Hello everyone! I have been lurking for a while, gaining lots of insights from the various threads. I am actually the advisor for a college magic and mentalism club at Weber State University and I have been trying to think of ways to support the students in their development in the art. The club is only a year-old at the moment but aims to provide a space were folks at various levels of magic performance interest on campus can come together and grow. Whether it is a student wanting to explore the art for the first time, or someone performing who wants to take the next steps. I have seen you all give great resources for folks starting out (like the card college series, Wilson's course, etc.) I was wondering if any of you had ideas on resources on developing a performance character? Personally I have just reached the point where I think I am ready to explore this aspect of the art as well, but I do not feel knowledgeable enough to answer student's questions. At what point did you figure out your character? I assume any books are more likely going to be more theater focused, which is fine, but I don't even know what authors would be good to look into at first. Any thoughts and guidance would be appreciated.
