World-renowned mentalist Scott Silven will present the awe-inducing Wonders in the Opera House’s Playhouse from 14 - 26 June 2022. After sell-out performances at Sydney Festival and Melbourne International Arts Festival, the charming Scottish storyteller returns to Australia to challenge audiences to reconsider the powers of the human mind.
In an exploration of mystery and serendipity, the debonair Scotsman guides audiences down a path of his childhood memories and how he uncovered his unique ability to make mental connections to the world around him. Utilising his distinctive performance style that combines artful narrative, compelling mentalism and his enigmatic personality, Silven beguiles crowds with a sense of childlike wonder.
Silven has toured extensively on the international stage in addition to headline engagements for Sydney Festival and Melbourne International Arts Festival. With an array of acclaimed performances under his belt including Wonders at Dusk, At The Illusionists Table (Syd Fest 2020) and the highly innovative, digitally presented New York Times Critic’s Pick The Journey, Scott Silven continues to push the boundaries of his craft with this presentation of Wonders.
Wonders is conceived, created and performed by Scott Silven.
