Rope is a wonderful prop. Magicians can use it on stage or close-up. It can do all sorts of things; change colour, change size, it can be cut and then restored, it can be knotted and unknotted in mysterious ways, it comes in different colours, it can be escaped from when tied up even in the most legitimate manner by unsuspecting spectators and is easy to transport. It’s what you call “Plays big, packs small.” There are books, DVD’s and individual props ranging in price from a few dollars to hundreds of dollars. Something for everyone.
These are some photos from Magie Montreal. A blast from the past. Enjoy!
