Derren Brown; illusionist, artist, hypnotist and master of the mind. I, myself have always been a big fan of this mysterious trickster, so when given the opportunity to review his new act Showman, I was beyond excited, but also a little apprehensive of what the night may entail.
Brown does not disappoint with this unique and touching show so be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster of an experience.
A genius combination of witty humour, skilful observations and unbelievable mind-bending manipulation, will have you questioning what you see, hear and feel. Whether on stage, or not, this show is all about us, the audience. You will feel a deep connection, to not only Derren, himself, but the strangers around you. Poignant and reflective, you will look at your own personal relationships and experiences.
The spectacle was accompanied by the clever use of lighting and sound, building suspense and keeping us all on the edge of our seats. Portable cameras and projection allowed for the audience to be fully submersed in even the smallest of tricks and capture the raw emotion and stunned surprise of those involved.
The audience are sworn to secrecy about the brilliance they witness, so to know the true feeling of a Derren Brown show you must experience it for yourself. Prepare for jaw-dropping, mystical magic.
