Topic: Peter Turner Coming Back to Penguin Live
Message: Posted by: DanHarlan (Jun 10, 2016 12:37PM)
As you probably know by now, we've changed the format of our lectures to be able to show more performance footage, so questions are no longer live-tweeted (the Penguin Live name was kept for branding reasons... I know, confusing, but there we are). However, we have Peter Turner coming back and he always generates a lot of interest, so I'd like your help with questions for him.

We'll be filming his lecture on June 15th. Any questions (for him) posted here before then will be asked (within the limits of sense and decency :) ).

Thanks, and I look forward to reading what you'd like to hear from him.

Peter can you guess what color will my underwear be by the time the lecture happens?

Also, in your experience, what is your biggest achievement in the mentalism realm?


Thanks.

pd- Awesome if you will be hosting the lecture, Dan.

Dan:

I mentioned this to customer support, but never heard back.

It is my opinion that providing a copy of the show along with the lecture would be a fantastic addition for purchasers. It would make up for the inability to ask live questions during the lecture.

Could you bring this up?

Good news. Peter's first lecture helped me re-ignite a spark that had been dormant for a few years due to family/work responsibilities. He is an excellent teacher, a creative juggernaut, and he has been very kind/generous with me personally when I know good and well he didn't have the time for it.

Me too :)

I'm looking forward to flying into Ohio for some fun, the lecture will be easy watching and interested to see how things have changed since my first visit.

I'm primarily going to aim on performing commercial effects and talk about premise and presentation, character building and story telling within performance.

Anyway, really humbled to be asked to go back,

Great idea. We do try to show as much of it during the lecture as we can, but it's certainly more fun to watch everything in context. I'll bring it up at the next meeting and see what we can work out.

I would ask Pete about his method of revealing the information. He touches on it a little in other places but when does he like to write it on a pad and turn it around versus just verbally telling the person what they are thinking in a theatrical sense.
Best wishes,
Harry

I'd like to ask Pete his thoughts on structuring close-up mentalism performances. As in,

I approach a group, introduce myself as a mentalist/mind reader and ask to try something. Where should you go from there?

Up to this point I technically do a few different effects with different methods, but try to bleed everything into one demonstration. I try and use each different reveal as an opener middle and closing period but without actually doing "3 different tricks".

Hope this question makes sense.


Also, big thanks to Pete for sharing some of his performances and methods with us all, fantastic stuff from a fantastic bloke! I use a few of Petes methods but I'm always influenced and using aspects of your performing tips and philosophies so thanks for elevating mentalism further and further
Message: Posted by: AlexanderG (Jun 12, 2016 08:30AM)
Some of the more general questions that come up most on this board are (1) where did modern mentalism come from, (2) where is it headed, and (3) how best to understand its relation to magic. Not all performers have thoughts about these matters, but if Mr. Turner does, they'd be interesting to hear.
Message: Posted by: billion (Jun 12, 2016 10:09AM)
I would like to ask Pete whether he uses 1 stooge or 2 stooges in his holy grail acaan effect. Kidding aside, I look forward to this event.

Peter,
A lot of your work deals with close up mentalism but I know you also have a knack for creating stage pieces (regardless of it you perform them much these days). If you're open to suggestions I'd really like to see your take on some stage pieces.
Message: Posted by: IMAGINACIAN (Jun 12, 2016 12:18PM)
I like Peter Turner's thinking. Eagerly looking forward to this. I would love to ask this question, if possible. "Does the weird look of a mentalist necessarily enhance impact of his/her performance?" Or is it just a myth which is illogically popular? Like so many others in the fields of magic and mentalism.

I think it's just a myth. Most mentalists I know look like game show hosts or motivational speakers.

Message: Posted by: sjrw (Jun 12, 2016 05:16PM)
Most mentalism performances I've had the pleasure of experiencing followed a kind of procedure > reveal > procedure > reveal > procedure > reveal structure.
When Pete performed for me it felt very different. The words I used to describe it at the time was "a whirlwind of mind reading" I was never conscious of any procedure but was just repeatedly blasted with reveals of my thoughts... It was like it was all happening at once rather than happening one thing after the other.

Peter - what are your thoughts on these two approaches? Do you prefer one over the other? And how do you create this feeling of a "whirlwind of mind reading"?

