Event - Visage at Auto & General Theatre on the Square

Start Date: 2017-05-09 · End Date: 2017-05-14 · Venue: Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Nelson Mandela Square

 

Visage - Revealing the Secrets of the Mind showing at Auto & General Theatre on the Square, Nelson Mandela Square from the Tuesday, 9 to Sunday, 14 May 2017.

The Auto & General Theatre on the Square is proud to present a spellbinding theatrical experience with leading mentalist and memory expert, MICHAEL ABRAHAMSON. His production, VISAGE – Revealing the Secrets of the Mind, will be presented for one week only from the 9th May. Tickets for this "must see” experience are selling fast and there are only seats available for the performance on Friday 12th May at 20:15. Extra shows may be added.

VISAGE – Revealing the Secrets of the Mind is a unique experience, based on some never-before-seen effects that develop and unravel throughout the show, building up to a memorable and astonishing climax. It is suitable for all ages and Michael Abrahamson demonstrates performance pieces that keep the audience enthralled throughout. It is also fully interactive, so the audience are totally involved in the process, both actively and passively. The show is directed by veteran director and producer, Richard H. Nosworthy.

As with Abrahamson’s previous two shows, VISAGE makes use of mathematics, memory skills, body language, psychology, eye movements in interactive fun ways that keep audiences spellbound throughout the performance. VISAGE – Revealing the Secrets of the Mind shows audiences what mentalism is really about. Abrahamson, formerly a magician, became fascinated with the arts when he was very young; at the age of six he assisted a magician at a cousin’s birthday party and became "hooked”. He then joined a magic school and learned magical secrets and began developing his own shows. He moved from magic to mentalism some ten years ago after he had seen a mentalism show presented by a visiting exponent of the art.

Says Abrahamson, "Mentalism uses the five senses to create an illusion of a sixth sense; It is effectively an art form that uses mathematics, memory skills, body language, eye movement, psychological suggestion and other skills in order to influence audience members into specific, but non-threatening and non-personal courses of action.” This makes for very compelling entertainment.

"Now this amazing mathematician and baffler of brains has pumped up the pizzazz to make his new show, Visage - Revealing the Secrets of the Mind, a little showier. He hasn’t resorted to gold shirts and sequined assistants, thank goodness, but he has lights and music, and a slicker feel thanks to director Richard Nosworthy" Lesley Stones - Daily Maverick.
