“Consultant for Criss Angel’s MindFreak & UK’s No.1 Mentalist - Derren Brown”

Imagine having the power to get inside a person’s head. Now imagine having the power to manipulate & control thoughts in a person’s mind & even the ability to “implant” ideas into a random person’s psyche. Once you have a clear image of this in your mind’s eye, you are just beginning to open the door to Jermay’s world, a world unlike anything you have ever seen before. This is an amazing experience that does not rely upon clever sleight of hand or tricks, but rather will resonate at the deepest levels of your brain.

“Luke Jermay’s - Mind Control” is a compelling full-length evening performance featuring marvelous demonstrations of psychological technique, persuasion skills & perceptual manipulation that create a brand new & exciting form of magic, he calls “psychological illusion.” Having studied & explored culture, subculture, & the deviant from birth, Jermay has mixed inspiration from the best & worst of these worlds to perform a truly unusual show. Where a “magician” would pull a bunny from a hat, Jermay hammers a 5-inch fencing nail into his face & walks on jagged shards of glass while demonstrating amazing memory stunts. Where a “magician” might find your card, Jermay will tell you exactly what your thinking, from a past lovers name or your social security number. Expect anything but the ordinary from Jermay. He likes playing casual games of Russian roulette with a gun pressed against his temple & nothing but his ability to read a person’s non-verbal communication to save his life. He can easily demonstrate the art of sightless vision with his eyelids sealed shut using thick duct tape & silver dollars. Jermay has hypnotized a person to learn an entire language in only seven minutes & has bet money on his power to influence the decisions of four random people in a mass mind game. This is not the “magic” your uncle showed you at Thanksgiving. Jermay has performed in over 35 countries at some of the world’s most prestigious theatrical events. From a sold out 35 night run at the world famous Edinburgh Festival which gained both commercial & critical acclaim, to a highly successful run in London’s West End so well received it was extended 7 times! Jermay knows how to please an audience. Mixing the worlds of magic, hypnosis, mind reading & the sideshow, Jermay’s synergy creates an astoundingly unique magical performance. “Luke Jermay’s Mind Control” will entertain & derange.

This was only the first night! The following evening Jermay will teach some of his best-known effects. His lecture will examine the art of suggestion techniques combining classic conjuring methods. He will explain ideas using a mix of autosuggestion, interpreting body language, mentalism, misdirection, & performance. His best selling books & dvds: “7 Deceptions,” “Building Blocks,” “Coral Fang,” & “Skullduggery” are all hailed by the critics. This is a very rare opportunity to see Mind Reader, Luke Jermay perform live, plus having a teaching lecture the following night!

Seating is limited.
Mind Control-The Show is open to the public.
Special $40.00-both nights for members before October, Friday the 13th.

EXIT Theatre Presents Christian Cagigal's The 13 Steps
EXIT Café FRI/SAT 8:30pm OCT 13 - OCT 28
Tickets $12 - $20 sliding scale at the door; $20 online tickets. Reservations at 415-673-3847
An intimate evening of close-up illusion, theater and mindreading guided by actor and award winning magician Christian Cagigal (Winnner Best of Fringe 2004-Magic @ the Fringe) "Close-up magic is the kind of theater where no 4th wall is allowed," says Cagigal, "With close-up magic you don't just watch the show, you are the show. You can't sit invisibly in the dark and safely contemplate what you are seeing; you are an active participent. What happens in the show happens to you."
Christian Cagigal has had successful runs in both the 2003 and 2004 SF Fringe Festivals. He has consulted for The San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour (as seen in the SF Chronicle and the Travel Channel) as well as Crowed Fire and A.C.T.'s MFA Program. Cagigal is also a member of reknowned San Francisco Mime Troupe (no not that kind of mime) where he just finished a fantastic run as an actor and apprentice writer on this summers hit, Godfellas.
But, starting October Friday the 13th Christian Cagigal returns to his roots with his next venture into the world of illusion or as he likes to call it, "..questioning reality..." Whether your are a strong believer or staunch skeptic 13 Steps promises to ask the question, "Do you really know what is fake and what is real?"
....what's your answer.........?
"...emotionally affecting...." --Jean Shiffman-Backstage West
"...intimate's no coincidence that "Cagigal" rhymes with "magical." -- Chloe Veltman-SF Weekly

It was the last time Luke will perform that show in that form ever again. Glad I finally got to see this thing left over from his fringe run years ago. It is a fun show.

The lecture quite interstingly featured mostly different material as well as a lot of practical theory. These two days were proof positive that Luke is a very progressive thinker who is not satisfied with standing still. He is driven by constantly growing and expanding as a performer.
