"Simply super strong magic full of surprises!" - Juan Tamariz

"He performs real miracles." - David Williamson

"Dani is everything I love about magic." - David Blaine

What will he teach?

As you know, Dani DaOrtiz is one of the best, and most original, card magicians in the world. Combining subtle techniques and silly humor, his unconventional style seems improvised, but in this (his third) Penguin Live lecture, he reveals just how calculated it really is.

He begins by borrowing two decks and having someone take any card out of one of them. Another person in the audience names any number they like. Is it possible that THAT card is at THAT number in the other deck? As you'll soon discover, with Dani DaOrtiz... anything is possible!

Next, as he cuts cards to the table, four people say, "Stop," at any time to make four random piles, leaving him exactly ten cards. Which doesn't seem too significant... until he reveals that each person stopped him precisely on the four tens from the deck.

Also, a spectator thinks of any suit, changing his mind a few times. Everyone else grabs cards from the deck. Without looking at their faces, Dani finds ones that match the thought-of suit. The only thing that would be more impressive is if all the random cards matched the thought-of suit... and they do.

Then, he finds two named cards from a shuffled deck placed into his pocket. It's his extra-deceptive take on a classic card problem, and you'll love it.

And finally, multiple people shuffle while one of them peeks at a card. Everything is collected and the spectators take turns deciding which cards to eliminate until only one remains. And it sounds impossible, because it should be, but the last card is the very one secretly peeked at earlier.

In addition to the impressive tricks, Dani also shares the basis of all his psychological forces, which rules in magic to break and why, and so much more.

Who is he?

In performance, he seems to be the picture of complete nonchalance, even going out of his way to help randomize an already chaotic performance. Yet, miracles happen with the utmost, and ironically unexpected, regularity.

Everyone is talking about him. His methods are unique, his presentations brilliantly entertaining.

Incredible magic from one the world’s most astonishing magicians… Dani DaOrtiz!

Another terrific lecture from Dani. Very, very few magicians play with psychology and intention/motivation like Dani does. Incredible.

Having said that, I didn't care so much for the "new format" of having a full performance followed by a half-lecture. I guess for a guy like Dani who jumps from trick to trick it makes it easier for Penguin to get the explanations they want for each trick but it felt disjointed because of the format. That doesn't take away from the content of the lecture. Daortiz is someone who people will talk about in the same breath as Tamariz one day. He's that great. Don't miss this. Or his other two lectures.

Dani DaOrtiz once again shows his great inventiveness with card tricks, combined with his fantastic unique brand of showmanship.

Here the emphasis is much more on his use of psychology in the structuring and presentation of tricks, although he does touch a lot on forces, creating the impression he never touches the deck, and just dozens of other little subtleties which contribute to the overall impression one gets.

There is a lot to learn, and the first hour alone is just packed with dense practical theory and examples on how to improve ones magic. I watched it twice back to back, the first time as a straight run through, the second in large chunks. There is a lot to learn and absorb here, Dani will give an incredibly practical and easy to implement tip in just a throwaway sentence, so there is a lot of value in rewatching, I highly recommend.

Also in case anyone was curious, he does reference some of his previous lectures, but not in any way that you need to have them in order to understand what he's saying (although you might as well get them as they are full of gold as well).
