This is the sequel of QUICK CHANGE - rapid costume changes for men:
In this specialty book you will gain a deep insight into the complexity of this quick change act and experience its creation in the form of a diary. The latest technical knowledge flowed into this presentation and is elaborately described. Both the costumes and the props are described in detail. The techniques applied here are hard-core and allow the speediest costume changes "par excellence"
From preface (Lex Schoppi): Quick Change as an art of entertainment should suggest to the audience that you are actually able to dress and undress very quickly. It is not a question of changing the color of the costume. It is also not a question of changing the most costumes. It is foremost the harmonious interaction between the choreography, the rapid costume changes and above all the enhancing decoration which makes an arousing show out of the mundane change of a dress. The eyes are purposefully over stimulated to charge the human brain, and so an optical firework is created from a simple effect.
Background: At the end of the year 2008 Lex Schoppi & Alina created a television act which amazed a television audience of more than 10 million. Now Lex Schoppi has put pen to paper and allows the reader a complete insight into the complexity of the whole quick change act. You get to see the effects from behind the curtain and understand what really happens within seconds. Apart from the technical subtleties, the author goes into detail of the correct presentation of the effects described. You get to see how a complete quick change act of 12 costumes was developed, how the costumes work, exactly why they performed in that way and how the difficulties were overcome. The techniques described in this book allowed the split second costume changes seen in the legendary television programme to be performed faultlessly.
