Tango Lecture review Genii magazine
IF YOUVE FOLLOWED COIN MAGIC in the last decade or so,
youve certainly run across Mr. Tango of Tango Magic
in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The man behind TangoMr.
Tango himselfis Marcelo Insua. Precisely a year ago
I reviewed a collection of his card magic focusing on his
three approaches to the ACAAN plot.
December, Mr. Insua joined the folks at Murphys for
a three-hour lecture in their At the Table series.
All three of those ACAAN routines are included in this lecture,
so if you like ACAAN routines but skipped that disc, youre
already nearly $20 ahead before you consider anything else
in this download.
quite a lot more here besides those routines, though, to the
tune of magic with coins, silks, bottles, and even an ungimmicked
lecture opens with a performance of a bottle production and
moves directly into two card routines. The first is an Invisible
Deck routine using a regular pack, and the next is a
hands-off approach to ACAAN he calls Invisible Cards.
This approach is a slight variation on the specific conditions
of ACAAN, but its certainly effective and often results
in a completely clean outcome in which the spectator can remove
the cards from the box and count the cards themselves.
The next section is a set of card locations at a given number,
all of which are slightly different in effect but which involve
impossible conditions such as spectator shuffling before and
after the selection. All of these are based on a clever fundamental
principle (attributed to Martin Gardner) that has been previously
applied in various contexts from cards to book tests, but
which Mr. Tango explores thoroughly in his own adaptation.
This devious principle enables you to perform an impressive
range of effects.
nearly an hour, the subject of coin magic is finally broached
and a four-phase Coins Across is the first routine presented.
The tool being used here, which won a FISM invention award,
is a T.U.C. Coin (Tango Ultimate Coin) which combines
multiple gaffed coin principles to allow exceptionally clean
and easy handling.
most deceptive element is a hands-off vanish of a coin from
a pair cleanly placed in the spectators hands. Additional
routines with the T.U.C. include a coin penetration through
a card into a glass, an upward penetration of a coin through
a bill, Matrix routines with and without cards,
and even a fingertip Coins Across.
The application of the
Ambitious Card plot to a marked coin in a stack
of coins is a unique effect with four ungimmicked coins (and
a little secret preparation).
A standard application of a boon-writer allows for a card-at-number
prediction, which is then followed with some additional tips
on using the gimmick. An impromptu ACAAN follows, along with
a helpful tutorial on Mr. Insuas favorite Double Lift.
those interested in parlor effects, Mr. Insuas segment
on silk magic with a reel will be especially interesting.
A couple of familiar effects are included, such as a penetration
(through his arm instead of a mike stand), and the untying
knot. The striped print on the scarf allows for an interesting
effect in which the lines change from horizontal vertical
while the silk seems to be held still. Mr. Insuas reel
is sold with a large scarf with the appropriate design.
Matches is a close-up routine using two matchsticks
on which dots are inked by the spectator. A short sequence
of double Paddle Moves allows for an intriguing series of
vanishes and reproductions. Shared Dreams is Mr.
Insuas variation on Alan Shaxons Confabulation.
This approach uses a set of three sealed envelopes tied with
a ribbon, which is placed in view before the trick begins.
revelations come from a sealed envelope that is in view throughout
the process. You dont have quite the comfortable cover
than you do in the original handling, but this variation certainly
seems more impossible due to the visibility of the envelopes
from the get-go. As with the original, this can be performed
in almost any sized venue.
lecture concludes with a showpiece of a Cups and Balls routine
that is a combination of standard moves and loads and a clever
Chop Cup technique using a drinking glass. This routine is
designed for a formal setting where the performer can be seated,
but some aspects of it could be adapted for more casual or
over three hours of content that runs the gamut from micro-magic
to parlor and stage work, this is an easy recommendation for
the price. Im a fan of the live lecture genre, which
allows for a truly unvarnished look at the material as well
as the creators as they interact with the hosts. As it became
trendy to create DVDs with trailers and effects that mimic
those of feature films, it is refreshing to see a relatively
low-tech approach to sharing magic that removes the filters
of editing, photographic manipulation, and multiple takes.
In this kind of setting, the magic has to speak for itself.
Mr. Insuas certainly does....
