Cabaret Asrah Levitation Plans


Effect:

The magician invites his assistant to lay down upon a low level couch and slowly sends her into a hypnotic trance. She closes her eyes and he covers her entire body with a cloth shroud. The girls profile is clearly visible through the shroud. The magician stands to one side of the girls body and with a few mystical passes of his hand her body slowly starts to levitate and rise off the couch. Higher and higher her body is seen to float until her body is clear of the couch. Her body is floated around the stage and around the performer. The shroud then descends back down to the couch and the cover is removed to reveal the girl still asleep until awoke from her floating trance. Alternatively if working in theatre once the girls floating body has cleared the couch, stage curtains may be pulled in front of the couch or the couch taken completely off stage and at the magicians command the floating body under the cloth maybe made to vanish and the girl can reappear at the back of the theatre to the surprise of the audience.
