VISAGE – Seen and Revealed

VISAGE – Revealing the Secrets of the Mind showed audiences again what mentalism is really about. Says Abrahamson, “Mentalism uses the five senses to create an illusion of a sixth sense; It is effectively an art form that uses mathematics, memory skills, body language, eye movement, psychological suggestion and other skills in order to influence audience members into specific, but non-threatening and non-personal courses of action.”

How Does He Do That?

Powerbrain is a cerebral, intriguing affair, and theatre for thinking people. There are no flying phantoms, glittering costumes or musical crescendos, just one rather nerdy looking man who warms up his mental neurones by running through a few square roots before tackling “something more audacious.”

More Amazing Mentalism

Michael Abrahamson starts his show with a grid on which he does some sudoku-like exercises to a number randomly chosen by a member of the audience. He does these almost at the speed of light. He moves on to mental arithmetic of the variety that involves squares and cubes.

He memorises a deck of cards in TWELVE seconds and then puts them aside and at the end he shows how he retained that information. Very useful and not cheating for card counting in bridge.

Powerbrain - The Mentalist on the March

“Mentalism, (at the time it seemed to me more like ‘intelligent magic’), was exactly my thing, something I was able to tie in to my courses.” He explains the distinction further, “Mentalism is NOT magic, and other than being a performing art, has very little in common with your conventional magic show”.

Power of the Mind

The Sunday Independent, May 13 2012

I NEEDED to know how this was done. Standing up before an audience at the University of Johannesburg Arts Centre, mentalist Michael Abrahamson wore a sober black suit, teamed it with a green shirt, his favourite colour, as it was his birthday, and proceeded to dazzle us with card tricks, predictions, mind-reading and mathematical wizardry.

  • "Michael was really fantastic in the session this morning, held specifically to launch a renewed focus on innovation. It is clear that most of us really underutilise the full mental capacity of our minds and it is truly amazing to see what you can do with it with the correct training, guidance and focus – unbelievable really. The session was also really great in terms of showing people that you can have your mind working on one “channel” (like while you are doing your required work) and at the same time having it working on some great idea, or change to how you do something, that may make a big difference to the business or our clients. He was simply amazing at having more than one intricate and complex “performance” happening at the same time.
    A great engaging personality with a super sharp and entertaining mind, he had the entire room captivated for every second of his performance. Thank you Michael!"
    - Peter Edwards, CEO, Financial Services Holdings, Alexander Forbes
