This is, quite simply, the best and ON—LY masterclass on equivoque ever recorded on video. In his acclaimed live performance and talk, Hector Chadwick teaches us intermediate and advanced techniques to improve the mentalism you already do, and even offers a terrific impromptu routine that you can adapt to perform ANYWHERE.
2006 saw the release of a book entitled The Mental Mysteries of Hector Chadwick. It was received by the mentalism community with a mixture of intrigue and delight, for the book was wonderful, yet nobody really knew who Hector Chadwick was.
At The Session 2014, he came clean to give his very first lecture, the Olivier Award winning co-writer of Derren Brown shows such as Svengali, Apocalypse and The Great Art Robbery.
This is that lecture. It’s a 20 minute dissection of equivoque, in which Hector completely deconstructs the technique, identifies the problems and pitfalls associated with it, and teaches a brilliant prediction effect along the way. You’ll learn the one thing you should never say at the start of an equivoque routine, how to stop your audience from questioning the selection process, the most deceptive way of eliminating objects, and all the common issues that a thinking performer needs to be aware of.
Hector’s approach to mentalism is so fresh and whimsical it makes my heart leap. His work on equivoque is amongst his best: an overhaul of one of the most powerful areas of our craft, treated with a lightness of touch alien to the ponderous ranks of interchangeable mentalists. This is an excellent treatise from a brilliant and unique man.
I have been intensively studying the art of Equivoque for over 30 years and thoroughly enjoyed this lively, entertaining and quite challenging lecture on the subject. Don’t miss it!
Fascinating, enlightening and essential — that’s what I think about Mr. Hector Chadwick’s excellent chat.
Running time: 20 minutes.