In addition to this, I'd love to hear your/his thoughts on:

1) Major vs. minor effect theory (ala Mr. Cassidy) and how to turn more minor effects into a major effect.
2) Getting more mileage out of tools like those available by Promystic or Labco (I recall he made a post here regarding the RD that was a nice way of framing the effect).
3) Thoughts on "Extraction of Thoughts" vs. Forcing. Do you have any thoughts on combining the two? Or, a preference of the two?
4) More thoughts on taking chances or "Being Bold". I believe taking chance is one of the most powerful way to create the logical disconnect for effects.

Peter, where one might see you perform for a real world audience, paying audience?

Do you do fully produced shows like Luke Jermay or Colin McLeod? Or do you just do corporate, private work? Or perhaps you're performing regularly at universities?

As a working professional, how do handle when riskier gambits go off track? Or you get busted on pre-show?

What is the best way to get gigs? Do you recommend "gig sites" or do you just have an agent that books your shows?

I think these are things others would like to hear you address - "the business side" - as well as the routine/method stuff.

What will you see in a few weeks from Peter Turner at his second Penguin Live Lecture?

Mentalism that will remind you what your original love for your art is all about.

I'll explain...

It's nearly four AM and I just dropped Pete back across town and I'm still spinning from the material.

It's amazing to see his growth as a performer, creator and a person in general. In his live show Tuesday I witnessed a whole room full of REAL audience members that see it all completely lose track of what they call reality.

I'll be posting more when I'm a little more awake tomorrow...

BUT!

Pete has surpassed his original lecture by leaps and bounds, that being said, I value his original lecture as one of the fondest memories I have since being a regular attendees at these lectures.

Bravo Pete, you've made us all proud man, you're growing more and more into your legend each day.

XX,
Jacob

P.S. Pete completely kills any audience and YES he can fully pull off a full theatrical show with class. You can be as disbelieving as you want, but it doesn't change the fact that I've seen A LOT of live performances for real people during my time being around P3 Studios. That being said, I don't see people on the edge of their seats and fully engrossed in a mentalism performance like Tuesdays audience was all the time.

Wow! What a great lecture. Pete taught some incredibly strong material, including an absolutely amazing approach to DB's Lift. Watching him perform and jazz his way around situations was incredible. However, for me, the greatest value came from the discussions. Pete shared some absolute gems. To top it all off, Pete is an incredibly kind and sincere person. I will undoubtedly be purchasing this as soon as it's available.

Is there any chance that we'd be able to view a recording of the full live show from Tuesday? I'd love to see how Pete structures an act, transitions from piece to piece, etc.

I know this was asked before but I'd like to add my voice to the request/recommendation that the live shows be included in the lecture. I'd even be happy to pay extra for it. Maybe Penguin could have two options available - one just the lecture and another a lecture/live show combo.

I don't know how recent this is, but I noticed last week (and also caught the last few minutes this week) that Penguin started live streaming their Tuesday shows on Facebook. I just checked and it's not available anymore, but it's good to know.

Hey guys I am back in England now after the show/ lecture :D

All in all it was great to be out in the states performing and having fun.

I have had a bunch of messages about the show, so people are aware - The show was aired by accident. I asked that the show not be aired, for no other reason than I am very, very private with my show and the scripts inside it and I purposefully placed two pieces into the live show that I was going to talk about in the lecture. During the lecture I asked the audience if they wanted me to get onto them pieces or go off on a tangent and the entire lecture audience (who didn't come to the show) voted for the tangent - I ended up moving onto hypnosis style pieces instead. I am very giving in all aspects of mentalism but my private stuff I keep for me and share very sparingly.

There was a miscommunication between myself and penguin that resulted in a lot of people tuning into the show. I am not sour over this fact and penguin have been great with me in dealing with the situation. I am in talks with penguin now about getting the footage of the show and because you guys have asked - I am going to share with you one piece from my show and will even tip the method for those who don't know it (from watching the video). Bear with me on getting the video and editing it.

I have a piece in the show that plays out as thus (this is one example of why I didn't want the show airing) -

Before I walk out on stage, there is an envelope hanging the entire time.

