More than a few of you were surprised to learn, on closer inspection, that this image for the new show ‘The Great Art Robbery’ was not a painting on a canvas – but in fact a painting on Derren’s face.
So we thought you may be interested to take a peek into the process that brought this particular work of art to life with some behind the scenes snaps and a little video.
In this brand new episode, master illusionist and showman Derren Brown plans to pull off the perfect crime: He’s bet renowned art collector Ivan Massow, that he can steal a painting from right under his nose. In true Derren style, he will tell him exactly which painting he plans to target – a work by Turner-nominated British brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman no less – as well as what time the theft will happen. He’ll even give him a photograph of the person that’s going to take it. (more…)
Derren Brown: INFAMOUS opened at The Palace Theatre in London’s glamorous West End on 24th June and is now drawing rapidly to its conclusion on August 17th.
If you came to see the show and would like to own a unique souvenir, or even if you didn’t make it but would like to sit at home sipping a hot beverage and imagining that you were there – go ahead and treat yourself to the limited edition Derren Brown: INFAMOUS – WEST END RUN 2013 Mug.
The limited edition mug features the tour artwork and all the dates of the show’s run at The Palace Theatre.
These will only be available for a short time and only from us, so if you think you might want one, you’d best get one while you can!
DERREN BROWN: INFAMOUS is at the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, until August 17.
Over the last two weeks Derren Brown has been struggling with a difficult throat condition.
This has now reached a point where he is unable to speak above a whisper and it is with great regret that he will be unable to perform on Wednesday 31st July and Thursday 1st August.
He is very concerned for his fans and is determined to be back on stage in the shortest possible time. The theatre will be getting in touch with all ticket holders.
