Popular the world over for his ability to read minds and his spellbinding acts, Lior Suchard, who came to India a few months ago for a private function, is now for the first time, ready to mesmerise people with his out-of-the-ordinary public performance in the city over the weekend. Theatre personality Raell Padamsee’s new company, Numero Uno Productions, has brought down the 30-year-old for the shows.
“I first witnessed Lior’s sheer charm and brilliance at a private function in Mumbai, a few months ago. Ever since, I felt we, just had to bring him down to India so that many more people could see his fantastic acts and be bowled over. It’s supernatural entertainment beyond imagination and one has to just witness the mind-blowing stuff he does,” says Padamsee.
On the other hand, Suchard is excited for his first public show in the city and exclaims that he has fallen in love with the country. “I am extremely excited to be performing here. Ever since I came to India recently, I have fallen in love with the place and the people here are so warm. They are very nice and respectful. I have performed at private events in India but this is my first public performance,” he shares.
Telling us a bit about the show’s highlights, Padamsee informs that Suchard is slated to perform various acts and read people’s minds. He will interact with the audience from the get go and really wow them. He will read their minds, make them feel different sensations without even touching them, will bend spoons by his sheer mental energy and do a lot more.
Echoing a similar stance, Suchard explains: “The audience will be blown away. They will totally freak out; it will be a crazy show, something that they have never seen and felt before. There are various acts that I will bring to the audience. They will truly experience a real-life mentalist who will read their mind and play with their thoughts.”
