Have You Ever Wanted Superpowers?


PRESS RELEASE:

Have You Ever Wanted Superpowers?
Mentalist Robert Haley Has Just The ELIXIR For You!


Wellingtonians will be encouraged to take their medicine when N.Z’s
very own Mentalist brings his new show ELIXIR to BATS next month.
Robert Haley’s previous show Mind Reader showed him using devious
techniques from various fields to make it appear as if he could read minds
Mind Reader has charmed audiences throughout New Zealand and Australia
over the last 2 years. Now Robert is focusing on ELIXIR, a completely new
work that premiered in Melbourne last year.

With a suitcase stocked with delightful elixirs Robert promises to give
extraordinary experiences and maybe even super powers to the lucky few
that get an opportunity to come onto stage.

Robert states that he “Grew up on a large dose of the supernatural on T.V
and became hooked on stories with super power themes because of shows
like X-men, Dr. Who and Heroes.

Away from the bright screens of T.V. Robert loves reading dusty old books
about charlatans - fraudulent psychics, snake oil salesmen and other conartist
types - and thought it would be great to marry the two worlds.”

Robert, who hails from Wellington, professes that it isn’t about the elixirs
but the audience members, “ It works because they want it to, sort of like a
placebo. Well… that mixed with some subtle use of observation and
suggestion on my part to help with the trickery.”

ELIXIR looks to leave audiences amazed and baffled in awe.
WARNING: Side effects may vary.
Read the label and take as directed, if symptoms persist see a doctor.

Coinciding as it does with the movie Imitation Game which focusses on Alan Turing breaking the Enigma code in Hut 6 at Bletchley Park (“BP”), this book is likely to attract a wide readership. It deserves to do so, as it illustrates that BP was very much more than Turing and his colleagues. More>>
