Storyline

In a room filled with jugglers' properties of enormous size a prestidigitateur dressed in eccentric costume enters with his assistant. The servant, believing that he would be comfortable in an armchair, sits down in it, but finds that it conceals a bucket of water, in which he falls. The juggler brings a large empty cask and puts it upon a table and fills it up with several pails of water. He leaps into the cask to take a bath, but he is bitten and hastily gets out.

Interesting Magic Concept
14 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Once again the director puts on a show for an audience. There is one man and an assistant (sort of). The main focus is a huge barrel. The men put water in the barrel. When they turn it over, livestock comes out. There are various sleights of hand and shifting properties. It is fast moving and fun. The livestock thing is something we have not seen before.
