Lifting the Veil of Ignorance

Imagine combining The Da Vinci Code, The Dead Poets Society and The Paper Chase...

In this new one-man show, Todd Landman probes deep questions about how we know what we know through a variety of mesmerising and inexplicable feats, combined with a mirthful style of presentation that is guaranteed to entertain.

Projecting himself into the shared 'community of human minds', the Academic Magician explores a variety of themes and perennial questions that are just as important today as they were when first raised by ancient philosophers.




What is one thing that you absolutely know to be true?

Is life really 'solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short'?

Do human rights really exist?

What is really valuable for leading the good life?


free will


What do we know that really matters?

Do you choose to act morally?


ring of gyges


Do we have free will?

What is the basis for a just society?



These and other significant questions find their answers through a dynamic, highly interactive and entertaining show that is fun and engaging for all!
