  1. Good evening ladies and gentlemens...

    Tonight's event will be a roundtable discussion hosted by award-winning stage magician and manipulator Dan Sperry. Last night, we released Dan's latest contribution here at theory11 - his video on the Gypsy Thread. Tonight is your chance to ask the man himself any question that comes to mind on stage magic, performance, manipulation, development of style, working in magic, hair gel supplies and techniques, or anything else that comes to mind.

    This will be Sperry's first roundtable discussion here on theory11, with past discussions available to listen in the archive. Limit of three questions per member. All questions must be submitted on or before 10:00pm EST. We will hand pick a select group of questions to be asked in the podcast, which will be posted at 11:00pm EST.

    One random member whose question is asked during the podcast will receive a 1-on-1 download of your choice. Looking forward to a great discussion tonight.

    UPDATE : Podcast has been posted. Listen to it now in MP3 format at THIS link.

  7. 1. It's extremely evident from your performance style that you love to keep the audience involved and interested. What techniques do you use to actively involve the audience and keep them interested?

    2. What or who has influenced your unique performing style? Why?

  15. So, magicians each have a different style or type of magic they perform. Weather it is close up, cards, coins, and for you, mostly stage. I have performed a couple performances on stage before and, there is always a feeling. I can't really explain it but it is right as I go on and it is good and nervous at the same time. This motivates me to keep going up on stage and trying to get that feeling of accileration again. Knowing you as such an awesome stage performer that I look up to, I was wondering what inspires you to get back up on stage and do another performance?

    Also, always watching your magic I noticed that you have an interesting performance. The way you dress, the way your movements are compared to alot of other magicians. I find it very clever. What helped you to come up with your "character" on stage, Or should I say the way you perform?

  16. tell us about your biggest turning point/revelation in magic where it changed you style and everything you did
    Does your wife/fiance know any magic?
    what is your favorite theory11 effect?
  17. What do you try to acheive when you perform magic? A magical moment? A showcase in sleight of hand? etc
  18. Why did you choose to put on the persona you use on stage? For example why arent you wearing a frilly little dress.

    What made you make the decision for stage magic?

    Who inspired you to perfom the magic you do now and magic in general.
  19. How important do you think the balance between "going with the flow" and "having a strict path" is for a stage performer? :)
