|When Bill Black began developing as a performer, he realized
that performers quickly were placed in pigeon hole type categories.
From his early days, he sought to be an individual that was
less in a category and more into meeting audience and producer
He studied both performing methods and techniques and
the business and technical aspects of show production. In
doing this, he became adept at tailoring performances to
specific target audiences in widely varying performing areas.
He specialized in the different aspects of theatrical
magic. His work produced a lecture on performing magic that
he delivered from coast to coast, numerous publications
of magical effects in publications for conjurors and awards
for originality of method and performance.
He also developed presentations in the use of humor in
business presentations and using personality types in determining
job choices. From this work, he also developed his problem
solving techniques through paradigm analysis.
His use of poetry reveals some ideas of the changing American
West and its effect of American society. He is emphasizing
American values and ideals as expressed through stories
of the American West and its characters.
The combination of these elements provides a unique combination
of entertainment, enlightenment and positive affirmation.
