UK Magician Dynamo says traditional magic shows like those of David Copperfield and Siegfried & Roy helped magic but it is time to bring stage magic “up to date” and change “what people see as the stage magic show.”
He is moving from the television series Magician Impossible arena and stage venues and looks to ‘reinvent’ live magic.
Dynamo told reporters at a recent Edinburgh International Television Festival that he is going to hit the road.
“This is the final series of Magician Impossible. I think everyone wants to see me do it live and I think the possibilities in the live arena for magic is open for someone like myself to step into,” he said.
He added: “The magic shows we think of on the stage and in theatres are David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy. What they did for magic was phenomenal but now it’s time to reinvent [stage shows], and to bring up to date what people see as the stage magic show. I will have a go at that.”
By “have a go,” Dynamo means he will attempt or try to do something. “Have a go” is metric for “try, attempt or endeavor.”
