Every now and then a magician wants to push the boundaries of what is considered “magic” and break into the thin line between what is real, and what is magic.
Enter Vietnamese magician Tran Tan Phat and his appearance on “Vietnam’s Got Talent” on Sunday.
The “Russian Roulette” Plot has existed for centuries in magic, and though the performance differs often with different risks, the plot is usually the same:
Magician shows risk associated with danger element
Magician has ‘safe’ elements
Magician nor the audience have no idea which element is which, after a random shuffle
But it’s at this point, where every so often, something happens to make this effect go two different ways.
1) Everything is fine, the magician performs the routine safely.
2) They don’t.
