What's up with illusionist and dancing. I never quite understood the connection. Do I need to dance too if I do my street show. Will that help me get bookings. When I go to a magic show I expect to see magic, not dancing. Otherwise I would go to Riverdance.
Yes, magic happens, but the dancing is clearly time filler. And that is true most of the time. I understand the eye candy function of a female assistant. And I also understand that she needs to wear very little clothing, because without it the magicians seems rather pale.
To me this is the same as wearing a Rolex, having a big car, an Apple and a big fucking dick. If you need that... maybe your magic is what needs the pimping. Just saying. This is not about Jan Rouven, this is more a general thing about illusions shows. Loud music, mostly the most recent hit, fireworks near the end and lots of dancing. I miss magic.
Here the dance is actually quite motivated:
PS. I am not even trying to go into this whole issue about feminism and how badly it is treated in a magic show as the females, even though often powerful are without character and without purpose aside from the eye candy and the torture devices!
