Benefit this Monday in London for a banking company. For an hour I am directed at the request of leaders a show of mentalism. On the program : reading thoughts, predictions and mental calculation operations.
To reinforce the impact of my routines I rely on small details that make the difference or complete effects, based on clever concepts.
Mentalism for corporate
As a former journalist, the mentalism that I practice relies heavily on the turn of precise sentences, a double language and linguistic or cultural particularities. I also use a certain name of psychological forcing. The popularity, the predictable response frequency given by the viewer are related to his native language and culture.
However, these tools should be handled with care, as items such as the most frequently named cards or the most popular colors may vary slightly from country to country. This approach is a basis of work that I adjust with experience, my audience, its language and culture. We must distinguish magic from mentalism. No because the viewer sees a cabbage magic is art.
Momentary deception. We know that the woman is not cut in half, that at the end of the show becomes a mother again. At the bottom of us we know that we are looking at an illusion.
Which is not the case when we go to see a show of mentalism, because sometimes we go back to ask if we have seen a show or a science class.
Theodore Annemann said about mentalism that this is a more adult phase of magic and mystery. In this sense, mentalism is what comes closest to the true magic of true thought reading. A good mentalist is using every opportunity to improve his presentation. During this corporate evening, I did the square test. I asked a public number that I did not know a strange question, to choose a form. The person had chosen the square. I invited him to teach them the paper under his chair to reveal my prediction.
