In Transformations: Creating Magic Out of Tricks, Lawrence Hass uncovers some of the higher secrets for creating strong, entertaining performances of magic.
Drawing on over fifteen years of experience as a performer and as an award-winning teacher of college courses on magic performance, Dr. Hass shows that being an excellent magician does not reside in knowing lots of “tricks,” but rather in the thoughtful application of psychological and theatrical principles that transform our best tricks into experiences of magic.
As world-famous magician Eugene Burger has said: “This is a wonderful book written by a very talented performer. It is full of secrets. . .that will make you a better, more engaging magician.”
Pages 185 – Hard Bound
Along with seven clear, engaging essays on magic performance and eleven fully-realized performance pieces from Larry’s repertoire, Transformations also includes a previously unpublished routine by Eugene Burger and forewords by Jeff McBride and Marc DeSouza.
“This is a wonderful book written by a very talented performer and master teacher. It is full of secrets: great tricks and thoughtful scripts, and also the subtle strategies of presentation and psychology that will make you a better, more engaging magician. Prepare yourself: you and your magic are likely to be transformed.” – Eugene Burger
“In the following pages, not only will you gain a deeper insight into the history and mystery of Larry’s search for magic, you will also learn secrets for transforming your own performances.” – Jeff McBride
“Dr. Hass has a revolutionary approach to performing, teaching, and learning magic. He focuses. . .on making magic meaningful. . . . I have seen him perform many of these routines for several different audiences. They never fail to elicit a tremendous response.” – Marc DeSouza
