    The Great Art Robbery Fear & Faith Apocalypse
THE GREAT ART ROBBERY
December 2013

 

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 tells him exactly which painting he has targeted – a work worth £100,000 by Turner-nominated British brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman. He also tells him the exact date and time the robbery will occur and gives him a photograph of the person that will do it.  In order to pull off the theft Derren recruits a crew; but he’s not going to use career criminals or skilled cat burglars. Derren employs members of society that tend to slip by unnoticed: old age pensioners.

FEAR & FAITH
November 2012

 

Consisting of two very different shows, this two-parter explores the power of ideas, the overcoming of fear, and the nature of religious faith. Part One is an astonishing experiment into the power of placebo. A team of volunteers, each crippled by a different type of fear, visits what they believe to be a pharmacological research laboratory to receive a course of a powerful new drug that will eliminate their debilitating conditions. In Part Two, Derren explores a psychological take on religion and puts his theory to the test by converting an atheist to Christianity.
Both shows prove to be ultimately moving, and powerfully thought-provoking.

APOCALYPSE
October 2012

 

Derren Brown – Apocalypse unleashes his most audacious plan yet – to convince one person that the planet has been devastated by a catastrophic meteorite strike, that a lethal infected engulfs the land and he is one of a mere handful of survivors.
Our ‘survivor’ is someone who takes life for granted, and has yet to truly value what he has. The adventure that awaits him is meticulously crafted to give him the ultimate wake-up call, and teach him valuable life-lessons.
Will he rise to the challenge?
