Example text

In this behavior, too, there is the simulation of risk within the guarantees of safety (after all, this is a show and we know that magicians really are only technicians), mystery, illusion, and fetishization. It is all in fun, of course, but it does not take much imagination to sense the undercurrents of tension (the communication of hostility between performer and audience, going both ways) that make the experience more exciting and lead to a more dramatic endpoint. Some of the same is found in other performers whose acts build up tension and lead to climax: athletes, gamblers, circus performers, explorers, actors.

If outer reality is engaged, it is chosen because it fits proportions that fantasy demands.
