Walking Through Ribbon
From MagicPedia, the free online encyclopedia for magicians by magicians.
Walking Through Ribbon is an illusion in which an assistant apparently walks through a ribbon (or rope) which is held on both ends by volunteers.
- "Walking through a Rope" in Dunninger's Tricks - Unique (Advertised in Sphinx, November 1918) - an examined rope or chain is secured at each end to an upright post standing some feet apart. The performer retires well behind the suspended rope or chain, then advances, and, when within reach, he holds in front of the rope (or chain) a handkerchief, which however only serves to conceal the knees. The performer continues to walk forward clean through the rope or chain and when in front of it, the handkerchief is removed.
