Hi,
Is there any way you can make center tears or peeks into an invisible compromise?

The only way I could imagine is to do it pre-stage.

Please forgive my ignorance, but what is an invisible compromise?

Elliott,

An invisible compromise is something ALL politicians do (and deny they ever did in case they were caught).

Hello Paolo Cavalli, I bought your ATHOS couple of weeks ago and it is brilliant! Now that's a great routine with an invisible compromise. I'm thinking of a routine with a spectator reading a spectators mind, do you think it's possible with the ATHOS or will it be obvious?

Hi Johnny,

welcome to the Café. I'm pretty sure you heard about Derren Brown's talk on "invisible compromise", I guess you've seen his lecture video and that's where your question comes from.

Use the search button, you'll find plenty of talk about billets and how to make them "invisible".



p.s.: It's called preshow

Psychological Mind Reading Illusionist,

I'm not sure to fully understand what you have in mind but here's my personal opinion.

I created ATHOS out of MY need of presenting something like that without my participants understand what really is going on, method wise.

Now, I know some people is quite happy to use some "blistered" playing card value on a finger and to cue a participant with that. To me this is equal to letting the participant in on the secret method (aka making your participant a sort of instant stooge) and that is a NO in MY agenda.
