The Mongolian Pop-Knot by Whit Haydn - Book
This routine works surrounded at a private party, or on the largest stage (Whit has performed this routine for eight thousand people in an amusement park when he was opening for Conway Twitty.)
What makes this routine unique is that every sequence is justified by the patter. It is not a series of unrelated tricks with a piece of rope, but a true routine that has an internal consistency and intelligence that draws the audience in and keeps them involved and interested throughout the performance.
While supposedly explaining to the audience how "that old trick" of cutting a rope and restoring it is accomplished, the magician cuts a rope and ties it back together with a special knot.
The knot "pops" off the rope and the rope is restored. At this point things get more complicated as the magician seems to lose control of events. The rope is cut in three pieces which changes sizes and then are stretched and shrunk back into correct sizes. The three ropes are tied together, the two knots are "popped" off and tossed into the audience, and the rope is shown back together again in one piece. It can even be left for audience examination.
This booklet not only teaches a powerful and entertaining routine that "packs small and plays big" it is a real lesson in magic from a great thinker and performer.
Whit explains what goes into creating a routine, the subtleties of performance and presentation, and the little moves and details that can throw the spectator off and make it impossible for him to figure out the secrets.
You will not only enjoy performing this routine, but learning it will help make you a better magician.
