Doing magic while hindered
ESTHER, 20/03/2013 14:07

Magicians keep a lot of secrets, but here I tell you one of the greatest secrets of all: we can do magic anytime, anywhere, even when we have no props on ourselves. Even while hanging down from an eaves through with both hands...

(Okay, I know, I know, doing magic and hanging down from an eaves through is only possible if you can concentrate instead of being afraid of falling down... nevertheless, it is possible and I will tell you right away how!) There are magic tricks doable through phone and/or without props, but that's not what I'm talking about here: these tricks need an audience.

What I say is that we can do magic when completely alone, with no audience and no props available. A smart magician can practice and present in his head - even without moving his hand (well, he has to hold on to that eaves through...). He thinks his text through, thinks about the moves and their exact places in the flow, when to look here and there, when to smile. If his hands are free, he might even put his mp3 player to good use, and he might listen to the music of his show. He thus fuses with the rythm, the moves, he assimilates them while doing nothing on the surface. But in reality, he roams in the empire of magic.

Repetitio est mater studiorum, says the latin phrase and it is so true for magicians. I do not say that working like this is "just the same", but when you are hindered by the eaves through, you might as well put the time to good use... And most importantly, it works.
