Hello, my name is Dima, I'm from Israel. Last summer I started (almost by faith) doing street magic. I learned a lot from it and I keep doing it regularly since than (now I'm living in Argentina).

Hope I will receive some help to improve my act in the future from performers around here, and I will be happy to share my ideas with you guys.

Here is a link to my video from doing street magic in Madrid:

See you!

Great video, Dima. I wasn't sure what to expect; these days, when someone says "check out my street magic video" often it's a collection of random close-up tricks performed in public, but on the fly (no table, no crowd build, etc). You were passing the hat, and had a crowd, yet, I didn't see cups and balls, a busker's bag, a hat, etc... It was sort of like a blend of the two street styles.

Also, I liked seeing that you had worked out a street version of cards across. I had wanted to do the same, but didn't know how to handle the palm while surrounded... How did you resolve that, may I ask?

HeY Damian, thanks for your feed back. (you are right, I try to blend close up magic with street magic)

about card across, I cannot do it completely surrounded, so first thing I do is manage people that are behind me (in any case, I want the crowd to look on me and not people around), I simply say, "guys, I look much more beautiful from the front, please take away a few steps"

however I did change the method (at least I have never seen anybody do it before), I use "btm pm", it is almost angle proof and can be done without a table if necessary
you can watch the whole routine here, hope it help:

Thanks for the link, Dima. Having both packets counted to the table makes for a simple solution, actually. That way, you're not stuck holding out. I don't know how I feel about having both packets tabled, tho--I think it's stronger if the two packets are never seen together... Still, it's worth considering. Thanks for sharing.

You've got a good style and I like your look with the vest and tie.

Dima, I loved it. I was so pleasantly surprised by this video. Great feel, tone, and look. You've got such a nice charisma, and that's without hearing you speak! I must say, positively kudos to your Erdnase at 1:26. The proper mechanics for that particular color change are a popular topic in my new lecture, and I constantly see magicians and students of mine performing it wrong. Yours is beautiful. Keep it up sir.
