    “In theatrical magic, misdirection is a form of deception in which the performer draws audience attention to one thing to distract it from another. Managing audience attention is the aim of all theater, and the foremost requirement of all magic acts. Whether the magic is of a “pocket trick” variety, or, a large stage production, misdirection is the central secret. The term describes either the effect (the observer’s focus on an unimportant object) or the sleight of hand or patter (the magician’s speech) that creates it.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misdirection_(magic)
