Leeds Magician Kristian Treen: Why He Performs Magic
Updated: Nov 14, 2019
I was interviewed recently and was asked a great question: why do you perform magic? Usually, people ask how I got started with magic. But I think the why, rather than the how, is a lot more interesting so I've listed my main 5 motives for doing what I do.
1. I LOVE MAKING PEOPLE FEEL HAPPY
We live in a hectic, fast-paced world. A million thoughts flash through our heads every second. Magic allows people to unplug. When people become invested in a piece of magic, for that moment, everything else is forgotten. All the worries, anxieties and stress, that clutter peoples heads is wiped. They become engulfed in beautiful moment of wonder. As humans, I think we need moments like these. To laugh like little kids at something that we didn't expect and can't explain. Making people happy, however brief it may be, is the main reason I love performing magic.
2. THE AUDIENCE
I've performed for thousands of people all over the UK and beyond. I've got to meet so many cool, amazing and pretty famous people. It's the audience that make magic what it is. Without the audience, there is no magic.
3. THE BUZZ OF PERFORMING
One of my philosophies is to find what scares you and then do it. Performing magic scares me. That's why it feels so good to do it. As humans, I feel we become accustomed to comfort. We become attracted to the easy option. Performing magic forces me to step outside my comfort zone. The rush you get when performing is one of the best feelings there is.
