I´m glad to see that the forums are still going strong, I come back from time to time ( Mainly because I struggle sometimes with my acces to internet) but it´s great to see new users that actually contribute something to the forum with thought provoking posts. I want to bring a topic of discussion to the table about something that I was thinking the other day. Not long ago, I remember discussing about Spectators, about if we need to either adapt to them, or make them adapt to our needs. For example, I for one strongly believe that we need to adapt to our spectators needs, Yes, we can practice a routine time and time again, but I think we should understand that every spectator is different and every one of them have different needs, maybe they don´t believe in magic, maybe they need proof ( potential heckler here ) , or maybe they just need to be enterteined by something quick and flashy. Thats why (In my opinion) we should learn to adapt on the spot to the needs of the spectator or the set (PUA term, means group of people) we can have the basics of the routine right on cue, but sometimes the patter we practiced for that trick doesn´t quite fullfill the spectator needs. On the other hand, I recall a couple of forum members that debated that the ideal for them is to make them ADAPT to us, slowly transform the needs of the laymen into our needs, so that the routine/performance goes right in the path that we want us to be. Every performance is like a road, either we adapt to the road the spectators have, or we make them adapt to our own. So, what do you think about it?
