On the stage, the platform or the party’s lounge floor there is a table, any kind, maybe it could be borrowed from the place where we’re working. For a better appearance the table could be decorated or not.
The artist comes in form one of the sides, he brings a box with a bow (it’s a big gift), it hangs FROM ONLY ONE HAND THAT HOLDS IT FROM THE BOW. When he gets to the center of the stage he shakes it, trying to guess the content and at the same time showing that is very light.
He put it on the table and with some magic passes THE BOX BEGINS TO OPEN AND SUDDENLY A BEAUTIFUL GIRL COMES OUT MAGICALLY, GIVING A SURPRISE TO THE AUDIENCE.
Paper or nylon could be used to cover the box. This routine has infinite variations, it all depends on the personality of the magician (if he is serious, comic, etc.) and the kind of party in which he decides to act.
The system used
It consists of an ingenious gear of frontal charging, that allows us to load even our own weight. The back does the main force, and with this system the gravity point is displaced and this allows us to load weight without making the effort.
The gear wraps the artist back and has two arms that are inserted in a small platform. This platform is placed inside the box and the assistant sits on it, in this way the platform and the assistant are inside the box, bag package or the thing used to represent the gift.
Previously is necessary to make two holes in the box in order to put the arms’ gear in the platform. Doing this the artist can walk with the girl seated on the platform without using his hands to carry the box.
Once the gift is placed on the table, the magician will open furtively his jacket, will make a step back and the arms will get off the platform, going back and staying hide under the jacket.
After this the girl appears and the magician can go on with the show.
