MARC SALEM (article first published : 2007-07-19)

The world-renowned mentalist Marc Salem returns to South Africa with Mind Games for a three week season at the iZulu Theatre at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom from August 7.

Marc Salem, who was last seen in South Africa on a much-acclaimed and highly publicised national tour in 2004, takes his audience on a captivating excursion into the possibilities of the human mind through a series of hilarious, astounding and mystifying Mind Games.

“This is fun, family entertainment suitable for anyone from around nine to ninety,” enthuses Marc Salem who uses games to illustrate the nature of our thinking and in doing so takes his audience on a journey deeper into the intangible concept of “the mind”.

Using psychological techniques, visual information, a sharp eye for human nature, a quick wit and 20 years of training, Marc Salem breaks that eternal lock on the mind. By opening that door, he raises fascinating questions that continue to excite philosophers and scientists today: What are our senses? How do we use our senses to make our reality? What if our senses can be fooled? What is the mind?

“By using these Mind Games, I encourage people to become more open to their mind's potential and to what we're still learning about our perceptions,” he adds.

Mind Games promises to be an awe-inspiring show offering international entertainment at its best. It has been hailed by critics and enjoyed by millions around the world on Broadway and London’s West End, in Singapore and at the Sydney Opera House.

Marc Salem has been a student of the human mind for over 30 years. As an academic he holds advanced degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and New York University, and has been on faculty of several major universities for close to two decades. He is considered one of the world's foremost authorities on non-verbal communication. He was a director of research at Sesame Street studying the development and nature of the mental process.

Mind Games is brought to Durban by HUNTA in association with East Coast Radio. It runs in the iZulu Theatre, Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom from August 7 to 26 from Tuesdays to Saturdays at 20h00 with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 15h00. Tickets from R50 to R90 booked through Computicket and Sibaya Box-Office on 031 580 5555.
