Thoughts transcend. Mysteries materialise. Dreams are revealed. To witness the work of Scott Silven is to experience a modern-day marvel like no other. As an international illusionist, mentalist, and performance artist, Silven consistently pushes the boundaries of his craft and challenges its conventions by creating stylish, intelligent, and uniquely immersive performance pieces that mesmerise audiences across the globe. His previous performances have been hailed as ‘not just a magic show, but an immersion into the impossible’ (Broadway Baby), and he is seen as someone who ‘transcends the arts and performance to provide an experience like no other’ (SG Fringe).
Naturally curious and enquiring as a child, his innate fascination with the enigmatic and unexplainable guided him to the traditional craft of illusion at a young age, before he was swiftly seduced by mentalism and exploring the intricate mysteries of the mind.This, in turn, led him to studying hypnosis in Milan at the tender age of 15 and quickly progressing to a degree in Contemporary Performance in Edinburgh. On graduating, Silven immediately used this background in theatre and illusion, coupled with a passion for psychology and his knowledge of hypnosis, to begin developing truly singular theatrical experiences.
Now, at just 27 years old, his work is extensive in scale. From collaborating with acclaimed venues and luxury brands- such as the NationalTheatre and LVMH- to developing his own productions that have toured global arts festivals, including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where his performances have sold-out to critical acclaim from 2013-2016.
From an intimate parlour to a grand stage, Silven’s objectives remain absolute: to orchestrate an awe-inspiring experience, to reveal the mysterious side of human nature, and, ultimately, to lead his audiences to a place that suggests untold possibilities, a place that challenges perceptions; a place that allows them to look at the world, and themselves, in an extraordinary way.
