The Art of Magic



Camilo the Magician’s magic routine contains a lot of familiar tricks, and almost all of them are card-based. That’s not necessarily a bad thing on its own. Every one of his tricks are well-rehearsed, but the self-described “close-up” magic that he performs using a document projector is comprised of slight-of-hand demonstrations that would be much better suited to a street performance than a fringe show. This sentiment was reinforced when the performance ran for only 35 minutes—10 less than the listed 45. Camilo does little to spice up his act and build a rapport with the audience. He’s likeable enough, and presents a few novel variations to tricks that any audience can enjoy, but the magic scene at this year’s fringe is more competitive than usual. There are longer, better acts that I’d recommend you check out before The Art of Magic. While his magic is sound, the artistic presentation in this act is limited. If the crucial part of a routine is how the magician dresses up his illusions, Camilo’s work leaves much to be desired Reviewed by Kevin Pennyfeather.
