About the Artist
At the age eight, Scott Jameson, with the help of a stack of library books, taught himself how to juggle and perform countless magic tricks. In high school he participated in the theater program and competed in the dramatic speaking league.
While attending workshops in comedy, mime, movement, improvisation, dance, etc. at Maine’s Celebration Barn Theatre Scott discovered that the usual notion of what a “magic show” was could be replaced with something far more creative and compelling.
Contact: The Magic of Communication Grades K-8
Contact is a curriculum based assembly program which explores the vital role communication plays in students’ ability to express themselves, work with others, and explore the world around them.
Express: Featuring juggling, mime, and the performance of an ancient Aboriginal instrument, the opening routines are a whirlwind of movement, color, and music. Topics explored in this part of the program: How is music used to convey emotions and tell stories? How can you communicate without speaking?
Work: In one of the many interactive parts of the program the audience learns how to applaud, laugh, and say ‘Thank You’ in American Sign Language. Later a volunteer from the audience is invited onstage to perform an astonishing feat of magic while receiving instructions entirely in Spanish.
Explore: In the final routines Scott uses spectacular illusions to illustrate how innovations in technology, from the printing press to the radio, have allowed mankind to communicate over vast distances in space and time.
