Eugene Burger


In questa puntata di #VERGOGNA Giuseppe Quattrocchi (@quixo_97) e Luca Marzari (@classiclooca) ci hanno parlato di Eugene Burger. Nato l’1/06/1939 a Chicago (Illinois) fu un grande prestigiatore professionista. Si laureò in teologia e insegnò per molto tempo religioni e filosofia all’università. Nel 1976 insieme al suo socio Erik Counce fondò la “Spirit Theatre Company”. Insieme a quest’ultimo scrisse anche uno spettacolo e la stesura durò circa 20 mesi. Durante questo periodo capì che quel mondo gli piaceva molto e decise di voler diventare un mago professionista. Infatti, nel 1977, all’età di 38 anni, lasciò il suo lavoro da insegnante universitario per dedicarsi a tempo pieno alla prestigiazione, passione che aveva fin dall’età di 10 anni. Nell’ambiente magico non fu un grande creatore di effetti, però, rielaborò, rendendo completamente suoi, molti giochi già esistenti. Fu anche un grande esponente della “Bizzarre Magick”. Infatti, dato il suo aspetto e la sua voce profonda, fu sempre un personaggio molto riconoscibile. Morì, a causa di un cancro, il 09/08/2017.All’interno delle sue opere è contenuta molta teoria magica e, nel 2012, finse un premio FISM speciale appositamente per quest’ultima. Sono molti gli argomenti che tratta nei suoi scritti, alcuni esempi sono l’utilità di avere uno script oppure l’importanza della pratica in magia.Mi raccomando non mancate alla diretta di Giovedì sul profilo di @talking_magic alle ore 21:00.

Eugene Burger

Face2Face with David Peck

Eugene Burger Eugene and I talk about magic as a “way”, storytelling, how words have hypnotized us, why we all need to wake up and why mystery is really the problem. Biography He's amazed and delighted audiences from Las Vegas to Tokyo. As Stagebill magazine proclaimed, Eugene Burger is "universally recognized as perhaps the finest close-up magician in the world." "Close-up magic" is just that: magic performed right under your nose, where everyone becomes part of the show. And with Eugene Burger it is an unforgettable experience, for as the Chicago Reader noted in an unprecedented eleven-page cover story about him, "Burger adds something extra." His warmth and humor are captivating and his magic is simply amazing. By definition, magicians are pretty special people, but Eugene Burger is considered exceptional even by other magicians. He has written fifteen best-selling books for the trade, starred in eight instructional videos, lectured extensively to magicians' groups in over a dozen countries, and his writings have been translated into several languages. His deep understanding of the psychology and philosophy behind the magic have won him international accolades, cover stories in conjuring magazines, and four awards from the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood. But as much as he loves discussing magic with fellow performers, Eugene's true passion is bringing mystery and enchantment to the public, and at this he is unparalleled. His special presence has led to numerous television appearances in Great Britain, Canada, Belgium, Finland and Japan, and on such highly acclaimed shows as The Art of Magic on PBS andMysteries of Magic on The Learning Channel. He's been profiled twice on CNN. During the past several years, Eugene has been a featured speaker for top executives of such major companies as Coca-Cola, Williams-Sonoma, Unisys and Pottery Barn, as well as top business schools including Wharton, and the graduate schools of business at the Universities of Chicago and Maryland. His talk, "How Magicians Think," applies his special understanding of deception and perception to the corporate world. When the leading international trade journal Magic magazine compiled its list of the one hundred most influential magicians of the twentieth century, Eugene Burger was included for his ability to "arouse feelings of astonishment, as well as a host of other indescribable sensations." Find out why this engaging entertainer is in constant demand for private parties, corporate functions and special events. Discover for yourself what the Chicago Tribune hailed as the "delightful excitement" that is uniquely Eugene Burger.
