Use Your Illusion

Bron Batten

Collingwood Masonic Lodge

After ten years of creative output Bron Batten got stuck in a rut. So she decided to visit a hypnotist to see if they could help her create her next show. This is what happened.

Use Your Illusion was a collaboration between Bron and a qualified hypnotist who  placed her and several audience participants under hypnosis live onstage, blurring the lines between ‘truth’, ‘acting’, ‘performance’ and straight out ‘lying’. Set in the depths of the Collingwood Masonic Lodge the work drew on the mysterious atmosphere of this exclusive environment. Use Your Illusion pushed the boundaries of inhibition, exploited the power of suggestion and posed the question, what won’t Bron do for our entertainment?
