For long time I´ve been developing diferent ways of presentation for this effect. The one I´m going to explain here in detail is one I call “Borges Dream”. After this explanation I will give you some other ideas and presentations, leaving your own imagination and personality free for dressing the effect.
Also, I´m going to explain the method I use for every moment but there is different ways to do the trick depending on the situation. At the end I will explain some other solutions.
The magician gives an spool of thread to an spectator near to him to extract a piece of thread of about 3 meters in lengh. The spectator breaks the thread in small pieces and puting all of them together makes a little ball. Once he finishes, he leaves the little ball on the table.
After a magic blow, very clearly the magician with spectator help, shows the thread restored. Once finished the first effect, the magician transform the thread into powder.
More than another Gypsy Thread routine
Javi Benítez (Facebook), created one of the most baffling Gypsy Thread routine ever. In Gypsy Thread Booklet by Javi Benitez is not only included this routine but a whole historical reference of the routine over the years.
What Juan Tamariz said.
“His Torn and Restored thread is so beautiful and wonderful… what I´ve seen couldn´t have any trick involved. It´s one of those moments of beautiful magic.”
Easy to do.
Benitez is known for his astonishing sleight of hand but in this routine everything is very easy. With no difficult moves. By the way, almost everything is done by the spectator.
Various presentations included.
In this book you can find different ways of doing the routine based in the same principle.
