Psychic’ performances are everywhere these days – with people who claim the ability to communicate with the dead performing in everywhere from theatres, to home visits, and on television. What, however, for those who are interested in the idea of these ‘psychic’ shows, but are sceptics? Or would like to see how much ‘psychic’ phenomena can easily be faked?
That is why magician, escapologist and comedy performer Greg Chapman created his ‘The Non-Psychic ‘Psychic’ Show’ and he is very excited to bring the show to the Athenaeum, using the full range of magic, escapology, mentalism and other performance skills, he takes the audience through a ninety-minute exploration of sometimes or often fraudulent mediums, from the Victorian Seances to some techniques used by a number of modern ‘psychics’, but all clearly presented as trickery – and without any attempt or illusion of talking to people’s “dead relatives”.
This show is fun and thought-provoking. Although the show takes no stand on whether it is actually possible to communicate with the dead – many self-professed psychics have told Greg how much they enjoy the show, and how it can only help genuine psychics for people to be aware of the possibility of sometimes or often fraudulent techniques. The show focus on some of the ways that the appearance of such communications can be made through trickery, in a way that is entertaining, interesting, and at times downright funny!
