What kind of manipulation do laymen enjoy seeing most? I've had a bit of a problem with audiance reception to my flourishes. I also do some magic, and when I do flourishes people either don't seem that interested or want to see magic instead. It's really killed my desire to get out and perform flourishes. Is this form of manipulation just not appealing to people? Do people prefer juggling, yo-yo tricks, or other forms of manipulation to cardistry? People seem to think that juggling and yo-yo-ing take more skill than cardistry (at least that's how it's always seemed to me). The aerial aspect always seems to get the most attention. People do like to see me shoot cards through the air, but they don't respond well to cuts. I've been flourishing for a little over a year, and I don't think this problem is because I'm bad at what I do, I just think this art form is unappealing to people even though it has a novelty aspect to it. What do you think? Has anyone else had a problem with audiance reception? Is this art form unappealing or uninteresting to laymen?
