I do magic tricks. I'm pretty good at them too, so much so that I've been active and working for close to ten years. After starting with residences at a few bars around Glasgow, I've since worked for a wide range of companies including the BBC, Glasgow City Council and Brewdog and all manner of weddings and events.
I've also performed several shows around the country and including two solo runs at the Edinburgh Festival:
Declan Dineen Lies for Money: A Magic Show! (2011)
This show was essentially a highlights reel of all the close up work I had been doing in the previous years.
Lies, Trickery and Deceit: Stories from the magic underground (2012)
Whilst still ostensibly a magic show written and performed by me, this was an attempt to give each trick some kind of real world context and to draw on other disciplines like film and music to explore magical ideas.
