Behind the doors of three mysterious shipping containers, strange worlds unfold. Three intense and deeply immersive experiences in pitch darkness are waiting for you. Step inside, put on the headphones. Soon the lights will go out.
We will not prey upon the paranoid, the bereaved, the credulous, the wide-eyed, the weak…Séance is an entertainment only and we cannot hold the medium responsible for the outcome.
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.
Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the on-board safety demonstration and ask that you give us your full attention. In the unlikely event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, alternative scenarios will be provided… Neither Heaven nor Hell is assured. We’re not responsible for your final destination.
This 40ft container’s interior exactly resembles an Airbus 320 economy cabin and over 30 minutes transports you into two parallel worlds: two realities offering two possible outcomes to your journey.
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.
