FISM award-winner Henry Evans is back to take you on a
guided tour to the other side of illusion – where the
impossible becomes possible and wonderful, surprising
and often humorous things happen. If you enjoyed his
last critically-acclaimed DVD offering, Something More
Than An Illusion, you’ve already had a glimpse into
the whimsical world of Henry Evans. If you haven’t,
you’re in for a rare treat indeed.
Here’s what you’ll see during your journey to the
other side of illusion:
NEEDLE THROUGH DECK – The performer pushes a large,
threaded needle through a playing card box. Not an
impressive feat until the cards are removed and found
to have no holes or any other evidence of the needle
and thread passing through them. The perfect opener!
RISKY BET – A packet of cards is shuffled by the
spectators as the performer places some paper currency
into a glass as a bet against failure. The cards are
divided into small piles and one is freely chosen.
When the value of the cards in the selected packet are
added, they are found to match the amount of money in
DOLLAR AND QUARTER – You won’t believe your eyes as a
borrowed quarter and dollar bill are visibly fused
together to form one of the strangest objects your
audience is ever likely to see. The two components are
then magically separated and returned to their owners!
FLIPPER CARD – A selected card visibly vanishes from
between two Queens and is found in the card box which
has been in plain sight. One of the most visual card
effects you’re ever likely to see!
NEW K.O. ROPE – The performer cuts a length of rope
into two pieces and then restores them but that is
just the beginning of a startling sequence of magical
events. Without any further cutting, the rope becomes
two lengths again and then suddenly multiplies into
three and then four lengths. The performer then
restores it back to two and then back to one. For the
surprising ending, the rope is in four lengths again
and each is handed out for thorough examination.
MENTAL POWER – The performer correctly divines a
spectator’s thought-of card and then subsequently
shows that the spectator had no other choice as every
other card in the deck is now blank!
KEEN SENSE OF TOUCH – Another impossible location as
the performer finds two signed cards in a deck
shuffled by the audience in a transparent bag while
his eyes are covered. A great stand-up card effect for
any size audience!
FINDING THE ACES – Imagine being able to locate the
four Aces in an instant from a deck that’s been
completely shuffled by the spectators. A very
practical method for an utterly impossible effect.
TEN EXACT CUTS – The full details of Henry’s
masterpiece, the finale of his FISM act, finally
revealed! The performer cuts a deck of cards into ten
packets in just a few seconds and then shows one card
in the first pack, two in the second and so on to the
tenth. For the dumbfounding finish, the deck is
shuffled and cut into three packets which are shown to
be the three remaining suits – in exact numerical
