AT the age of 18, local mentalist Brendon Peel was the youngest solo magic act to perform at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. This year will be his 6th year at the Festival.

Brendon was born and raised in Port Elizabeth and at a young age he enjoyed pranks, practical jokes and tricks. After reading his first magic book he discovered an undying passion for this mysterious art form.

At 16 he started performing close-up magic at a local restaurant. From this, interest in psychology behind the mind-tricks led him to his love of mentalism for which he is renowned today.

His show “Mind Over Magic” is about exploring the human mind and the capabilities of the subconscious.

The show includes mind-tricks, hypnotic suggestion and illusion which culminates into one hour of interactive and engaging entertainment that leaves the audience mesmerized.

According to Brendon, this year’s theme is to open people’s minds and unlock their true potential by showing the infinite possibilities of what the human brain can do.

“The message of Mind Over Magic is simple: We all have the capability of unlocking our minds to achieve new heights.”

Overall, this production is a feel-good one for the audience as they can see there is a superhero in all of us.

Mind Over Magic is being performed at the Masonic Back from June 30 to July 10.

Tickets are R72 per person with discounts for pensioners and block bookings. Tickets can be booked through the National arts festival website or at the box office.
