Thanks Todd

I've been on a crusade to elevate the art and have magic accepted and recognized as a performing art and not just on the next to lowest rung of the entertainment ladder barely above mimes and balloon twisters (some balloon twisters work far surpasses what some "magicians" are presenting)

Rocco is a good example, think about your favorite performers and why you like them and what makes them great?

Check out

It amazes, makes you think and feel and gives more than it takes

Not too sure I can fully agree with your assessment, Vick. There were several things presented in the act that made no sense as far as relating to the theme (which I took to be his relationship with the girl in the picture). At times he was simply taking something out of his vest, doing a few tricks, and then putting it back. I really expected to see the girl in the picture suddenly wearing the pearls and the scarf; otherwise what's the connection?

I think if you're going to go the artistic route, then for that bit everything needs to refer to and strengthen the story line. Your audience should never have to strain to figure out how any portion of the act (such as an acrobatic candle flame) fits with the theme. In the case of this video, I think he did not fully accomplish that.
