At Messmer’s hypnosis show “I totally lost control of my body” – Quimper



“I didn’t believe it but… I totally fell into it,” exclaims Wilfried, 35, from Langolen, puffing on his cigarette during the intermission, half stoned, as if waking up. And there a flash: “But, I made Messmer feel my shoe! But shame! In fact you hit the poster but you have to do it”.

Enough to make spectators laugh, curious to collect his testimony after having seen him, with about fifteen other people, do very strange things, on stage, under the control of Messmer. Next to him, Tyfenn, 22, from Quimper, also wakes up from her experience: “It’s weird. I was conscious of everything but I had totally lost control of my body”. Both didn’t really believe it. Had never been hypnotized. And had met Messmer even less. But how did they get there? Return at 8 p.m. for the start of the show.

Comedians?

In the hall of Penvillers, 1,000 people. On stage, Messmer, his assistant, about fifteen chairs and smoke to put on an “American show”. Very quickly, he asks the audience to anchor their feet to the ground, focus on his voice and bring their hands together. “At three, they will block, he influences with his deep and charismatic voice. You can’t move them anymore. Now stand up! “. About fifty people run. Impressive. Unless it’s just actors? However, by carefully scrutinizing the gaze of the hypnotized neighbors, we have the feeling that they are in another world. The gaze is frozen, the smile… silly.

Fall asleep in three seconds

Thirty people take the stage. He selects fifteen of them in a more than particular way: he puts them to sleep in barely three seconds. He approaches one. Say a few words to him. And the viewer falls asleep. On stage, cameramen retransmit close-up images of the hypnotized. He asks them to move, pull up the blanket, warm up with their neighbors. They run. The wide awake spectators in the room are amazed: “It’s incredible! “. Many also laugh at the incongruous side of the situation. “You will now wake up, get up and go to a chair on the stage,” Messmer orders. Their faces, roughly on the giant screen, give the impression that they have really just woken up. The eyes are red and marked.

Once on stage, some still had their hands glued, like for this spectator that Messmer had to unblock.

50 years taken in an hour

All the rest of the show. Messmer will make them “live sensory adventures”. ” You feel ? It smells very bad! You have to put your shoe in front of your mouth. It’s your oxygen mask. The hypnotized hold their noses, make faces and hurry to put a shoe in front of their face.

He selects Michael. “You are 70 years old. And you’re going to have them for the whole show.” “I have a bad back,” replies the 29-year-old, adopting a bent posture. During the intermission, he joins his girlfriend. He is totally amorphous. “I don’t recognize him,” she laughs. “You were born in 1992 and it’s 2022,” she told him. Michael nods weakly. “How old are you then? “. He thinks, takes a moment, and answers: “70 years”. And he will remain convinced of it until Messmer brings him back to his 29th birthday.

A stunning show!
