A Classic Made Modern
Gone are the days where magicians would borrow a mans cotton handkerchief from an audience member, but that did not stop Peter Samelson from perfecting a classic piece of magic for modern audiences. As a part of Peters working repertoire for the past 30 years The Phoenix doubles as both a formal masterpiece for the stage and as an "anytime, anywhere" impromptu close- up worker.

The Perfect Method & Metaphor
Re-Imagining ideas from legends Karrell Fox and Irv Weiner Peter has streamlined the method to its essence and brought an iconic story to life, etching this effect on audiences memories forever. Using "napkin origami" and other visual cues to induce the metaphor of the Phoenix bird rising from the ashes, this piece is

Three Additional Routines
In two additional routines Art Imitates Life and The Phoenix Ashes Peter has married the classic burnt and restored napkin with the power and impact of the ashes on palm effect.

Greatest Ashes On Palm Instruction Ever Given
In great detail Peter reveals several practical "ash substances" that can be used with this or any other ashes on palm routine including his own creation Peters Secret Stuff (sold separately)*

Anywhere at Anytime
The Impromptu Phoenix brings the project full circle highlighting the true versatility of the method that can be performed up close, surrounded at your next informal visit to the bar, coffee shop or cocktail party with a borrowed paper napkin.
