Small Changes make a Big Difference

Peter will teach and perform material from his working repertoire with attention to the small details that have a huge impact and the theoretical underpinnings of why those changes matter and why they work.

“Peter Samelson makes magic an art.”
– Dai Vernon

“The theatrical spirit that Samelson infuses into his work is individual and highly effective. All the effects were treated like minor theatrical presentations. Each one was a self-contained three-act play that had an emotional arc and a specific mood. Best of all there wasn’t any evidence of that kind of thinking worn on his sleeve to be admired by the audience. It was rather subtle and all the more powerful for being so.”
– Nick Lewin
