TRICK EFFECT & ROUTINE: The assistant is brought up to center stage. She is placed in a reclining position on a couch. Then covered with a large cloth. She is commanded to rise. Once she has risen to a height of one foot above the couch, the couch is taken away and the performer walks all around the floating woman. She continues to rise until she is well over the head of the performer. Then she slowly descends until she is level with the performer’s head. Again she begins to rise. This time, the performer takes hold of the cloth and while she is rising, the cloth is whisked away. The woman is gone, vanished right in front of the audience.
