Helloe Fellows,

First of all I want you to know that dan Sperry post a picture on his Instagram about his free show 2018-2019.
That's the link: http://vimeo.com/dansperryofficial/strangemagic

I saw the show and he did a suspension with 3 persons.

Do you know the name of this suspension and do you have any reference for it, cause I want to build it.

Last year I saw another version of it and I want to put something like that in my show.

Plus, do you think I can do it with spectator or it's all with assistants needed ?

I will post a picture of the illusion.

Thanks a lot guyz!

Well.... you can’t build it cause it’s not yours to build!

Kyle Knight is the inventor. I know Tim Clothier has built at least one of them.

Looks like it requires a harness, so not possible to use a spectator.

The only suspensions I know that can use a spectator is Abbott's Super X levitation, and the chair suspension.

Wow ! Thanks a lot for your respond guys !
I will cheek for this.

There's an Encyclopedia of suspensions and Levitations by Bruce Armstrong.
I will try to find it and maybe I can build something out there.

The Knight Suspension will not be in the encyclopedia but hopefully it will give you some ideas that will work for you!

Do you have Jim Steinmeyers book Technique & Understanding? The audience member suspension in that book is probably the closest to the Knight Suspension that you can build yourself. Plans are in the book.

Is there any videos of Steinmeyer's audience member suspension?

Hey folks, thanks for the plug and shoutout d.jodoin88! Hope you guys liked the video stream -- as already stated yes that cannot be done with an audience member, it is all stooges or stage crew for the knight suspension. Kyle/Tyler gave me permission to re-design his suspension for my vision (that is my sole interpretation / presentation of his suspension) by combining it with the assembly style of a blaney ladder suspension and is exclusive to my show.

I'll be honest.. Fellas, it was looking great. But.. I could've used a little more cowbell.
Kind Regards
