For countless performances now, my show has ended with a powerful finale.
This finale, called NIX4, is four incredible effects in one and they all fit perfectly together to produce a full-bodied finish to any parlour or stage show.
When the performer uses NIX4, he demonstrates four separate skill sets: Prediction, Influence, Direct Mind Reading and the mastery of Non-Verbal cues. In its entirity, NIX4 uses 5 audience members and has an incredible sixteen moments of amazement.
NIX4 relies on one single moment of sneakiness, just one, and then the effects simply fall into place.
Here’s what you will find in NIX4:
A new and exciting way to use a Chair Test that makes sense and has strong up-sell possibilities for trade shows, corporate events and other bespoke performances.
Direct Mind Reading, where you look at your participants on stage and reveal what word they are thinking of, or at least a word that is close to their mental selection.
The ability to detect which participants on stage are truth tellers or liars.
A Prediction of one of the participants’ mentally selected words that is on show BEFORE that word is revealed.
A Redemption style effect, where you ‘fail’ to divine a word thought of by a participant. Once the end of the show applause dies down, the performer points to an A4 card that has been on show the entire time. Upon turning it around, the word that the performer missed is PRINTED on the reverse side of the card.
Best of all is that everything you need to perform all these phenomenal abilities will pack so flat that they fit into a regular A4 folder. Not only this, but NIX4 was created with larger audiences in mind, so it can be performed in large theatres and everyone will be able to see what is happening, including anything that needs to be read. Naturally, NIX4 also works fantastically with smaller audiences.
Time wise, NIX4 can be played swiftly as a 15 min piece, comfortably as a 20 min piece or as a more leisurely 25 min piece.
There is no pre-show work. Once you set up, anyone from the audience can be selected at random, by you or someone at the event.
No electronics are involved. This enables you to have a fun with your show without worrying about battery life or technical glitches.
With so many skills and abilities being demonstrated, NIX4 can be a completely stand alone piece that provides hit after hit, without making you look like a neophyte effect jockey.
The entire piece has one logical theme that the performer sets up in his introduction dialogue. After that, the individual pieces link together and make sense. This linking of narrative creates a theatrical performance instead of disparate effects loosely glued together.
Did I mention that you only have to do ONE sneaky thing and the rest takes care of itself? It’s a very strong point, as this enables you to focus purely on your presentation.
It took me many performances, but I have ironed out all of the initial issues that I had with NIX4 and in the book I will take you through my original problems and dilemmas and how I circumvented them.
What you have in NIX4 is a performance piece that has been meticulously carved out, by me, and tried and tested in all arenas; what you gain from this book is not only the methods for NIX4, but you will also benefit from my experiences, meaning that you will avoid my mistakes and learn my well crafted subtelties.
To make the book clear and consise there are numerous illustrations throughout the book that have been created especially for this project. Here are some samples:
understand the process easily
no guessing at what is happening
theatrical blocking images for pinpoint accuracy
NIX4 IS LIMITED TO 200 COPIES WORLDWIDE AND WILL NOT BE REPUBLISHED IN ANY MANNER IN THE FUTURE. ONLY 200 PEOPLE WILL KNOW THE SECRET AND THE REST WILL REMAIN IN THE DARK ABOUT THE TRUE NATURE OF NIX4.
