Der­ren Brown: Pushed To The Edge


Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

The il­lu­sion­ist re­turns with his most am­bi­tious ex­per­i­ment to date, aim­ing to per­suade an un­wit­ting mem­ber of the pub­lic to push an­other per­son off a roof, seem­ingly to their death. The il­lu­sion in­ves­ti­gates the pow­ers of so­cial com­pli­ance and how au­thor­ity, peer pres­sure or ide­ol­ogy can be used to make peo­ple carry out hor­rific acts. His sub­ject is Chris Kingston, a 29-year-old mem­ber of the pub­lic who is un­aware he’s be­ing filmed or ma­nip­u­lated at a dis­tance, and the set­ting is the gala launch night of a fic­ti­tious new char­ity called Push.

Mind over mat­ter: Der­ren Brown re­turns.
