"A superb coin magician with some very clever moves and ideas. His magic looks like magic, and he is truly is an actor playing the part of a magician." -David Roth
"Magic's future is in the best of hands, literally. Behind an almost unassuming but charming and delightful exterior, hides one of today's most creative, intelligent and capable performers. His original magic and superb handling, as well as his holistic approach, typical of the Spanish School of Magic, will more than just please you. And, yes, he will also fool you badly." -Roberto Giobbi
"Not only one of the greatest coin men of all time but one of the greatest all around magic stars of our time. Everyone in magic should watch and listen to anything Miguel Angel wants to show or say." -William Kalush
"Miguel is incredible. One of the best kept secrets in magic." -Paul Wilson
"A role model for the lovers of magic. Structured and thoughtful magic." -Dani DaOrtiz
What will he teach?
He'll start out with a very special prologue involving several games of cards and coins, including one where an object travels back and forth in a way that WILL fool you.
But, don't worry, of course he'll teach you how it's all done, and you'll be pleased by his attention to detail.
He'll continue to examine some challenges in card magic as he teaches you how to load a card between others, or vanish one without technical difficulties.
Next, he'll explore several transpositions and discuss various techniques and handlings, including using rubber bands with cards in amazing ways.
Then, he'll move into his incredible coin magic that is based on the work of Joaquin Navajas.
You'll learn how Miguel incorporates clear drinking glasses to heighten both the deception and the impact of his coin routines.
He'll also teach some beautiful sleeving work, and a matrix that words simply cannot describe... it must be seen to be appreciated.
Finally, Miguel will talk about important performance issues, like plot and sub-plot, and how to use theatrical techniques to create desired responses.
He'll demonstrate, of course, with several of his own effects where he combines magic with his personal artistic expressions...Like a poetic production of the four aces, or a coin that appears, transforms, and vanishes like a dream.
Who is he?
One of Spain's most talented close-up performers, Miguel Angel Gea, here for a lecture that promises to change the way you think about your magic.
Miguel Angel Gea's approach is firmly rooted in the respected traditions of Spanish Magic, and he, in fact, is one of the teachers at the Ana Tamariz School in Madrid.
He also studied clowning with famed director and Cirque-du-Soleil clown, Gabriel Chamé, and has applied his theatrical skills to the performance of close-up magic.
You may know Miguel as one of the Fat Brothers, a trio of Spanish magicians whose DVDs have astounded us all with their unique approach to magic.
He has won First place for close-up in Flasoma, AND the National Congress in Granada, plus the Grand Prix Special at the National Congress in Zaragoza.
This is a rare opportunity to spend some quality time with a man whose magic transcends mere trickery.
