Magic like David Blaine and Chris Angel

Spectators in the street amaze, with wonders and effects performed seemingly impromptu. Most people today understand that as street magic. Here crown caps are conjured up in bottles, shoelaces tie themselves, rings wander from the hand into the trouser pocket and cards that have just been drawn suddenly hang on a chain that the magician wears around his neck. Streetmagic is now synonymous with Impromtu magic and stands for the spurred magic on the streets, bars and restaurants. Everyone wants to amaze their colleagues with the simplest of means and conjure up little miracles out of their pockets. 

Street Magic - Once the playground for jugglers

While jugglers and street magicians like Jim Cellini or Gazzo were once referred to as Street Magicians, the term Street Magic is now used for a younger movement that was created by David Blaine, Criss Angel and Dynamo. This has little in common with the busking of earlier times, when artists would go around with their hats after their performance to collect money and earn a living. Today, the stars of the street are paid by sponsors and television stations that are hungry for large numbers of viewers and, in contrast to the street magicians of the past, live in hotels instead of caravans and tents.

The origins of street magic

Already 3000 years ago and more there is evidence of street magicians. Most of the time you entertained the audience with cardsharp tricks or duped them; They skilfully conjured balls under cups and in the end even pulled out lemons or oranges. The cup game is one of the oldest magic tricks ever and almost like a trademark for street performers. There are paintings by Hieronymous Bosch, William Hogarth and Brueghel. And Reginald Scot's book, Discovery of Witchcraft, exposes the feats of some jugglers who sold their skills as miracles in order to rip off viewers.

Magic on the open road

In the summer months, jugglers and street magicians flock to the cities and to festivals again. They are just as present at the Zurich Theater Spectacle as they are at the Lenzburg Juggler Festival and on lake promenades and on busy streets and squares. You set up your juggler tables, take magic ropes and cup games out of your juggler bags and cellini pouches and enchant young and old with the Chinese ring game and cloths that appear out of nowhere.
