[A complete show with seven, constantly increasing effects!!!]
From the large-scale illusions of the 19th century called Spirit Cabinets, "small ghost cabinets" gradually developed in the form of elaborately crafted boxes that were suitable for performance in the salon and on stage.
These cabinets were offered in different versions, with different routines and with different names such as Sefalaljia Box or Haunted Box, later also as Deans Box.
After a long and intensive study of the different versions and routines, we have created a summary of the most inexplicable effects for you and developed a fantastically beautiful prop that you will enjoy for a long time and that will leave your audience speechless at the end of your show!
The effects are each incredibly powerful in their own right, involving the audience in the action and gradually building up to truly incredible magic!
It all starts quite harmlessly: They show a box (approx. 20x20x30 cm). The box has a lid and two large holes on the sides.
Inside the box is a glass, next to it is a sponge ball. You briefly close the lid of the box, open it again and the audience sees that the ball is now in the glass.
Did a ghost put it there? Of course, you can have the glass and the ball examined immediately, then put the glass back in the box.
Now a spectator draws a card, which is then shuffled back into the deck. You don't have to force anything for this, the spectator can take what he wants!
After the card is lost in the deck, place the pack of cards in the box as far away from the glass as possible. The lid of the box is closed briefly and opened again, the spectator's card stands upright in the glass, the deck lies next to the glass in the box. If you want, the spectator card can also be signed, which increases the effect even more!
You remove the glas from the box and reveal a rope and a ring. Deposit the ring in the box, give the rope ends together so that you hold the two ends in your hand while the middle hangs down. In this way you lower the rope into the box, pull it up again - and the audience sees that the ring has penetrated the rope and is hanging in the middle of the rope. The ring is taken off the rope and the rope is now stretched across the box. Two spectators hold the ends of the rope on the left and right. The magician lowers the ring into the box and it is threaded onto the rope at the same moment, which the spectators are welcome to see for themselves!
You give this rope and a second rope of a different colour to a spectator to examine. The ropes are put together, each spectator holds the two ends of his rope. You put the middle of the ropes into the box and add the ring. One second later the ring is hanging between the ropes! That blows the spectators away!
But the routine continues! The two centres of the ropes go into the box, the spectators hold the ends. The magician opens a small flap on the top of the box, pulls out the rope middles and shows that they have interpenetrated and the ropes are hanging into each other like two loops. No sooner have the audience recovered from this effect than the absolute climax follows, which looks so magical that it is hard to believe!
The rope centres come into the box from the left and right and are pulled out again a little through the small flap on the top of the box. The spectators hold the ends of the ropes. At your command, the two spectators pull the ends taut. This pulls the two rope centres into the box, penetrating each other and hanging into each other in a U-shape! This climax, which the spectators perform almost without your intervention, blows everyone away!
