A multi-sensory sonic theme park
Discover three immersive theatre experiences set in shipping containers on Montgomery Square this September. Behind the doors of each a strange world unfolds. Three intense and deeply immersive experiences in pitch darkness are waiting for you: Séance, Flight and Coma. Step inside, put on the headphones and soon the lights will go out.
After welcoming over 100,000 audience members worldwide and three sold out Edinburgh Festival Fringe runs, innovative and risk-taking theatre company DARKFIELD bring their shows to Canary Wharf.
SÉANCE – the first DARKFIELD experience, transforms the interior of a 24ft container into a Victorian séance room. Over 20 minutes, it explores the psychology of a group of people, and asks that they believe, not only in what seems to be happening inside the container but also in what might be conjured up into the room with them.
FLIGHT – The 40ft container’s interior exactly resembles an Airbus 320 economy cabin, and over 30 minutes transports audience members into two parallel worlds: two realities offering two possible outcomes to their journey.
COMA – DARKFIELD’s brand new show COMA premiered at Summerhall at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and its visit to Canary Wharf marks its London premiere. Over 30 minutes, the audience is invited to take part in a mass experiment, to lie down together and slip into a collective dream.
