World-renowned Hypnotist Simon Warner returns to the Edinburgh Festival to premiere the world’s first ever improvised, HYPNOTISED musical show, featuring a cast of all-star improvisers…AND members of the audience!
Lights, camera…disaster! Half the cast of the latest Hollywood blockbuster haven’t turned up on set and with only one hour left to wrap the movie, the Hypnotic Director makes a daring decision to recruit some new stars from the audience, throw away the script, and start again!…
Every night, the resident team of hilarious all-star improvisers from shows including Showstopper! The Improvised Musical and Austentatious, will join forces with willing volunteers from the audience to form one cast of ‘Hollywood Stars’ for one night only and create a brand new improvised blockbuster movie – complete with a fully improvised musical score. The twist? The volunteers will be hypnotized live onstage by the world’s first Hypnotic Director, and with his guidance and the support and ingenuity of these world-class improvisers, they will be elevated to superstardom and believe that everything taking place in the movie is happening for real.
With their inhibitions eradicated, people who may have never stepped foot on a stage before will be stealing the show and acting, dancing and singing with some of the biggest and best comedic improvisers in the UK-thanks to the magic of hypnosis – and the power it has to unlock the responsive, instinctive, creatively suggestible part of our brains that previously only top improvisers have been able to train to utilise on command. Finally banishing stage hypnosis as an excuse for outdated embarrassment comedy and instead revolutionising it as an innovative entertainment tool to turn ordinary people into superstars, with just a single click.
‘If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be hypnotized on stage then this is probably one of the best chances you’ll ever get.’ SGFringe
With just a new musical movie title, suggested by the audience, could these hypnotised volunteers be caught up in the sweeping melodies of “Singing in the Rainforest”, starring in the Rogers and Hammerstein inspired “The King and iPad” or find themselves becoming rock stars on stage in that infamous Shakespeare and Beatles crossover “A Bard Days Night”…No two nights will ever be the same…So join Whose Mind is it Anyway? for a different, improvised, hypnotised, musical movie premiere every single night…
