Here's an example. One could do a linking rings routine as strictly a standup watch me do this stuff. Or one could have spectators help you find the special soft spots on one ring and do the links at those spots. Or get a kid up there beside you to follow along with you as you link and unlink the rings. But the kid is trying to do it with two rings that are permanently welded together, so he really cant unlink them. You don't notice he's having trouble unlinking them, and you just congratulate him on what a great job he is doing linking those rings together. The spectator involvement is what makes magic better than other performance arts.

I wrote a BOOK about THAT, a couple of years ago. Well, a good part of the book!

"Watch me do this clever stuff!" acts, don't cut it any more.

COMMUNICATIONS is the "name of the game"!

I'll dig into my resource file and, find find some information on this topic, as soon as I can,
