Escapology is the practice of escaping from restraints or other traps. Escapologists (also called escape artists) escape from handcuffs, straitjackets, cages, steel boxes, barrels, bags, burning buildings, fish-tanks, and other perils, often in combination.

 

Some escapologists' tricks are accomplished by illusionists' techniques; others are genuine acts of flexibility, strength and daring....Wikipedia
