‘HYPNOTISED – Isaac Lomman”
Performance date: Thursday 20th February, 2020
Venue: The May Wirth, Gluttony
To describe this performance as hypnotising is not so much as a review comment but a statement of fact. The magnetic presence of Isaac Lomman made itself felt from the outset for many members of the large audience;12 of whom were invited under hypnosis to appear on stage and participate.
In an hypnotic state, the 12 participants unknowingly acted out all the instructions given by Lomman. It would be a spoiler to say what those instructions were, but enough to say that during a one hour show, the audience witnessed a hilarious succession of weird and wonderful behaviour from those on stage.
Most of the 12 remained under hypnosis for the duration of the performance, but 3 appeared to have awoken from their spell and rejoined the audience.
I had the privilege of sitting next to a willing participant – a Corporate Lawyer -and after the show was surprised at their non-recollection of events.
Highly recommend seeing this Adelaide based performer – mesmerising and thought provoking from start to finish!! A definite 5 stars *****
