THE HIDDEN ART OF USING SCENT AS INFLUENCE AND SUGGESTION IN PERFORMANCE.
Secret Scent-sations is a truly innovative manuscript that pushes the boundaries yet again on the very underused principle of scent in performance.
Subtitles “The hidden art of using scent as influence and suggestion in performance” Secret Scent-sations reveals a wild mix of well-kept hidden performance material from Kenton and friends.
A spectator is told to relax and name anything that comes to mind in a guided meditation. This very item appears in her own hands!
Kenton puts a person into a trance and says that their sense of smell is so heightened they can smell where a chocolate candy is hidden. Then this hypnotized person can apparently smell colors that are hidden, and name the colors too!
As you have come to expect from Kenton – not at all the same old thing, as you can see.
A spectator JUST THINKS of something in her mind and the performer holding a camera to her forehead takes a picture of her guided mental scene. No, we did not forget to mention some use of forcing cards or other typical fare. This looks impossible even to the spectator.
Kenton is known for breaking new barriers and using unusual tools in ways never used before. This is a classic example of Kenton laying the foundation once again for a whole new way of performing miracles… and we do mean miracles!
For historical reference, Kenton and Docc’s “Sunny Beaches” from the long out of print “Weerd Enough” book is also included.
There is much more in this work of course, but you’ll have to get it to read it all. Your mind will be swimming with new ideas, both wild and practical. Kenton’s “Blindfold Sniff Test” is finally revealed here too at last.
Join Kenton on the brink of another new chapter of how magic and mentalism is performed with Secret Scent-Sations.
