I remember seeing Ariann Black in The Theater in The Magic Castle, and how she connected with the audience very well, who became very enthusiastic with her card work and other presentations.
She set up one part, where she told the audience a story about her childhood...playing in the backyard, blowing soap bubbles, etc., that enhanced her already likeable persona.
When she then started her presentation of Interlude, with her assistant, their very suggestive moves/choreography(?) leading up to the illusion, were regarded as tacky/silly to some, offensive to others. (Person in front of me cracked to his date, "70's soft porn.")
(I heard she was asked to cut that part out for the rest of her run that week, don't know if that is true.)
Watching how they struggled with it, then thinking of Princess Tenko, who thought she IMPROVED(!) it by having two men inside, while she showed how FAST she could get thru it...showed how some may not UNDERSTAND the illusion, they want to do that others have defined.
As I turned to walk out, I noticed Jonathan sitting behind me and told him, "What I just saw only more confirms how much that illusion is YOURS, and that no one can ever take it from you."
Jonathan's notes in this thread of all the thinking and rehearsal that went into it, shows how they made it the very physical, sensual, primal, and mystifying presentation, The Pendragons will be remembered for.
