Product Description

We filmed eccentric Bavarian Magic Alexander de Cordova perform, when he made his only lecture here in America. Later we got him aside and he revealed in detail the methods, history, and thinking behind the dozen knockout effects on the two ENIGMATIC volumes.

Alex's unconventional ideas for parlour and platform, are audience tested and perfected over many years. His way of avoiding complicated methods by means of ingenious simplicity will keep surprising you.

Watch real avant-garde magic from the non-conformist mind of Europe's best, Alexander de Cova.

Featuring an extraordinary jumping knot that's super simple to do.

The classic effect. Just as effective, Just as strong. Only cleverly simplified. No memory, no indexes...

Someone else pays for the beer. A very popular trick in Bavaria. Or use juice for the little ones.

Dedicated to the masters. Alexander's handling of the Sympathetic Silks plot is both direct and very deceptive.

Seemingly scan a deck for a few seconds and know which cards is missing, then stab it's mate in the dark.

Defy the laws of physics. How can a borrowed ring be in two places at the same time? Plays to the largest crowd.

Running Time Approximately 85min

I like the way Alexander de Cova thinks. On the outside he looks like your everyday ordinary, eccentric, avant-garde Bavarian magician. But underneath that well manicured European exterior resides the mind of… an eccentric, avant-garde Bavarian magician.

In this two part series produced by Magikraft Studios, de Cova puts his spin on several classic effects. All of these accomplished with some not so classic methods.

Enigmatic Volume One:

The first moment of his multi-phase “Roping” really got me! When I saw the explanation I just had to laugh. So simple and yet so gosh darned effective. “Premonition” is a devilishly clever handling of the “Any Card at Any Number” plot that really fried me!

Alexander de Cova collects ideas from past masters and twists them into effects that will definitely find there way into your repertoire.

I can see “Beer Game” playing very well at a cocktail party, but you will have to simplify the presentation. “Master... [Read More]
