Kenton Knepper Homecoming Lecture

Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at 7:00pm at the Iowa Magic Shop

The Iowa Magic Shop is delighted to announce a rare lecture by our friend Kenton Knepper!

After a several year hiatus Kenton will be lecturing again in Cedar Rapids! Those who have attended in the past KNOW what this means. Kenton pulls out all the stops when he returns home and shares his vast knowledge with us.

For those who may not know Kenton, he grew up in Cedar Rapids cutting his teeth performing close-up, stage and Illusion shows throughout the Midwest. Then in the early 80’s the Phoenix area called his name and he has resided there ever since.

Kenton’s creations are studied by expert performers around the globe, with Kenton’s fifty plus books, CD’s and DVDs on magic and mentalism; Kenton is possibly best known for his trilogy of work known as Wonder Words, his Kolossal Killer as well as Kenton’s Dual Reality principle.

Kenton’s influence has been seen on MTV, CBS, RTE in Ireland, NHK in Japan, the Magic Circle in London, at Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac Benefit Concerts, in Las Vegas and much more.

Kenton has influenced the likes of David Blaine, Derren Brown, Doug Henning, Keith Barry, Jeff McBride, Doc Eason, J.C. Wagner, Paul Harris, Luke Jermay, Jay Sankey and countless others.

Kenton has been awarded the Creativity in Mentalism Award in 2008, the rare Andruzzi Award of which less than ten have ever been given, and the Society of American Magicians (#248) 2006 Magician of The Year.

As a side note you may enjoy that Kenton is also an accomplished Musician as well. Check out his work with the Tibetan Bowls at www.bowlvana.com.

Nate Staniforth – Real Magic Tour

Saturday, February 3, 2018 @ 8:00pm at the Englert Theatre
Ticketing: $20 General Admission / $15 Seniors / $10 Students + Fees
Purchase tickets at the Box Office or Online      Please Note: This event is not recommended for children under 13.
“Just caught a Nate Staniforth show,” one reporter tweeted after opening night, “and now I have no idea what to believe about anything ever again.” No rabbits. No top hats. No smoke machines. Nate abandons the ubiquitous style-without-substance bravado so often associated with magic and appeals instead to the imagination and intellect of his audience. The journey is wild, visceral and immediate, and like all great art, encourages us to open our minds and hearts, and see the world in new ways.

“When you’re young, it’s easy to be amazed,” says Nate Staniforth. “As you get older, that experience of astonishment gets harder and harder to find. Good magic isn’t about deception. It’s about trying to see things the way you saw them before they became ordinary.”

For over a decade, Nate has toured the US college circuit as one of the busiest working magicians in the country. He’s given a TED Talk, lectured at the world-famous Oxford Union, and on January 16th, 2018 the Harry Potter-famed Bloomsbury Publishing will release Nate’s memoir in bookstores worldwide. Here is Real Magic follows Nate’s evolution from obsessed wunderkind to disillusioned wanderer, and tells the story of his rediscovery of astonishment—and the importance of wonder in everyday life—during his trip to the slums of India, where he infiltrated a 3,000-year-old clan of street magicians.