At the start of the show I make everyone in the room place their hand on their heart and make me a mental promise, the audience are asked to repeat after me in their heads alone "I promise" (I pause for them to repeat it in their mind) "that no matter what happens during tonights show" (I let them repeat it inside their mind) "I will stay positive" (I give them a second or so and then move on) "I will show you time and time again that the greatest things in life come full circle".

This is where I proceed to the first effect (which I will gloss over here).

During the second effect I set up a premise,

Performer: "One question I am constantly asked is if the ability I have is an ability I am born with or one that I have developed, the honest answer is that everything I do everyone in this room can do. You see even though our jobs and social lives are dissimilar they share specific and certain commonalities. Every single day, each one of us in our social and professional lives make estimations. IF I were to ask you to go back in time and think about the estimations you have made in the past, the mistakes you made, rectified and learned from. Then we came forward into the future and I presented you with a similar situation I would bet the way you acted in that situation after everything you have learnt would be completely different.

It goes to show that our estimations can become more and more accurate to the point that they no longer feel estimations and this is no different.

Let me give you an example".

The audience choose a random audience member to help me out.

Performer: "There is a saying that I really believe to be true, a penny for your thoughts and a pound (dime in america) for your feelings. It expresses that your feelings mean more than your thoughts. Inside this envelope there is a drawing, if you simply guessed what was inside their you would be wrong, but a guess is a good place to start.

If you were to guess what was inside the envelope what would it be?"

Participant: "A circle".

Performer: "Obviously its not, but like I said it is a good place to start. I want you to tell me what you feel I would put inside their, remember this is not about me it is about you so it will be wrong also".

Participant: "A bottle of whisky".

(The participant always gives me a funny answer here, that I riff off of)

Performer: "I want you to imagine it is three o'clock in the morning, the rain is tapping on the window and for whatever reason you cannot sleep. You wake up and you notice a piece of paper and a pen on your bedside table and you start to doodle, nothing in particular at first but you notice that the lines start to take shape. What did you draw?"

Participant: "A building".

Performer: "Like a house or?"

(I am smiling at this point as I have been the entire performance).

Participant: "No, the empire state building".

(This is where my face drops and I start to stutter)

Performer: "I..I t..think that tells me..me erm everything I need to know about you and erm I might get back to you later. Take a seat".

The idea here is to build up the situation to a peak and then completely fail, this is to put a knot into the audience's stomach. If you have managed to get your audience to like your soft natured personality they will feel bad for you".

I then gloss over it and right at the end of the show after telling a beautiful story I say my goodbye.

The compare comes back on and I wait about 5-10 seconds and then come back onto the stage and apologise to the compare and the audience.

Performer: "I am sorry to interrupt, I don't mean to be rude and I promise this won't take more than a moment. Right at the star I said I would prove how the greatest things in life always come full circle and I feel this circle is not yet complete. I had everyone in the room make me a mental promise that no matter what happened, to stay positive. I certainly felt there was one moment tonight where everyone in the room felt negative. The envelope.

What was it again".

Audience: 'The empire state building".

I take the envelope down keeping it cleanly displayed.

Performer: "This should teach that no matter what happens in life you should always stay positive".

I slide the drawing out of the envelope - It is the empire state building!

Proving that the show has come full circle.

I like the idea of not only taking the audience on a mental journey but at the same time affect their feelings. Utilising the fact that I can make them feel a certain way and then not play on (as that is the wrong term) but fit it into the show. It takes balls to build something up for a few moments and then let it drop but the reaction you get when the audience realise you had them twice not once is well worth the wait.

I in no way feel bad about failing and I know a lot of performers will disagree with me - Which is fine, we all do things our own way. I am just happy to have had the chance to go back to penguin a second time.

Onto the lecture.

I felt comfortable this time, relaxed and I hope that shines through.

I was scared the first time, totally felt nervous because I had only done a couple of friendly lectures before that aired. I had never done a lecture that was going out live every word I said, any piece of advice was going out there with no control over it. I always feel an amount of pressure anytime I talk because there are so many great people that surround me that it makes me nervous. Luke jeramy, Colin Mcleod, Ken Dyne, Atlas Brookings, Michael Murray and others that are absolute geniuses each in their own way and I never even expected myself to be amongst their company. I certainly don't consider myself great, I don't compare myself with the aforementioned names (and never would) because this for me is not about that. I am here to share an insight into the way I think and the way I feel and never expected people to listen let alone tune in or want to watch me.

