creative modern rope magic

Postby reburbia » June 20th, 2015, 1:14 pm

Very inspired by Tabary's style of routine when I first saw it 5 years ago. However having already incorporated those moves, I am desperately looking for new thinkers. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A lot of the stuff I have gone through is more of the same (single false knots, professors nightmare'ish, cut n restored, etc). I'm really looking for some out of the box thinking

It feels like this question is so much easier to answer in cards and coins.

I found new rope ideas in "Magical Rope Artistry" by Daniel Rowan http://www.lybrary.com/magical-rope-art ... 84775.html

Jean Merlin of Paris and Dr. Saws do the best rope work in the world. Merlin's material sadly remains unpublished but an incredible routine by Sawa appeared in iGenii just over a year ago on video.

Lybrary: Magical Rope Artistry looks different, I will give it a shot


Richard: Thank you for exposing Merlin and Saws; I did not realize they were doing such creative things. I managed to snag an old manuscript of Merlin. I did not know that the iGenii had a video section; I thought it was just an online collection of past magazine issues

Thanks again for the help, and to those that may follow
