When to Perform Animal Tarot

By Vanishing Inc. - Wednesday, May 22, 2019


We just launched Animal Tarot — a close-up effect that is perfect for family audiences. As the name suggests, it has a distant cousin of a tarot effect in construction, but with a really neat surprise ending and a fun, family-orientated presentation. But when and where can you perform an effect like this? Let's be honest, it's not the best choice for your next edgy street magic performance, but it really is the perfect trick to perform for family audiences. We can think of three specific situations that makes Animal Tarot worth keeping to hand:

  • Performing for a family at a restaurant or gig. This is the perfect trick for a restaurant table because it's interactive and even kids as young as three-years-old will appreciate the appearance of the chosen animal. For those magicians that perform at family parties or events and find themselves in front of a family - this is the kind of trick that allows you to shine by having something family-appropriate that both the kids and parents can enjoy.

  • Performing for a small group of kids. Gone are the days where you can dumb down magic for younger kids. They are smarter and savvier than ever before and they expect (and deserve) to see magic that is pitched at their level. Animal Tarot is perfect for that because it's a fooler, but uses colorful props, and is interactive.

  • Before a kids show. Some of the best kids magicians like to perform tricks before the show. Animal Tarot is the kind of trick that helps calm a young audience because they can all come in close, stand around a table and join in.

Tricks like Animal Tarot are perfect for keeping in your back pocket (literally or figuratively!) to have ready to go as soon as you need to perform for a young audience.
