About Magic & More
I'm David Pibworth and my company is based in Olney in Buckinghamshire and we are involved in a number of enterprises, all connected with theatre and light entertainment. You can see the other fields in this website, such as representing Steptoe and Son and Tony Hancock scripts for the stage, stage hire, and indeed my personal availability as an actor.
But it's the magic you're after I'd imagine.
I've been doing magic since I was a child, on and off. But over the last few years I've been called upon to make people disappear on stage (without the use of a trap door), re-appear on stage (without the use of a trap door), advise on how to cut people in half, appear to levitate and...oh, all manner of illusions, which is all great fun.
But the one thing I've always enjoyed is to see the look on people's faces when they see a piece of magic right in front of them. In the main, and on a technical level, these gags are fairly easy to perform. It's the presentation of the trick that is really the key.
So when I started selling magic I thought the best way to do it was to explain directly. How many times have you bought a trick that has instructions that are unfathomable? Chinese translation into English isn't the easiest job in the world and is open to misunderstanding. It's like the old recipe one. "Open tin and stand in boiling water for 10 minutes".....
So what I am looking to achieve is for you to be able to understand the trick you are doing, to understand the technique of misdirection and to enjoy it. I'm working on explanation videos, which will be added to the site, and of course I run the Magic Workshops in Olney and also at various schools, businesses and the Pauline Quirke Academy.
