Control their power!

A fascinating demonstration of strength- or lack of it! An unbelievable exhibition of magical powers!

This amazing mystery is one that your audience will be talking about for a long time to come! It is a smaller version of the famous Light and Heavy Chest, the trick that stopped a revolution! (See History and Trivia below)

And it is so easy to operate! Display the box to your audience. Set the box on a table. Ask a member of the audience to join you for the Light and Heavy experiment. Let him lift the box- he can do it easily. Mention that you have the ability to take his strength away, merely by possessing some personal item of his. Let him hand you any item from their pocket- a ring, a coin, a handkerchief. Place the item inside the box, and close it up. Now when he tries to lift the box, it's REALLY heavy! It's like his strength is gone! Of course, after you open the box again and return the item, he is now able to easily lift the box!

This is a beautiful piece of quality apparatus. No assistant or stooge is needed- you use a real person selected from your audience. You can show the box freely from all angles, so you can do this one surrounded.

Performance Ideas   Performance Ideas:

You can also use this presentation: after explaining that some items appear much lighter than they actually are, ask the spectator to lift the box. It's hard for him to do it- the box seems really heavy! Now, explain that maybe it's what's inside the box that makes it so heavy. Open the box, and take out a single feather! Close the box, and NOW the spectator can lift it with no problem!

  • Light and Heavy Box

History of this magic effect   History and Trivia:

In 1856, the famous French magician Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin (the father of modern day magic and the inspiration for Houdini's stage name) was called upon by the French government to help avoid a possible revolution in French-occupied Algeria. A majority of the native Algerians believed that their shamans had great power, more power perhaps than the French soldiers. To convince them that France was even more powerful, Robert-Houdin put on a magical performance that included his newest illusion, the Light and Heavy Chest. By showing the Algerians that a Frenchman could lift the chest when no one else could, he frightened his audience into believing that there would be no use in rising up against the French occupation.
