These levitating street performers always fascinate curious passer-bys. They also get awarded much more money than all other street performers. However, what’s the secret behind their levitation?


These street performers use one device that consists of three parts and make an impression they levitate.


The device street levitators use consists of these three parts:

1. A seat

2. A shaft which extends from the part no. 3 into performer’s sleeve and down to the seat.

3. The platform, which is always covered by a rug while the levitator’s seat and shaft are covered by his costume.
