What can one say about the Cups and Balls? It’s an iconic trick and has become almost as synonymous with the conjurer’s art as the proverbial rabbit from hat. It’s certainly one of magic’s oldest tricks. But why has this trick endured the centuries? For one thing, a Cups and Balls routine can incorporate many different effects – there can be vanishes, appearances, transpositions and productions. For another, it’s always been regarded within the magic world as a kind of measuring stick of a performer’s ability.
