Remote Control: A Mindreading Experiment brings mentalism, hypnosis, and mind-bending fun to southwest Michigan LIVE via Zoom

The Mendel Center is partnering with Mills Entertainment, to present Remote Control: A Mindreading Experiment for three online performances on Oct. 1, 2, and 3, all at 8 pm.

Not just a show, Remote Control is a hands-on experience hosted by leading mentalist, Max Major, who just wrapped up his incredible run on America’s Got Talent. The intrigue kicks off before the show even begins when audience members receive a TOP secret package in the mail. It must remain sealed until the show begins. Once opened, its contents help unleash real-life Jedi mind tricks that fuel the evening.

Dubbed the “real-life Sherlock Holmes,” Max Major has appeared on the Today Show and America’s Got Talent, as well as dozens of viral videos that have stunned millions across the internet. An expert in body language, influence, and reading people, Max has been called before two Department of Defense Intelligence Agencies to demonstrate his innovative techniques, earning him the reputation as “the human lie detector” along the way.

Passes to access this live streaming event via Zoom are $30, plus applicable service fees, per device and are on sale now at, or by calling the Mendel Center Box Office at 269-927-8700, option 1. Temporary box office hours are Mondays and Tuesdays from 10 am to 2 pm.

Capacity is kept at a minimum. Whether enjoying the show solo or sharing the fun with the entire family, each pass allows viewing on one device.
