Prize Winning Stage Magic (Marc DeSouza)
- Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE
- Category: STAGE MAGIC
- Product Type: VIDEO STREAMING
Marc DeSouza, who has won more magic competitions with his stage acts than probably anyone, and is the first person to ever win the SAM Stage competition more than once (1978 and 1989), performs and teaches three of his audience tested stage routines which have taken him around the world. You are treated to a performance of his manipulative act followed by a detailed explanation of its routines and techniques.
Featured Routines Performed & Explained:
►Ball and Rose Routine: A white rose is plucked from its stem and turns into a white billiard ball, which vanishes and is reproduced as a silk scarf is waved in front of it. There are several more vanishes and reappearances, then the ball changes color. The new red ball now becomes white then red and continues to change several more times. As a finale the red ball becomes a red rose which appears back on its stem.
►The Linking Ring Routine: This is the routine that Marc has used professionally in all of his stage, platform and formal close-up shows. It is a beautifully choreographed three-ring routine with a bonus four-ring sequence.
►Diminishing Cash and Coins: A performance only tribute to the late Fred Kaps. This routine incorporates a shrinking bill sequence and jumbo coin manipulations culminating with a jumbo coin star.
►The Zombie Rose Routine: The finale to Marc's act is a romantic rendition of the classic Zombie routine. A large rose bloom is balanced on your arm, the edge of a scarf, floats between your arms, playfully flies around the scarf and finally vanishes.
Sleights, gimmicks and concepts explained and demonstrated within routines include: Rose Bud, Ball Clip, Silk Roll, Classic Palm, Changeover Palm, Slap Vanish, Hand-To-Hand Transfer, Toss Change, Spin Link, Crash Link, Vernon Link, and many others.
Also taught are several standard billiard ball vanishes, color changes and productions. Dozens of tips on performing a Zombie routine and methods of vanishing it at the end of the routine.
You will also be treated to solid advice on the performance of magic, illustrated by real world examples.
