Sawing in Half illusion
The origins of the Sawing in Half illusion go back as far as 1809, but P.T. Selbit has been generally recognised to be the first magician to have performed it on stage in public at the Finsbury Park Empire theatre in London on 17 January 1921. Since then, there have been many versions of this amazing illusion.
Sue-Anne Webster has performed a one-of-a-kind Sawing in Half illusion which has been logged in the history of Sawing in Half illusions.
It was performed surrounded and was so deceptive that it even baffled David Copperfield's illusion builder, Jim Steinmeyer—who said that he knew how it must have been done, but could not work out how it could work.
Sue-Anne was the only woman in the world to perform the Sawing in Half illusion with a live chainsaw.

Due to circumstances beyond Sue-Anne's control, this Sawing in Half illusion has been temporarily incarcerated. Authorities will deem a safe time for its return.
Until then, Sue-Anne will be attempting to escape Straitjackets as she is now under the strict supervision of Dr Heinz Wurlitzer of the Stollen Institute, Austria.
