sometimes even in your own hands.
Because Iain works to small groups, he is able to involve his spectators completely, in a way that virtually no other form of entertainment can. Many people have never seen magic performed so close before and it is a source of enormous fascination and amusement!
It is suitable for any group, of practically any size. It requires no special staging, lighting or venue. It is perfect for creating atmosphere and it is an ideal adjunct to music, dancing or eating.
Cabaret- This type of magic is suitable for medium to large audiences, when there is no stage available. All the action happens much closer to many spectators than in theatre performances; cabaret contains a lot of audience participation. Not only does Iain borrow various objects from audience members but often the volunteers themselves take part in creating the magic. During the performance, Iain performs a variety of astonishing feats, including some incredible mind reading, which the audience will remember for a long, long time.
The show can last from 15 to 40 minutes and is suitable for audiences of up to 150 people.
