Who and where?
Ideas and effects:
Making Contact - Harnessing the power of touch
Susceptible - The spectators eyes are covered with your fingertips. Despite them being able to feel your fingers, they feel touches on the back of their neck and head.
Relax - A spectator sits down and closes their eyes, you are watched by a group of other spectators. You stand well away from the spectator on the chair and you ask the spectator to remain quiet and in a moment you will ask them a very important question. You silently stroke your shoulder a few times. You then ask the spectator if they felt anything, the comments that they felt you stroke their shoulder, despite you being nowhere near them.
Distant Touch - Standing well away from the spectator, you gesture towards them and they feel you touch them.
Focus - One on One, the spectator feels something pushing them from behind, despite your hands being in full view.
Connected - An 'experiment' in paranormal communication that takes an unplanned turn. A lighthearted attempt at making contact with the spirit goes off on a diagonal as things leave the performers control.
The Crying Child - A disturbing performance, centered around the spirit of a young girl.
Visual occurrences - not effects on their own, but ideas to weave into existing routines.
Burn on - A dead match lights just by willing it to.
Ghost Glass - A borrowed finger ring is placed inside a small glass as an impromptu spirit bell. At any time the ring is seen to move and shake inside.
Unaware - Events occurring that you are not aware of. The power of ignorance.
If you like this kind of magic, you WILL like Shivers!
