Theatre Festival Favorite, Mindtripping, Returns

As the weather warms up in Indiana, Indianapolis theatre begins the homestretch approach to the annual IndyFringe Theatre Festival. This Indianapolis festival caps off the Summer each August, but the fun starts well in advance. IndyFringe Theatre Festival organizers have been hosting Indianapolis events at their IndyFringe Building all year. Now they add to the mix Fringe Friday’s and special appearances from Fringes of the Past. This weekend IndyFringe Theatre Festival favorite, Mindtripping: Psychological Illusions, returns to the Circle City for three shows, an IndyFringe appetizer. Tickets are $20.00 for Indianapolis people and $10.00 for Indianapolis kids with a student ID. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 3:00 pm. Try to wrap your mind around this Indianapolis performing arts event!

Mindtripping: Psychological Illusions offers a husband and wife team that will really blow your mind. Their comedy mind reading act is one of the best in the country. These veterans of the IndyFringe Theatre Festival return to Indianapolis downtown for more this weekend. Their show is a unique blend of ghost conjuring, mind reading, other strange phenomenon and psychological intrigue. Christian and Katalina engage each audience in a mind based wrestling match. Find yourself torn between the stark reality of what must be true and the mind boggling experience of the illusions they create.

Their collection of the strange and bizarre comes from years of experience on stage. Yet each performance finds Christian and Katalina as excited as ever to twist and trick audience members into believing the impossible. Better than magic shows on television, these illusions are performed live with no camera trick or fancy editing. Decode the mystery that will happen before your very own eyes.

Both Christian and Katalina have collaborated to create a show where every audience member sees the same thing, yet each viewers has a different emotional response. “We try to make your experience a kaleidoscope of new sensory and cerebral input,” they explain. Whether you believe it or not, you will see the impossible happen on stage when this dynamic husband and wife duo take charge of the IndyFringe Building on Mass Ave downtown. Don’t get nervous or anxious, don’t run away; just hold on tight for a wild ride where impossibility becomes reality.

Don’t miss this exciting Indianapolis theatre event downtown. Head to the Indianapolis cultural district, Mass Ave, Friday through Sunday to have your mind blown at Mindtripping: Psychological Illusions. And keep coming back to Fun City for more information about all the great stuff being planned by the indyFringe Theatre Festival for this summer. From Acrocats to Diva Fest, the indyFringe Building is alive with theatre activity.
