Who is he?
Kyle Purnell has been performing the art of magic for the last decade and a half. He lives to be a unique force in the magic community, creating practical methods and engaging effects with the close up worker in mind, with some of his current creations gaining notoriety from some of the most well respected names in magic.
This lecture is all about the concept of method. What do you prioritize as a method? What are you willing to sacrifice to make the magic happen? Is there a such thing as a perfect method?
Kyle will delve deep into these questions by teaching his underground routines, methods, and discoveries that he uses at paid gigs, residencies, and to floor magicians at conventions. It’s by no coincidence that every single one of these routines is completely gimmick free!
