Topic: Lewis' Penrelease
Message: Posted by: James Warren (Feb 24, 2019 11:28PM)
Is anyone familiar with "Penrelease" from Continuation of Miracles? I used to do this 15 years ago and want to do it again but don't have the instructions and can only half-remember how the tie goes. This is the one where the helper stands within a 3-paneled screen, is tied with two ropes (Grandmother's necklace style), and the ends of the ropes are run through holes in the two side panels and held by spectators. When the ropes are pulled, the spectator walks forward, free of the ropes which remain threaded through the panels. Also, the spectator's hands were tied to the ropes with silks, which also come free of the ropes while remaining tied to the spectator's wrists. If you can help me with a reminder of the workings, please PM me. Thanks!

It is called Penelease on page 50 to page 52.

Thanks Bill. I don't have the book but I used to do the routine. Anyway, after racking my brain and experimenting a bit, I finally remembered how to do it!

It might beneficial to write down what you remember for next time.
