Lecture: Mike Caveney & Tina Lenert (Oct 1)

From IBM Ring 17:

That Hat & Rabbit Club in Toronto presents an informal get together with Mike Caveney and Tina Lenert.

Tina has just released a new book “Finding the Spotlight”, part of Vanishing Inc’s Astonishing Essay series.

Mike is going to be sharing some of the mysteries of “Egyptian Hall Museum” and its relationship to a special magic happening in Toronto.

Tina Lenert’s life in magic began with a chance visit to the Magic Castle. She was already a professional mime, and the Castle inspired her to find ways to combine the arts of mime and magic. She has been doing that ever since, creating various acts that have earned her numerous awards, including Magic Castle Stage Magician of the Year. Her performances have taken her around the world several times including performances at the London Palladium, Princess Grace Theatre in Monte Carlo, the Wintergarten in Berlin.

Mike’s talents have taken him from Japan to Russia, from Monte Carlo to Borneo, Australia, China, throughout Europe, South America and most of the 50 States. On television, Mike was dubbed one of the NEW VAUDEVILLIANS and the Hollywood Reporter described him as “…one of the funniest magicians in America.”

He is a member of the Inner Magic Circle of London, England and a life member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle where he has twice been voted Stage Magician of the Year.

Mike has performed on the legendary Orient Express, at the London Palladium, at the Sydney Arts Festival and was featured on NBC’s World’s Greatest Magic television special, the Late Late Show with James Corden, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Mike has written more than a dozen books on the practice, theory, and history of magic including Magicomedy, The Great Leon. Harry Anderson–Wise Guy, and Carter the Great, which was awarded the John Nevil Maskelyne award for literature by London’s Magic Circle plus additional awards from The Milbourne Christopher Foundation and the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame. In 1999, Mike was awarded the Literary Fellowship by Hollywood’s Magic Castle. He co-wrote Servais Le Roy – Monarch of Mystery and Kellar’s Wonders. In 2009 Germany’s Taschen Books published MAGIC – 1400s to the 1950s. This massive tome, co-written with Jim Steinmeyer, has been translated into six languages. Mike has published three volumes of his on-going column Classic Correspondence from Egyptian Hall Museum. His life and all of his original magic appears in Mike Caveney Wonders and The Conference Illusions, a two-volume set that earned him the ‘Sharing Secrets’ award from the Allan Slaight Foundation in Toronto

Toronto: Luminato Announces 2011 Magic Programs

From the Luminato website:
Luminato, Toronto Festival of Arts and Creativity, today announced the Festival’s 2011 Magic programs. The fifth anniversary edition of Luminato introduces two original magic shows and features world premieres, vaudeville nostalgia, and the interactive, improvisational style of modern magic.
 
About the shows:
Natural Magick: A 90-minute show written by David Ben and Patrick Watson, with music by John Lang.  Ben recreates magic from the repertoire of the world’s master magicians, revisiting feats of wonder in the context of “scenes” realized through the prism of projected imagery and John Lang’s playful score.

Vodavil:  Featuring some of the world’s most gifted variety artists, including comedian-magician Mike Caveney, mime and magician Tina Lenert, physical illusionist Ardan James, magicians and parodists The Great Tomsoni and Company, and Gaetan Bloom, a master of the absurd.

Eric Mead - Toast of the Town: Showcasing Eric and the art of improv 'bar magic.'

From the Sharing Wonder website:
Tickets will go on sale in mid-April. We will be giving an advance purchase option to subscribers, so make sure that you join the Magicana eList to receive word.
