Indian Cups and Balls by TCC - Trick
Throughout the rich history of magic, the Cups and Balls has always held the distinction of being one of the oldest tricks. While its exact origins remain elusive, it is widely believed to date back to the bustling street markets of ancient Rome.
Cups and Balls is a true icon of magic, encompassing a wide range of enchanting effects: disappearance, penetration, transposition, color change, and even transformation. Its performance exudes an air of elegance that adds a touch of sophistication to any magician's repertoire. Almost every professional magician has their own Cups and Balls routine and considers it an essential part of their repertoire.
Within the extensive history of the Classic Cups and Balls, there is a special variant that remains relatively unknown to many: the Indian Cups and Balls. It has distinctive cups, techniques, and structures that set it apart from other versions. Its roots run deep, and its performance style is exceptionally distinctive.
The Indian Cups and Balls originated from traditional Indian street magic, where magicians would sit on the ground surrounded by standing or seated audience members. This specific arrangement allows the magician to execute special techniques that contribute to a seamless and flawless performance.
Inspired by this exceptional branch of Cups and Balls, TCC PRESENTS has meticulously designed a classic set of Indian Cups And Balls.

Our intention is to redefine this ancient prop and demonstrate that magic is not just about the effects, but encompasses a unique magical culture.
The Indian Cups and Balls will undoubtedly provide you with a unique experience, even if you have never performed it before.
