Resting onstage is a simple chair. The magician entices his assistant to sit in the chair and then covers her and the chair
with a large cloth covering. Suddenly the magician whips the cover away and his assistant instantaneously vanishes!
The DeKolta Chair was popularized a number of years ago by the late Doug Henning on one of his early
television specials. When performed correctly, it is a shocking vanish of a human being. Ideally the illusion is performed where a trap door in the stage floor is available. Others have performed the effect where the
assistant "sneaks out" behind the covered chair and through an upstage curtain. The illusion can also be performed on top of various illusion bases. Price for the chair alone is $2500 FOB. DeKolta Chair with Deceptive
Steps and Table (elsewhere on our website) $7500 FOB.
