Linguistic Bending will take your metal bending to the next level.
Dee Christopher has been studying metal bending for many years and crafted his own fluid and signature style. This ambitious treatise attacks a subject that is scarcely touched by psychokinetic performers; the use of verbal deception, dual reality and linguistics within metal bending acts.
You will learn several new techniques, the full work on the Syn ploy including variations and some incredible concepts and ploys to build into your performances.

- Introduction to linguistic bending - What is linguistic bending?
- The use of verbal deception - Dee offers his advice on learning any kind of deceptive scripting or ploy.

- Sean McCarthy's take on Syn - Sean McCarthy gives some additions with the Syn ploy and Dee offers his extra advice and techniques.
- The 'Imagine If' ploy - A way to have a spectator fully describe their experience in real time as a coin or fork bends in their hand. This is a huge leap forward and works every single time.
