For Mr. Wright?
time FISM award winner Matthew Wright is about to embark
on his LOOKING FOR MR. WRIGHT? lecture touring
Auckland and Christchurch very soon. As well as winning
every competition worth winning in the UK Matthew is also
a full-time working pro.
He has been the Director of Magic at The House of Illusion
in Spain for the past four years and was the Head Magician
at Illusions Magic Bar in the UK before that. As well as
his magic experience he has also studied Theatre Practise
at the UKs top Drama School (Central School of Speech and
Drama) in London and gained a BA (hons) degree in Special
Effects from the University of Hertfordshire.
Matthew brings all this experience together in an action
packed lecture which includes every aspect of performance
including character building, movement, scripting and routining.
The lecture also includes many effects which feature directly
in Matthews working repertoire and has something for
everyone of all skill levels, from self working miracles
to more challenging sleights and from walkaround close-up
magic through to parlour and cabaret effects.
Having not seen Matthew before I was not prepared for the
great evening that we had. The fact that he was The Magic
Circle Close-up Magician 2008, The International Champion
of Close-up Magic and 2nd in the F.I.S.M. Championship
should have been a big enough clue but he surpassed all
my expectations. What was so good about this lecture
was not just his comedy performance of some really impressive
magic but that we were truly entertained.
Even the explanations were entertaining! Entertainment,
we are constantly told, is what magic is about and here
was a classic example.
Bill Jenner - Bexley Magic Society
I've attended quite a few lectures during my time at the
SCA , some good, some very good, and some not so good. Well
Matthew Wright's lecture was up there with the best of them.
Everyone likes being entertained and Matthew entertained,
everyone likes magic and Matthew was magic, everyone left
the club with a smile on their face. In fact I'd go as far
to say that even if there were no explanations I would still
have felt the lecture was great value because I could watch
Matthew all night. An excellent performer and an all
round nice guy.
Jim Kelly - President of the Scottish Conjurers' Association
Matthews lecture is so much more than just a lecture,
it is an insight into the working mind of a professional
with a fantastic personality who is at the very top of his
profession. The lecture is one which is full of workers,
everyone in the room left with effects which could be added
to their current working repertoire, but we didn't just
learn tricks, we also left with an understanding of how
to structure and script an act and how to entertain.
Matthews effects are ones which have been honed over 1000's
of performances and this really shows with the magic he
performs, add Matts personality and humour to the effects
and you are set for 2 hours in the company of truly magical
performer. This is a lecture you must see and one
which you will learn so much from, go book him now.......have
you booked it yet?
