Deception with Keith Barry: Reading people, implanting thoughts, predicting behaviour and hacking into the subconscious may sound like science fiction, but one man does it – and will show how it’s done. World-renowned mentalist Keith Barry delves into the mysteries of the mind, revealing how ordinary people can better harness their own abilities. These skills have been seen on the stage in Vegas, but rarely have they been applied to the real world. In a variety of scenarios Barry applies these techniques to different situations – from the everyday, such as turning the tables on car salesmen, to the extreme, in which Barry turns his attentions to espionage and the cold war. As he attempts mass hypnosis and programming of ordinary people to be sleeper agents and spies, he brings nail-biting tension to the next level. From Friday 31 March at 21:00 CAT.
