Entertainer Christopher Carter, a hypnotist and mentalist, returns to Juneau for a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at the University of Alaska Student Activities Center.
Carter said he's more of a tour guide through the world of hypnotism than he is the star of the show the real entertainers will be the audience volunteers who participate under hypnosis.
Volunteers in a hypnotic trance take an imaginative reality and behave as if it's absolutely true, he said. They tend to feel that the things they're doing are completely serious and make sense, no matter how absurd.
His program also includes mind reading and extra sensory perception, in which he reads audience members' minds and answers "telepathically projected" questions. He said he uses applied psychological principles and a well-honed sense of intuition.
Carter called college crowds his favorite type of audience because they are eager to volunteer and try out new and unusual things.
Admission is $5, and is free to members of the Student Activities Center.
