On The Level with Scott Silven
In our latest episode of On The Level, we have a beguiling chat with the world renowned mentalist, Scott Silven – who performed at the Sydney Opera House last year after sell out performances at Sydney Festival and Melbourne International Arts Festival – about the power of imagination. He describes influences that inform his performances, such as filmmaker David Lynch, hypnosis, and his mentor growing up Roy Walton – the proprietor of one of the world’s oldest magic shops – who designed card tricks performed by David Blaine and David Copperfield.
Candid, in-depth, and always revealing, On The Level is a monthly interview series that catches up with artists during their visit to the Sydney Opera House, discussing their careers, inspirations, and preparations for their performance.
