Hi
I'm Luc from Burkina Faso, Africa.
I'm a taiwanese and work as a doctor in Burkina Faso here. Every Thursday we have a consultation in the village. After the consultation I will take the rest of time performing some magic.
For people here, maybe I'm the first magician they have seen in their life, maybe they have never seen things like this before. They enjoy a lot.
In my opinion, I can give them medicines for cure their diseases, but I want to make it further, I can use my magic for cure their heart. If they are happy, these disease will recover more quick.

Here is a video of mine, hope you enjoy it.

I have done some of the magic like hundy500, easy coin trick, cap in bottle.
Can everyone give me some advice that I can do for people here ?
These kind of magic must be visual and direct, less words is better. Because most people in village are uneducated, they cannot understand French (Here is a french speaking country), they speak local language. I cannot show card magic, because they don't know what is playing card. It must be easy to understand, I have done "crazyman handcuff", they can't understand, so I think the magic must be visual like hundy500.
Now I am considering do the magic like PK kit(M5) or Impervious.
Any advice is welcome.
Thank you very much.

Silk magic - make one vanish or a dye tube. And sponge balls, they would really like magic that happens in their hands.

Just be careful with the material selection. Try to stick with fun things, sponge balls and the like.

From my personal experience, sometimes the reactions we get from peoples who have not been exposed to magic entertainment seeing it up close and personal are not what we would expect.

Outstanding! You are to be congratulated on the difference you are making in these peoples' lives. Your video was great. Same simple rope tricks and linking rings might be nice additions.

Watch your back because one day a rumor might spread around as if you are showing sorcery or witchcraft. Some tribes will be danger to you.

You should definitely do sponge balls! 'Cause they are just awesome! People love them! Try to do silk magic, rope magic and some linking rings. If linking rings are too big, then you can try Jay's Sankey's 3 Ring Circus. Smile Also, you might consider Pen Thru Bill (Stealth Pen). It's fairly easy and gets great reactions. Smile
Keep up the good work. Smile And the videos are just great! Love them. Smile
Good luck.

You are very appealing to your audience!
Wonderful! TT appearances and vanishes always
work well. Use your imagination, and use it well.

Also, do take heed about the warnings you've heard.
