Clearly Invisible: Magic Up Close with Carl SeigerBy Carl & Maura Seiger
Clearly Invisible… Magic Up Close with Carl Seiger combines illusion, jazz, and storytelling.
While reminiscing about his life as a magician, Seiger invites audiences to find out what's up his sleeves as he performs sleight of hand up close. There is magic, and then there is Magic. Interactive in every sense of the word, "Clearly Invisible" combines illusion, music, and humor to stretch the boundaries of conventional theatre.
Illusions, magic tricks, humor, and storytelling
CARL SEIGER has been working as a sleight-of-hand magician for more than thirty years and has been involved in the world of magic for nearly forty years. He performs nationwide for audiences in a variety of venues ranging from stage and cabaret shows to corporate meetings and private parties. Since 1996, he has personally produced and designed one-man theatrical shows that merge the illusion of theater with the art of magic. These shows have consistently received widespread critical and audience acclaim. In between theater shows, he concentrates on performing at private and corporate events. Carl has now revived these theater shows with a new version of Clearly Invisible...Magic Up-Close with Carl Seiger created and produced specifically for Florida Studio Theatre. Carl is committed to bringing fine magic to the forefront. He taught himself, and specializes in what the trade calls sleight-of-hand magic, a special brand of the mysterious art. He invests countless hours of practice with fastidious attention to detail, always striving to improve. Rarely does a day pass that Carl has not practiced. His magic is not about the flash and dazzle of special effects. Sleight-of-hand is differentiated from other styles primarily by the type of props used (coins, cards, a wine glass, a length of rope) and the performing conditions...(“close-up”) whether it is performed in the audience’s hand, or onstage. Carl is a native of the Berkshires Hills of Massachusetts; he lives on a mountaintop in Tyringham with his wife, Maura, their two cats, Rylie and Francesca, and Kaiser, their Belgian Malinois Shepard. His other interests include reading, music, kayaking, golf, and nature, specifically the cosmos.
RODNEY DUGAS has introduced Carl with his voice for years. He is an actor and antique dealer from Canaan, CT. Rodney and Carl met when Rodney needed to vanish an item for a production of Damn Yankees!
