Joshua Jay to Lecture at Ring 50 - Aug 2

Joshua Jay has been called magic’s Renaissance man by MAGIC Magazine. It’s not hard to see why: he is a performer, lecturer, author, and photographer of all things mysterious.
His performance style is completely unique: he performs with ordinary, borrowed objects, causing them to twist, bend, appear, and vanish at will. At only seventeen years old Joshua Jay was crowned world champion for close-up magic at the World Magic Seminar, and he is now regarded as one of the leading creative forces in the magic world.
Joshua does plenty of things that will make you reconsider what you think you know. His main performance style is close-up. Coins, bottles, and borrowed hundred-dollar bills, defying expectations in countless ways. But his passion is cards. (“I’m up to two packs a day,” he says.) Not your uncle’s card tricks, mind you. These are head-turning, jaw-dropping pieces of strange that have garnered Joshua international renown as a card magician extraordinaire.
The lecture will be held at Agudas Achim Congregation, 2908 Valley Drive, Alexandria VA 22302. At 7:30 PM THURSDAY, August 2, 2012.
The lecture is FREE to paid up members of Ring 50. All other magicians and guests must pay $15 at the door.
