Brain Power 

Ten years ago, West Bottoms resident Michael Morales, an Indonesian martial artist and dreadlocked trendsetter, organized freak shows. With a network of killer clowns, fire-eaters and burlesque dancers a phone call away, Morales took what he calls the "little bit of carny" he had in him and entertained the masses. A motorcycle accident at the end of 2004 switched his focus, altered his brain and gave him, he says, "the ability to bend metal." Witness a shorn, clean-cut Morales execute acts of subliminal influence, mentalism and telekinesis in Enigma, a 75-minute show at the Next Space (512 East 18th Street, 816-805-2506) that, according to a press release, is "not recommended for religious fundamentalists or kids under 16." No volunteers will be asked to come onstage, but a high level of audience participation is required for this intellectually challenging performance. The clairvoyant throwdown starts at 9 tonight and Saturday. Tickets cost $10 at the door, and seating is limited.
Fri., May 21, 9 p.m.; Sat., May 22, 9 p.m., 2010
