Darkfield presents extraordinary immersive work at the forefront of technology and theatre.
Over 30 minutes, the audience is invited to take part in a mass experiment, to lie down together and imagine a new collective reality.
Imagine the moment of waking up is actually the moment when your dream begins. In light of this new and strange reality, how can we save you from the unspeakable horrors which lurk in the dark recesses of your mind? The only cure we offer is a placebo and a promise. Please remember when you leave to take your body with you.
This Immersive experience takes place in a shipping containers and uses binaural 360 degree sound, complete darkness and a variety of sensory effects to situate each audience member at the centre of intense evolving narratives. Behind the doors of each container a strange world unfolds. Step inside, put on the headphones and soon the lights will go out.
