Seems ok But D-light isnt really for stage
I suggest that trick for close up or street
And the best thing to do if the audience is not lively make some noise wake them up
Put on some music that wont make them fall asleep and if you are doing good they should not fall aslepp
I also suggest getting some new affects besides silks
Hippity hop Rabbits
And add some doves if u can they are cheap and easy to mantain
Actually, D-Lites work a lot better on stage then up close, because then you don't flash. If you use them up close, then you have a strong chance of flashing, because of the handling.
Also, doves aren't that cheap or easy to maintain. First, you have to purchase the doves, the cage, the food, and everything else. Then there are the videos (learning the effects), as well as the gimmicks that go with them. Then there is the chance that they get sick, and you have to pay to get them better. Or God forbid, one dies, so that's some more money. So, like any other pet, it can get expensive. Especially at first.
And to maintain, there are certain things that must be done. Since they are being used for performance, you have to take more care of them, so that they look nice. Also, it's important to maintain their health. There's a lot that has to be done with them. Getting doves is basically a life long commitment. It's not like other effects that you can just throw away.
kevinsak- Since you are using d-lites, you may want to try to use one while making a silk appear. For instance, use the d-lite to produce light from the air, then place it in your hand. Do this a couple of times, then produce the silk. This works as long as you have a blue silk to match your blue d-lite.
As for keeping the audience lively, just be energetic. Your attitude will rub off on them. If you are going to do this to music, find some nice up beat stuff. Don't try to make the music anything too weird though. You could also go for the classical approach, and use some more upbeat classical music. I think this would work, if you could pull off the look, as silk can be considered more of a classic of magic.
