Ben Dali is a dynamic, unpredictable and thoroughly modern stage hypnotist. Updating classic hypnotic concepts and creating unique and relevant sketches revolving around recent news stories and pop culture icons, he brings hypnosis into the 21st century like no other. With over a decade of varied stage experience he engages instantly with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Dali has performed hypnosis for Google, hypnotised the boyband Union J and amazed Sir Ian McKellen with mentalist effects.
In Strictly Come Trancing, Ben Dali introduces the show with a comical scientific explanation of hypnosis, complete with hypnotic optical illusion, before inviting volunteers up to the stage. Once the volunteers have been induced into hypnotic trance in front of the audience the fun truly begins, and what happens next is anyone's guess. Audiences can expect live rapping, breakdancing, political debate, spontaneous quizzes, nude art, and 'guest appearances' from high profile celebrities and sex-crazed aliens, while frequently encouraged to interact with volunteers and help shape the show. As each performance of Strictly Come Trancing is adapted to its volunteers and spectators, no two shows are ever quite the same.
