Hyp­no­tist casts event spell

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

some kind,” he said. “When you’re driv­ing you don’t think about the com­plex set of oper­a­tions you’re do­ing, hyp­no­sis works in the same way.

“Hyp­no­sis is like day dream­ing on pur­pose, I guide you through that state of mind; it’s all about the power of sug­ges­tion, body lan­guage and tone of voice.”

Hale said his fas­ci­na­tion with hyp­no­sis be­gan when he par­tic­i­pated in a show many years ago.

“I saw a show when I was 21 and was hooked, I’m so fas­ci­nated with the mind,” he said.

“I taught my­self ini­tially from books and muck­ing around with friends be­fore I trained more for­mally as a hyp­nother­a­pist.

“Peo­ple have lots of strange ideas about hyp­no­sis stem­ming from old movies and shows, but in the first few min­utes of my show I like to doll those myths down.”

Hale said vol­un­teers could ex­pect to have a lot of fun at his show in Kar­ratha.

“There will be no strange beard, no swing­ing watches and no chick­ens ei­ther,” he said.

“When you have peo­ple who be­lieve they are on a beach or can only speak another lan­guage, things be­come quite in­ter­est­ing.

“The one thing I al­ways stress is I al­ways want peo­ple on stage to have a lot of fun, rather than leav­ing them em­bar­rassed as I have seen in other shows.

“I am so ex­cited to come to REAF, it’s one of those fes­ti­vals that would be unique in any ma­jor me­trop­o­lis, let alone some­where so re­gional.”

At REAF Af­ter Dark, au­di­ences will be en­cour­aged to wan­der from show to show, en­joy­ing a va­ri­ety of Af­ter Dark per­for­mances, with each last­ing be­tween 15 and 30 min­utes and play nu­mer­ous times through­out the evening.

A range of food and bev­er­age op­tions will be avail­able to pur­chase. This is a li­censed event and strictly 18 plus.
