Silks & Flags

Silks are the ideal stage props. They are large and colorful but can still be stored in tiny places. Many stage production acts end with a flurry of appearing silks. That is not to say that silks aren't effective close-up. Think about Slydini's silks or the classic vanishing and reappearing silk.

Peki

The Dancing Handkerchief by PekiA close-up version of the famed Dancing Handkerchief routine used by many stage magicians. A miniature handkerchief jumps out of a small container, dances, bounces around and walks across a magic wand before going back into it's jewel box. The entire routine happens in your hands while standing.

You will learn the secrets of Peki's invisible thread that makes it much more invisible than other threads even in close up instances where viewers are only a few inches away from the action.

Professionally dubbed into English from German.

Martin Lewis

Sucker Silks by Martin LewisA very commercial routine where all is in the delivery and the script. Martin starts with a lovely Ping Pong ball gag. The main effect is the classic push a white handkerchief into your fist and pull out a red one. The method should be clear to everybody even though Martin will explain the basic mechanism and move. What you learn here are the lines and little bits of business that make this a commercial routine.

Lewis Ganson

The Sympathetic Silks Teach-In by Lewis GansonColorful, visual magic - certainly The Sympathetic Silks is a real classic of effects with silk. Performed by most of the old top-of-the-bill magicians on the variety stages around the world, it can be just as big a hit today as it was then. From a program dated 1926, we see that Houdini performed it in his full evening show - he often declared that this was his favorite trick. Chris Charlton opened his show with it; Cecil Lyle featured it; Jane Thurston performed it beautifully in her spot in the Thurston Show and it was certainly a masterpiece in the hands of Horace Goldin.

This was part of the...

D. Angelo Ferri

Slydini's Production Silks by D. Angelo FerriSlydini used to open his stage act with this routine.

Slydini's Production Silks is a routine he cared deeply about. This is an opening stage effect. (He used to say: "If you wait too long the silks will get stale".) The magician shows his hands empty then picks up a silk from the seat of a chair. The silk is displayed and placed on the back of the chair. The magician reaches into the air and produces a second silk, which is also placed on the back of the chair. Two more silks are produced from the air and then all four silks are picked up. These silks multiply into a beautiful 'fountain...

D. Angelo Ferri

Silk in Apple by D. Angelo FerriDennis writes:
This is Slydini's version of the Silk in the Apple. He told me he performed it on Cuba television in the 1950's. When he walked through the streets of Havana people recognized him and came up to saying "The apple... the apple...".

The lessons here are the Slydini's approach to handling the device that makes the routine possible, the head, hand movement, which is the same movement he used in his Paper Balls Over The Head, and his Helicopter Card. This routine will give the student a greater insight into the natural mechanics of the hand, how those natural mechanics can be...
