Darkfield’s Séance is now in its final week in London as this year’s VAULT Festival winds to a close. Here’s a reminder of what some of the critics – including two Mates – have said about this spooky sensory sensation. Better get booking before it’s too late!
I’ve been so enjoying working on Featured Show campaigns for 1927 Productions’ The Animals and Children took to the Streets and Darkfield’s Seance and Flight. Luckily, I also managed to see all three shows myself. Here’s a round-up of my on-the-night reactions to each.
If your day is lacking a little awe, take a look at these production images from Flight Paths. The gallery of images depicting the show which fuses circus with narrative, music and the performers’ personal stories is awesome. Explore the gallery then book your tickets for this touring show!
Shunt, a collective of theatremakers that had huge success with their site-specific productions around London Bridge from 2000 to 2010, has also spawned Darkfield, founded by former Shunters Glen Neath, David Rosenberg and Andrea Salazar. In our interview, Glen explains how Darkfield’s binaural work in shipping containers has evolved. Time to get booking!
Seance is a sensory rather than a theatrical performance. In a small audience, you find yourselves being asked to contact the dead, in 20 minutes and in the blackest darkness with headphones and a table your only prop.
You’ll soon have not one but two sonic sensation shows from Darkfield to experience at VAULT Festival. On 20 February 2019, their second shipping container brings Flight to land outside the Vaults in London’s Waterloo. Watch the trailer – and see how audiences have been reacting in Edinburgh and on tour. Time to get booking!
Séance is one of two productions that Darkfield has brought to the VAULT Festival this year, and this sensory explosion is not one for the faint-hearted.
Have you experienced sonic specialists Darkfield? Their hit container show Séance helps launch VAULT Festival this week. Watch the trailer – and see how audiences have been reacting on tour. These are twenty minutes you’ll never forget. Time to get booking!
