By using simple gestures of both attention and distraction, Dehn will show how to reshape, close and refill an empty drink's can; make
three different playing cards become one; show how solid objects can become penetrable; and demonstrate how to make someone disappear in a box. The class will look at simple objects (and techniques) in an attempt to create new uses for them and to evaluate their potential for magic.
