Escapologists also classified as escape artists escape from handcuffs , straitjackets , cages , coffins , steel boxes, barrels , bags, burning buildings, fish-tanks , and other perils, often in combination.

The art of escaping from restraints and confined spaces has been a skill employed by performers for a very long time. It was not originally displayed as an overt act in itself but was instead used secretly to create illusions such as a disappearance or transmutation.

Other illusionists, including John Nevil Maskelyne , worked out how the Davenports did their act and re-created the tricks to debunk the brothers' claims of psychic power. However, the re-creations did not involve overt escape, merely a replication of tricks with the statement that they were accomplished by secret magicians' skills rather than spirits. It took another thirty years before the pure skill of escape began to be displayed as an act in itself. The figure most responsible for making escapology a recognized entertainment was Harry Houdini , who built his career on demonstrating the ability to escape from a huge variety of restraints and difficult situations.

Houdini made no secret of the fact that he was an expert on restraints and the skills needed to overcome them but he often concealed the exact details of his escapes to maintain an air of mystery and suspense. Although many of his escapes relied on technical skills such as lock-picking and contortion, he also performed tricks such as Metamorphosis and the Chinese Water Torture Cell , which are essentially classic stage illusions reliant on cleverly designed props.

Houdini's feats helped to define the basic repertoire of escapology, including escapes from handcuffs , padlocks , straitjackets , mail bags , [4] beer barrels , and prison cells. The actual term 'escapology' is reputed to have been coined originally by Australian escapologist and illusionist Murray Norman Murray Walters , a Houdini contemporary.
