    • Closing conference show with Victor Mids, MINDF*CK

      Victor Mids is both illusionist and a doctor (not practicing). Through this combination he brings illusion and science together in a unique way. Let him take you to his world, where nothing is what it seems. Neuromagic is a combination of illusionism, psychology, medicine and sleight of hand. While leaving the classical form of magic behind, Victor takes his audience in an entertaining and intelligent way along a range of illusions and neuropsychological experiments. How easily will you be distracted? How do you erase someone’s memory? And does a free will actually exist? Find out how easy your own brain and senses are being fooled.
