Magic Around the World is a fascinating look at world culture through the medium of entertainment. Jim tells of different countries with different cultures, and in each instance creates a scenario where objects appear, disappear, transform and change. Three French loops of ropes magically link together. A Russian Gypsy tells someone's fortune. A Indian Snake basket holds a sudden surprise for a young audience member. An African legend about a magical tribal watering hole comes to life. A volunteer magically passes through two ropes with the aid of an ancient Chinese coin. Audience members will actuallly learn how they can perform an amazing magic trick using Australian boomerangs. There's lots of fun and lots of amazement as young and old alike are bedazzled by wonderful storytelling and mind-bending magic.
In Magic Around the World, Jim uses magic tricks to weave a story line around world cultures. Each routine tells of a different land and people, and something about their customs and culture or history. Jim shares modern artifacts, a bit of ancient lore, blending folk tales and fantasies from other lands into wonderful new stories about how people are different, yet basically the same. As always, there is a lot of comedy and a lot of audience participation.