Over the last few years I have grown massively learnt a hell of a lot and I am still learning every single day. I make mistakes, say things I shouldn't say and all I can do it keep on being the best that I can be. I have found myself and my character (which is the hardest thing for any mentalist) and more importantly I am comfortable as a person.

I am 28 years old and I can finally say I am comfortable in my own skin - It is weird just saying that out loud.

In the lecture I share some of my stories and feelings and Dan Harlan did an amazing job (as always) in the presenters seat.

I feel (as did people in the lecture) that this far surpassed the first one and I am glad it did as that was all I was concerned about. I want to share with you guys a small part of my heart to give back all the things that you guys have given to me.

Even though some of us argue from time to time and don't always see eye to eye I consider you siblings and that is what families do - bicker. mentalism has completely changed my life in ways that a lot of you will never hear about (just due to the fact we might not get the chance to sit and talk). I really feel if it wasn't for THIS I would be down and out and I would have been trapped inside my own head, a broken shell of a man.

Anyway, I hope you guys love hearing/ seeing the things in the lecture as much as I loved sharing them.

This has been the longest post I have made on here for well over a year.

Much love,

Pete x

Mentalism has a huge foot in theatrical performances (as opposed to the street) and that is where Luke Jermay, Derren and Mark Spelmann (as examples)are especially strong and in their element.

I didn't get this question before the lecture so il answer it now.

I feel I have however answered this recently in a variety of platforms. My full time profession currently is consulting, the only shows I take on currently are private shows (which is very infrequently) in fact I think the next show I am doing is at the grovesnor casino in September (booked privately) I took that show because I was approached and the price was right whilst I had nothing booked in. I choose not to perform full time, I am however considering a run of small theatres/ play houses but currently I am far too busy. The time I have is very limited - it is currently 4am and I'm just getting wrapped up with a consultation and tomorrow I'm starting again 9am.

I am creating shows that are spread over a variety of platforms (television, theatre etc) my creations play out to thousands of people, writing theatre shows, close up shows and television on a daily basis. I have also started advising on things outside of magic/ mentalism and have worked with a range of commercial companies for their advertisements.

I used to make my living performing, (cabaret style shows in bars/ private venues and weddings) I have too much frequent work currently to have to go back to that. The moment I don't, I will have to - I don't think I could go back to a regular job now. I don't have a big enough platform in terms of a social following to fill theatres - I am filming my own television series (which also takes up a lot of time) once that airs theatre shows are the logical next step.

To answer your question in short, I don't make my living as a performer - but when I do I only currently take private bookings.

Im happy doing things this way, I get to perform everyday - In fact all day everyday, rehearse scripts and create routines that I see play out to larger audiences than I could ever reach (as the performers I consult for have a larger platform than I do). I have learnt things from this experience that when I was performing I never understood and overlooked as I was too 'in' the situation. These things are things I take into my performances now and I have excelled in ways I wouldnt have ever imagined.

Anyway I hope this answers the question :)

This was a great lecture. Peters work on the effect that cannot be explained are fantastic. And you get derrens lift for a fraction of a price of pure effect... So theres that.

Fthe takeaway for me was the jedi push. Looks incredible. That one effect alone was worth the price of the lecture.

Dissapointed to see some things given away that were previpusly limited (there is material from jinxed touched upon) but meh.

If you follow mr. Turners work you will be familiarnwith some of this... But, still a great lecture. The talk on PS is worth st least thrice the cost ofnthe lecture.

Buy this if only for one effect. Mr. Turner is far too generous. This should have been a lot more expensive.

Mr. Turners work isn't for everyone, but it is worth invrsting in.

Peter - thanks for a great lecture. You got my wheels turning. I hope we can chat in the near future.

Yeah, great lecture.
the little bits about forces and little subtleties spread in the lecture are worth for it, you can't blink or else you can loose an interesting principle.

thanks thanks thanks

Just want to say, great lecture. Tips and subtleties that Peter touched upon are worth as much as the effects demonstrated.
