A beautiful maiden dressed in a long flowing gown lies down on an ornate couch. At the magician's command, the girl starts to slowly
float up into the air! The couch is wheeled away and the lady floats effortlessly as if resting on a cloud. The magician may walk away from the suspended maiden and there is no apparent means of support. A
hoop may even be passed around the girl at any point. The couch is replaced and the maiden floats back down to the couch. She rises up and the magician and assistant take their well-deserved applause.
levitation illusion is a "through the curtain" type of levitation machine. Traditionally named an "aga levitation," this method is perhaps one of the oldest and most sound methods of accomplishing this classic
magic feat. Utilizing machine shop tolerances and a state-of-the-art lifting mechanism, the illusion can be performed virtually anywhere there is a backdrop. Curtains can include the pre-hung drapery of a theatre
stage, or a simple pipe and drape type trade show curtain that the magician can bring himself. Additionally, the illusion has been built with a gooseneck principle so that any ordinary hoola-hoop may be used to sway the
audience from the suspicion that support is coming from the upstage curtain area.
