If the name Bryan Miles doesn’t jump out at you immediately, become acquainted with the “master of the wicked manipulation of the mind” at the Alexander Bar for two performances on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 13 and 14, at 7pm.
Miles is trained in the art of thought deception and has performed across the globe, from London to Los Angeles, for movie stars and celebrities. His primetime SABC TV series, ‘One Day with Bryan Miles’, had South Africans across the country questioning what is possible and what is not. “You just sent a shiver down my spine,” said SABC 3 Presenter Graeme Richards on one episode.
Miles can seemingly influence and predict human behaviours. By using his skillset of magic, suggestion and psychology, he is able to theatrically manipulate one’s perception of the world.
His one-man show at the Alexander Bar, ‘Bryan Miles: Live’, will see the performer sharing some of his unique obsessions from childhood with the audience. “I am obsessed with the human mind. Does free will exist? Are the thoughts and decisions we make truly our own? Every thought we have results in some kind of action. I don’t read minds, I read people,” says Miles.
* The Alexander Bar upstairs theatre is situated at 76 Strand Street, Cape Town.
Tickets can be booked by visiting shows.alexanderbar.co.za.
