Short Answer: Games of the Mind!
Long Answer: A mentalism show that’s what. You’re probably asking yourself what is mentalism? (If not please move ahead to the next paragraph) Mentalism is the art of applying psychological techniques, magical methods, and good old showmanship in order to create an experience of discovering the unknown and revealing the hidden. Basically, good ole’ fashion mindreading.
Now that you know what mentalism is, let me tell you more about the show Games of the Mind. In this show I hope to take several childhood games, and maybe a few that we still play as adults, and add a twist. For instance, have you ever played Pictionary without seeing the pictures? Played tic-tac-toe like a chess master? Well this show is going to give you the opportunity to experience each of these things and a variety of other mind-blowing twists on your favorite games. Along with one special game, which how should I put it, is something you should never try at home.
Short Answer: Provo, UT.
Long Answer: Provo, UT? I’m sure even less of you are aware of Provo, UT than know what mentalism is. Well Provo is a pretty happening place, home to hundreds of local musicians, actors, and other artists. Every weekend one can find great music, or an inspiring production to attend. However, there aren’t any regularly performing magicians or mentalists, and I hope to change that, and carve out a new niche in a wonderful city that does so much for artists already.
Short Answer: Fall 2012.
Long Answer: November of 2012; the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th to be exact. I think the timing speaks for itself, but we all find ourselves more attuned to happenings that are a bit more out of the ordinary come October/November. I want to utilize this wonderful atmosphere and build upon it to create a wonderful experience full of both fun and mystery.
Short Answer: Because I can, and because you like supporting new artists and performers.
Long Answer: As you can tell my answer to this question both why I’m doing this and why I would love your support. I've been performing magic and mentalism for almost 10 years now. I've done kids birthday parties, and performed for friends, but I've never been on stage, and I think it's about time. I just want to have the opportunity to share what I believe to be a beautiful art and mind blowing experience with people, and that's what this show is about. So if you'd like to make a dream come true, help support one of the most unique art forms out there, or just like my face then go ahead and donate today.
Finally, I just want to say thanks whether you donate or not. By taking the time to view this project you've shown you're interested in something that few people are. It means a lot to me that you even took the time to read this. So thanks.
