Only one warning: do not expect we make an elephant appear! We do mostly close-up magic! But the theory behind can be applied to the elephant thing if you are interested.

The Spanish Magic Workshop begins on Tuesday, November 28, at 4 p.m. (a reception starts at 3:30 p.m.). We will spend the rest of the evening until 10 p.m. talking about how apply the right concepts to strength the magic we do, what is the Magic of Spain, explaining selected routines from every angle (theory, technique, construction, body language, the use of the spectator, handling situations, etc.). You will receive personalized instruction from two of the most knowledgeable and accomplished Spanish magicians in the world. After that, we will spend one more hour enjoying an informal dinner and then, everybody goes home and the schedule repeats on Wednesday with different material.

Javi´s Torn and Restored Thread is so beautiful and wonderful… what I´ve seen couldn´t have any trick involved. It´s one of those moments of beautiful magic.

Noches de magia

La noche de ayer fue mágica por muchos aspectos y es que, cuando las cosas se hacen bien, cuando la producción de un espectáculo se vuelca y lo da todo, se nota.

Ocurrió en la Sala Fanatic, en Sevilla, en una nueva apuesta de Microlibre que llaman “Noches de magia”. Yo notaba que todos estaban muy espectantes y yo el primero. Esto se trataba de un espectáculo a lo grande y en Sevilla (mi tierra) nunca había hecho algo así. También es verdad que es la primera vez que una productora de aquí se vuelca en un proyecto de magia conmigo y lo cuida con tanto mimo.
11236552_944834988881906_1271920163505017309_nQuisimos cuidarlo todo al máximo (la imagen de arriba da un mínimo reflejo de lo que se vivía). La música ambiente había sido seleccionada concienzudamente, la iluminación, el juego de colores…11108205_944835105548561_3893643122673602675_n (1)

Ese momento en el que ves al público entrando y te estás terminando de retocar el vestuario es mágico en sí mismo. Ha venido un montón de gente a verte a ti, ¡y han pagado por ello! ¡Hay que darlo todo! Y con “todo” me refiero a que llega el momento de ser honesto con uno mismo y mostrarles lo que uno da de si al 100%. Que todo el trabajo realizado con sus virtudes y carencias se pongan encima del escenario y hay defenderlo porque ellos se merecen eso y mucho más.

11258153_944834702215268_2158605908669762114_nY llegó el momento de salir a escena. Adrenalina por las nubes y ¡comienza el espectáculo!

Para mi, como artista, sentí momentos realmente mágicos. Ver la cara de esa niña patidifusa, boquiabierta, pasmada, ante la aparición de una moneda que momentos antes era invisible, no tiene precio. O el momento con Isabel en el que nos quedamos esposados el uno con el otro en una situación absurdamente mágica. O el momento con Ramón, un niño muy valiente que será un tío grande seguro.

Finalmente acabamos todos jugando como lo que somos, niños grandes que vuelven a ilusionarse una noche más, recargando energía para seguir el camino de la vida y así puedo corroborar una noche más que la magia, la fantasía, la imaginación, es lo que nos hace únicos y especiales.11114754_944835398881865_469211210152118418_n

Gracias a todos los que vinieron, gracias a la producción de Microlibre, a la Sala Fanatic y gracias a los que me echaron una mano en sacar esto adelante, ellos saben.
