SEATTLE— Seattle Theatre Group (STG) presents MARC SALEM’S MIND GAMES May 17 & 18, 2007 at The Moore Theatre. Laying bare the very nature of thinking itself, world-renowned mentalist Marc Salem takes his audience on a captivating excursion into the possibilities of the human mind through a series of hilarious, astounding and mystifying MIND GAMES.
Using psychological techniques, visual information, a sharp eye for human nature, a quick wit and 20 years of training, 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?
Bringing his technique and unique gifts to the stage, Salem confounds audiences with the twists and turns of his MIND GAMES.
• He can change the time on your watch without touching it.
• He can describe your last vacation.
• He can tell you the serial number of a bill in your wallet.
• He can discern a single word you saw in a book of your choosing.
