If you’ve got a dark routine that can use a mysterious revelation, you may like Andrew Mayne’s "Stain." Meanwhile, "Shiv" can add some definite tension to your act...
-Wayne Kawamoto, Magic.About.comFull Review
Andrew Mayne (creator of Ghost Vision, Gut Buster and Ghost Ink) presents a frightening, visual way to reveal a word or image to your audience.
The performer presents a mysterious dark substance. He alludes to the idea that it was acquired through nefarious means. A spectator is invited to choose a word or the name of a famous deceased person (using a force taught on the DVD)
A blank card is placed into a plastic container along with the substance. It begins to stain the card and form the word or the thought of image. The bag containing the revelation is given to the spectator to keep as a dark memento.
Stain can be performed close-up and on stage. Stain uses household materials and can be prepared in minutes.
WARNING: This DVD also includes Andrew Mayne's short film: The Stain. It contains disturbing imagery and is not intended for younger audiences.shiv
shiv: 1.). A makeshift weapon
2.). A deadly game player with a sharp object
Based upon Andrew Mayne's Stab'd effect. Shiv is a disturbing presentation of Russian Roulette using a sharpened pencil.
One sharpened pencil goes into one of four envelopes - the others containing harmless straws. A victim is given a totally free choice and must eliminate three of the envelopes by stabbing their own body!
The final envelope is revealed to contain the deadly shiv!
Shiv is easy to perform and under the performer's complete control. No special props or gimmicks are required. It can be performed impromptu.Running Time
