The New Normal?
As I mentioned in a previous post, The Journal of Performance Magic (www.journalofperformancemagic.org.uk) is currently accepting academic papers that attempt to uncover some of the crucial themes and key issues facing contemporary performance magic in light of COVID-19. The pandemic has had a significant impact on all aspects of life, including the performing arts. This has necessitated a response from performers on finding new ways to engage with their craft and community.
In addition, the Journal would also welcome short responses on the COVID-19 pandemic in the form of statements, provocations, or reflections on practice from performance magicians themselves.
A form has been set up to help collect some of these short responses – you can find it here; https://forms.gle/Jh9wqzn89NEwwSpX8
I hope you can share with us your thoughts on how COVID-19 is affecting your practice.
