Christopher Carter: Mentalist | 8 pm 
Montante Cultural Center

A Christopher Carter performance is the closest thing to pure mind reading you’ll ever see. But it’s more than just amazing, it’s also really funny!

Christopher starts each performance with a demonstration of his skill at reading body language. The audience is thrilled as he ‘reads their minds’ by reading their nonverbal behavior, then they’re amazed as he explains a few of the ‘tells’ that allowed him to read them so easily. From here things take a turn to the surreal. Soon Christopher is reading not just one, but dozens of members in the audience, revealing secrets and details about them that he simply should not be able to know.

But Christopher does much more than read minds. He makes predictions about audience members that come true in detail during the performance. He identifies borrowed objects, even though his eyes have been sealed shut with duct tape. He plants thoughts into the minds of audience volunteers, and even causes them to ‘see’ things that don’t exist!
