This is the most innovative cups and balls routine I have
ever seen! Maestro Leonardo featured the routine in his IBM
competition entry in 2008 in the UK and received a standing
ovation from the audience. There are no moves in the routine
that relate to any other cups and balls effects. The loads are
invisible, and there is virtually no way that they can be
spotted. Anyone who plans to use this routine and is prepared
to put in a lot of work perfecting it, could have a short act
that is suitable for any kind of show venue. The Mediaeval
Cups and Balls routine culminates with the production of water,
a long silk streamer and fire.
All of those who have seen an advance copy of the DVD been very
impressed by the innovative aspect of the methods used.
There is absolutely nothing difficult about the routine at all.
All that is needed is a dedication to achieving perfection, and
if that is the goal, and it is reached, you will have an act
that could take you around the world.
Maestro Leonardo took a year to devise the routine which goes
back to the jugglers and jesters of the distant past and has
created a really novel version of the timeless cups and balls
trick by adapting the usual items involved. No props are
supplied but everything needed can be produced by your local
handyman or made to order for you. The DVD starts with the
original stage performance which was witnessed by an audience of
more than 1500 magicians and then you are taken step-by -step
through the method by Maestro Leonardo who provides a detailed
explanation and teach-in.
